Question Godin Redline - anybody play or own one of these?

They look very tempting. Good price. I've heard really good things about Godin's quality.

I'm curious about how the neck feels compared to a Wizard neck.

Anybody have experience with these guitars?

Re: Godin Redline - anybody play or own one of these?

I've played a bunch of Godin guitars - and I'm always impressed. I just don't like the finishes on the Redlines, or the headstock. But I'd trust anything they made. Their necks are typically wide - not nearly as thin as a wizard, but comfy. Sort of a D shape if I recall correctly.

interesting. So they have the same radius as the Wizard, super jumbo frets, just as wide, but the neck itself on the Godin is thicker. I wonder how much thicker? Like Les Paul thick?

Re: Godin Redline - anybody play or own one of these?

I don't own a Redline but I've played a few. I do own 2 Godin (LG Signature and Summit CT).

I would say the neck is about as wide as an Ibanez but thicker and rounder in the back and flat on the fretboard. Very comfy neck and doesn't feel like a baseball bat like on some Gibson. But do not expect the "thin" feel of a wizard neck. Hope this help.

I'm big on my legato technique. It's how I generate speedy licks.

I'm wondering if my legato would be good on this neck? I think the super jumbo frets and the flat radius would be big help.

This guitar is amazing, it is currently it is my most comfortable guitar and is extremly reliable, i bought if for 400$ and it is better than my gibosn flying V (there are pickup issues with the V tho) and my fender telecaster. Never played a wizard tho. But this is still ana amzing guitar

I have played them once in a guitarstore. They have the sound you can expect from emg's. There's also a version with a floydrose but i think you can get a guitar with emg's and a floydrose for less.
