I have a chance to pick up a Godin Detour for 150 bucks. It's very plain but it feels good and sounds alright. I was hoping a few people might chime in and tell me a little about this guitar. Thanks!

Just wondering if anybody has any experience with a Godin Detour, and if 150 is a fair price.

I had a silver one. Pretty nice overall, but a bit heavy and it just felt a bit stiff. Nice quality hardware. Interesting bridge design. I thought the neck pickup was OK if a bit generic but I replaced the bridge pickup with a Dimarzio Air Norton. If I'd kept it longer, I probably would have replaced the neck with a Seth Lover, 57 Classic or 36th Anniversary.

Basically if you want a Gibson-scale, Gibson-ish sound, strat shaped guitar made in Canada for $150 used, you could do a whole lot worse. Plus their gig bags are top notch!

I tried a used one at my local GC about a year, it was quite nice and felt like a quality instrument, but it was very heavy. That was a deal breaker for me.

Ok I will be the first to say it (I am sure others will chime in)... Godin makes wonderful guitars. The guitars are North American made. The value, for a new Godin, is very good. Prices for used Godins are ridiculously low. Bottom line is that used Godins are great value ! Do it :)
