The Godin or La Patrie Etude is the most popular model in the lineup. It is truly everything that a student might look for in a good guitar. The Etude’s specs match those of the Motif but with a full size body.
The Etude has a solid cedar top with laminated wild cherry back and sides. This entry model has the same bracing pattern as the more expensive models. And at this price level, the sound is really good.
Incredibly responsive thanks to the feather-light Custom Polished finish, this guitar features great dynamic range along with the harmonically rich sound that you usually find in a guitar several times the price - this thinner finish makes for a cleaner sound, unlike thicker coatings which can dampen the tone somewhat.
La Patrie guitars feature a 24″ radiused fretboard for easier planting of the fingers, and a double-function truss rod system allowing for adjustments to the neck profile ensuring a guitar with greater stability and a longer lifespan.
The Godin EPM Quantum IT acoustic guitar system is simple in design and outstanding in performance. In combination with the transducer, the EQ control range and frequency content have been specifically contoured to provide a very rich and full sound reproduction resulting in performance seen only in far more complex systems. Features volume, treble and bass controls as well as a built-in tuner with auto shut-off.
Note: This guitar was built before Godin moved all La Patrie guitars under the Godin brand name, so this guitar does not feature the signature logo on the headstock as per the photos. The specifications and built quality are identical.
