Was just on amazon.ca checking out the price for Godin Session blackburst couldn't believe the price they were asking $681.25 . Don't get me wrong this guitar is worth more money than that because of quality. I purchased mine new this past June for $499.00. The shop I purchased from ordered it in it was made this year and matched at that time the price of online company. The price had gone up to $539.99 which that is the price were many are selling it for right now. Also came with the very good gig bag as well. Amazon sells the gig bag separate at a cost of $125.27. If your looking for a strap go to Godin site highest price strap $55.00. The straps Amazon selling under Godin name upwards of $100.00. Amazon is a rip-off they are gouging people for those of you who think online shopping is cheaper in all cases think again! I buy from my local dealer they have always matched the competitions price for me. I like to keep my local guy's working and they are alway's there when I need them.
