Made in Canada
The Godin 5th Avenue Jumbo HB Memphis Sun is one of our next-generation archtops, based on the classic 5th Avenue we’ve become known for, with a deeper ‘Jumbo’ body depth. The new Jumbo model delivers classic vintage tone, with a sweet and mellow roundness.
Whether you play jazz, alt-country, delta blues, rock, or anything in between, the Godin 5th Avenue Jumbo HB Memphis Sun is a dream to play thanks to its Canadian craftsmanship.
The Jumbo body provides plenty of projection, with its Canadian Wild Cherry archtop top, back and sides and retro-inspired custom polished finish. Other features include a Rosewood fingerboard, Silver Leaf Maple Neck, Graphtech Adjustable Tusq Bridge (base) w/ T.O.M. With Roller Saddles and trapeze tailpiece and a custom-engraved headstock plate. The 24.84” scale neck offers an exceptionally comfortable feel to this guitar – delivering rich sound and great looks.
Built with the performer in mind, the 5th Avenue Jumbo HB Memphis Sun provides a diverse range of tone, courtesy of a Custom Godin Humbucker at the neck, and Seymour Duncan ’59 at the bridge, plus volume, tone and 3-way switch right at your fingertips.
From studio to stage, the 5th Avenue Jumbo HB Memphis Sun is a tone-drenched guitar you won’t want to put down!
