Godin has announced the Radium electric guitar, which combines elements of the company’s Radiator and Stadium models into a new single-cut design.

The Radium boasts a short-scale (24 3/4 inches) set-neck with a 3&3 headstock design, as well as a “reinvented,” vintage-style control plate with volume and push-pull tone knobs and an angled Super five-way switch.

The Winchester Brown-finished Radium features a mahogany center with Canadian Laurentian basswood wings and a mahogany neck. Pickups are Custom Godin Nickel-Covered humbuckers at the neck and bridge, with a Godin Custom Cajun Nickel single coil in the middle positions.

The Carbon Black model, meanwhile, sports a Canadian Laurentian basswood body with a Silver Leaf maple neck. Pickups are Godin Zebra humbuckers at the neck and bridge, with a Godin Custom Cajun Nickel single coil in the middle position.

The Radium is available in Carbon Black for $749, and in Winchester Brown for $799.
