Godin has added a new model to their Shifter bass series named the Classic 4. The new model, which sports a new Crème Brulee high gloss finish, has Godin’s passive PJ pickups for a more retro style and sound.
The Shifter Classic 4 is built with a Canadian Laurentian Basswood body, rock maple neck, and either a maple or rosewood fingerboard. Its controls include a Volume knob, a Tone knob, and a 4-way pickup selector switch that toggles between bridge, neck, blend, and series configurations.
For flexibility, Godin included a double-function bridge, allowing for stringing through either the body or the bridge.
The Godin Shifter Classic 4 will be available in the coming months with a street price of around $795. For more details, check out the Godin Guitars website.
