I have a Godin Kingpin with the single P90 neck PU. No it's not a punchy arch-top acoustic jazz guitar, not even close.

This is a remake of the old plywood every man's arch-top of the late 40's and 50's. With pure nickel 0.13's your can get a decent roots unplugged sound out of the plywood. The build quality is really nice for the price point. They can be had used for 4-5 bills all the time.

The P90 through a tube amp really shines for retro tones. I use an Excelsior and it likes the mic channel.

Find a Godin dealer and try one of these. Remember that it's probably got the stock 0.12's on it and that it takes 0.13's to wake it up.
