    I recently received a Godin Session Custom in a trade, and these guitars don't get enough love. Great USA/Canada build quality, excellent necks, wonderful stock pickups and a very cool "HD Revoicer" circuit that changes the sound of the pickups. It's quickly becoming my main axe. Anyone else out there rocking a Non-Tele Tele?

    The Godins are GREAT guitars!!
    They don't get the "love" they deserve.

    Reverend does a "Buckshot" that is another great guitar.
    The Bass Contour Knob rolls off Bass so you can thin things out our go real hot. Also great for adapting to the room. I use a similar model with 2 Gretsch-style pickups and love the thing.
    Gibson guys feel at home with the TOM / Stoptail.
    Many players (myself included) have popped Vibramate Bigsbys onto them.

    Like the Godin, a LOT of guitar for the money.

    Not sure if this qualifies as it's a double cut. a LAG "The Blues" Louisiane from about 1997

    Pickups are a SD Hot Rails Tele and a Jazz in the neck, basswood body with maple top, maple neck with supposedly a brazilian rosewood fingerboard. It feels more like a tele than a strat.

    I've never seen one of those before, but that is a striking guitar. It has a really nice flow to the design.

    Anyone ever played the Godin Session Custom LTD which is a tele type guitar like the OP shows but with a Duncan P-rails neck pickup?
