NAMM 2020: Godin has thrown its hat into the 12-string ring in the run-up to this year's show, announcing the A12 Black HG electric guitar.

Customization and comfort is the name of the game with the company's latest offering. The Canadian-built 12-string guitar features a lightweight two-chambered Silver Leaf Maple body with Canadian Basswood Wings and a Solid Cedar top, finished in a striking high-gloss black. 

The guitar also features a maple neck with a Richlite fretboard and bridge, as well as Custom Godin onboard electronics with volume, treble, mid and bass slider controls, which allow an advanced level of tonal shaping.
