The Godin or La Patrie Motif takes its compact dimensions from turn-of-the-century parlour guitars. The compact body of the Motif suggests a ¾ size instrument but this is a full-scale length guitar with a reduced body size. There is more to the compact body style of the Motif than comfort, this is a serious guitar with many of the same features that professional guitarists look for in the best handcrafted instruments.
The solid cedar top, Canadian wild cherry back and sides and Custom Polished finish ensure that this guitar will not only sound great when you first receive it but will actually become better sounding with playing over time.
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.
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.
