Premium tonewoods

The Godin Passion RG-2 series of guitars uses incredibly resonant woods for the body and top. Sitka spruce is well known as an acoustic guitar top wood with a very lively and musical sound, a great tonal starting point. The Passion RG-2 is finished with a flamed maple top, adding sweet looks as well as enhancing bite and snap in your tone.

Resonant chambering

We all want a long sustain and great tonality out of our guitars, and Godin has provided this in the Passion RG-2 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-2 provides exceptional tone, resonance, and a lightweight body.

USB out for easy computer recording

The Passion RG-2 makes it easy to connect to your guitar with its USB output. Whether you're trying out amplifier modeling software, or recording into your DAW, you won't have to worry about your inspiration fading as you set up a signal chain. Just connect a single USB cable, and you're ready to play.

Fabulous

Best electric I have ever played. Reminds me a little of a Telecaster.
4.5/5

Mature Beautiful Instrument

When I saw there wasn't a review I thought I better contribute. Out of the 25 guitars I own, 16 are Godin. I play them all and obviously I find Godin a good value for the money. The Passion is very modern with the 13 pin for midi and a USB port. When you see John McLaughlin in a suit playing this guitar you think yeah, it's a mature beautiful instrument. I had to knock off a half star because my preference was to move the volume knob out of the way. wasn't hard to do. Cheers
Music background: played Guitar 50 years, still play 6-10 hrs / day

Awesome guiyar

Awesome guitar, Play nicely, the neck is very smooth, the neck pick up sound sweet & the bridge is good but little less bites. Drop off one star for graphtech. Godin should had put Roland in it instead of graphtech. Graphtech sensitivity is not that good & hard to adjust setting with Roland Gr55. I owned it and very happy with it. Overall is well made guitar.
