This is the newest version of the Godin Montreal Premiere. It's not on their website yet, but they've upgraded the pickups to Seymour Duncans with an Alnico II in the neck and a 59 in the bridge. I've had the guitar for about a week and I'm really having fun with it. I have the guitar tuned down to C#/Db standard. The recording is absolutely live with no additional processing or edits.
