Rock Different

Godin's Dorchester with Bigsby fits the bill if you're seeking a solidbody electric guitar that looks and sounds like nothing else out there. A member of Godin's Richmond series, this axe positively oozes retro-space-age mojo. Sizzling full-range tone explodes from pair of Lace Alumitone humbuckers. The rock maple neck gives you the worn-in feel of an Ergocut rosewood fingerboard for an amazingly comfortable playing experience, while a Bigsby tailpiece serves up the vibe. This axe has unconventional written all over it. Rock different, with the Godin Dorchester.

Lace Alumitone humbuckers deliver sizzling full-range tone

Godin spec'd the Dorchester with a pair of Lace Alumitone humbuckers. You'll immediately notice that these pups look like no other pickup you've ever seen, and that's because they represent a total departure from traditional pickup designs. There's solid science behind this. Compared to copper and other metals, aluminum offers a greater current flow as electrons travel through it. The chrome area in the Alumitone design acts as a giant single turn of wire to create the flux field. All this gives Alumitones huge broadband response, allowing them to bring out the sonic nuances of your guitar and amplifier better than conventional pickups. Alumitones deliver massive lows, liquid midrange, and sparkling highs - all with stunning clarity and articulation. Like deliciously fat single-coils that sit beautifully in the mix. Other Alumitone advantages include greater resistance to microphonic feedback and virtually no interference with your computer setup. Lastly, aluminum is lighter in weight than copper, noticeably shaving weight off your guitar. OK, enough science. Suffice it to say that once you play through Alumitones, there's no going back!

Ergocut rosewood fingerboard gives you buttery playability

Godin, in their wisdom, have figured out how to give a new guitar the juicy, worn-in playability your fretting hand craves. It's called Ergocut, and all Godins have it. Ergocut is a proprietary Godin shaping technique that bevels the edges of the fingerboard and frets back in toward the center of the fingerboard, giving you the comfortable feel of a played-in guitar. The Godin Dorchester features an Ergocut rosewood fingerboard mated to a rock maple bolt-on neck.

Rock maple neck delivers amazing high end, sustain, and stability

The Godin Dorchester is fitted with a rock maple neck. Grown in the northeastern part of Canada, rock maple benefits from the colder climate and shorter growing season in this region, which results in a considerably denser grade of maple than that grown in a more temperate climate. What does this mean for guitarists? Enhanced high frequency response and excellent sustain, as well as incredible stability. All good things!
