Peux mieux faire
Pappass, 28.11.2019
Bonne idée que cette Montreal Premiere, guitare légère et sonore, manche agréable.
Mais... Des aigus beaucoup, et beaucoup trop. Ça sonne comme un trousseau de clefs.
Et une guitare qui tend à piquer du nez en position debout.

Maintenant les choses qui fâchent pour une guitare de ce prix (et voir même sur une guitare moitié moins chère) :
Micro chevalet placé de travers.
Un trou (oui un trou... perçage guide ou je ne sais quoi, je n'ai pas démonté le cadre du micro pour en savoir plus) qui dépasse au milieu du cadre du micro sur la table de la guitare, au début j'ai cru que c'était le cadre en plastique qui avait été mal ébavuré, mais non. Bel et bien un trou d'à peu près 10mm qui dépasse du cadre... D'autant plus étrange que la défonce pour un micro est plus ou moins rectangulaire, bref...
Ensuite, le vernis sur la tranche du manche vraiment mal poncé avant polissage, des trous et des bosses...
Pareil pour la table, des allures de terrain vague en la regardant de près.

On pourrai se dire, oui bon, c'est cosmétique. Mais à 1690€ je me permets d'être exigeant, un minimum.

Donc retour (très vite réglé, merci Thomann).

Absolut hochwertig!
Algitarre, 12.02.2021
Da die Godin Montreal Premiere hier nur eine rätselhafte 2 Sterne Bewertung bekommen hat, möchte ich hier meine (ganz andere) Sicht der Dinge schildern.

Ich war länger auf der Suche nach einer hollowbody oder semihollow mit kleinerem Korpus als die typische ES335. Vor der Godin hatte ich bereits eine Comins GCS1 und eine 80er Ibanez AM205 getestet. Die Godin Montreal Premiere hat mir eindeutig am besten gefallen.

Verarbeitungstechnisch gibt es da überhaupt nichts zu bemängeln, das ist absolut höchstes Niveau. Alles funktioniert wie es soll und ich finde man merkt bei jedem Ton das man ein hochwertiges Instrument in der Hand hält. Der Hals und sowieso alles fühlt sich einfach super an!
Die Bauweise sorgt dafür, dass die Humbucker nicht ganz so fett wie bei einer solidbody klingen, sondern etwas luftiger.
Wenn man die Gitarre ohne Amp spielt, merkt man schon das Potenzial der Gitarre. So einen guten unverstärkten Sound habe ich noch nie gehört.
Was die Montreal nicht hat, ist leichter Zugang zu den hohen Bünden. Ab Bund 14. wirds für die linke Hand schon zeimlich schwierig. Also nichts für Soli jenseits des 15. Bund. Bei jedem Ton über dem 15. Bund, ist es nicht mehr möglich den Daumen hinter dem Griffbrett (hinter den anderen Fingern) zu führen.

Alles in allem ein top Instrument, was seine Stärken sicherlich im clean Bereich hat, aber bei Bedarf auch rocken kann! Ich denke für diesen Preis, gibt es kaum ein besseres Instrument dieser Bauart zu kaufen!
