Montreal, Canada - January 9th, 2007 - Making its official debut at this years winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, the new Simon & Patrick Songsmith plays the right tune for players everywhere and their wallets.
Finely crafted in Canada by Montreal based Godin Guitars, the S&P Songsmith delivers incredible value, impeccable craftsmanship and a sound that will inspire players and fledgling songwriters to get that tune inside of their heads out to the masses.
Available in both dreadnought and folk size models, the Songsmith features wild cherry back and sides along with Select Pressure Tested solid spruce tops delivering a very responsive and well balanced sound. The procedure of pressure testing each top insures that only the best quality tops will be chosen for their high level of stiffness and rigidity, which translates to an optimal level of harmonic vibration in the top. The comfortable necks on the Songsmiths are made from silver leaf maple and feature the new Integrated Set neck system, which adds increased stability through varying changes in climate. Other features include the vintage appeal of a semi-gloss varnish burst finish, wood inlay rosette, contoured headstock, cream double binding, a double function truss rod and Tusq nuts and fully compensated saddles.
