A Guitar for Those Passionate About Single-coilsAre you looking for a unique and innovative single-coil guitar? You owe it to yourself to check out the Godin Passion RG-3 guitar. This guitar is a culmination of Robert Godin's guitar vision and the request of players from over the years. Not just another single-coil knock-off, the RG-3 boasts unique woods, chambered bodies, custom neck design and innovative electronics. The Passion RG-3 bodies are made from sitka spruce or red cedar and designed with five specifically tuned chambers to keep the guitar lightweight and resonant. The custom-voiced pickups and High-Definition Revoicer electronics give this guitar a versatility unseen in other single-coil guitars. The Godin Passion RG-3 guitars are an evolution of the single-coil guitar.
Passion RG-3 at a Glance:
Unique Tone Woods
The Godin Passion RG-3 series of guitars uses incredibly resonant woods for the body and top. You can choose between sitka spruce or red cedar for the body of your guitar. Red cedar is extremely lightweight and resonant, this is the same type of wood used in harpsichords. Sitka spruce is well known as an acoustic guitar top wood with excellent sound. Sitka spruce bodies are finished with flamed maple tops, while the red cedar RG-3s are finished with a mahogany top.
We all want a long sustain and great tonality out of our guitars, and Godin has provided this in the Passion RG-3 guitars thanks to the carefully designed chambering system. Five chambers, that have been tuned to specific notes, are interconnected with channels in the body to allow optimal air transfer. The Passion RG-3 provides exceptional tone, resonance, and a lightweight body.
Godin went through tons of pickups to find the perfect sound for the Passion RG-3. They eventually went to the design table and created their own, which truly bring out the best of the RG-3. Not only do you get amazing tones, but Godin also included their HDR circuit, the High-Definition Revoicer. The HDR preamp has four custom-tuned preamps, it takes the passive pickups and makes them active which actually changes the character of the pickups and gives great definition, especially for fingerstyle playing. It's like having ten pickup settings instead of five. Godin's Passion RG-3 gives you the tones you need.
