Description

Get classic tone filled with clarity, presence and more than a little attitude with this Godin 5th Avenue CW Kingpin II guitar. The cutaway body design makes this instrument attractive onstage, and the two Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickups vibrate beautifully for the traditional sound you desire. Built like a classic 1950s-era archtop, this vintage-inspired guitar offers the best of both worlds with reliably modern playability. This means more projection and volume in the low/mids than traditional instruments at an affordable price point that belies the guitar's sophistication.

No matter your genre from alt-country, Delta blues and slide to alt-rock, pop and jazz, the Godin 5th Avenue CW Kingpin II has you covered with a versatile design great for both acoustic and electrical play. Durable construction from Canadian wild cherry makes this guitar tough and beautiful, and the adjustable bridge ensures easy use by most musicians. The classic F-holes, contoured high-gloss headstock, floating pickguard and cream binding offer the ideal finishing touches to this exceptionally well-built instrument completed with a polish reminiscent of 19th-century French polishes.

Store Information

THE HISTORY OF MANNYS

When you shop at Mannys you don’t just get the gear, you get the knowledge and expertise of 25 years of experience as one of Australia’s most influential independent music retailers.

In the beginning…

After managing the Allan’s city store for 10 years, an ambitious Manny Gauci-Seddon decided to open his own music store. He wanted his shop to uphold the values of true support and after-sales service, and to form genuine ongoing relationships with his customer base. The trends of the industry at that time were pointing to more of a disposable, corporate mentality and so in the early years he set out to make a name for himself as a serious independent alternative.

The first store was a funky shop in Smith Street, Collingwood in 1991. By 1998 Manny had outgrown this store and saw the need to focus more on the upcoming computer based recording revolution. He established an address in Johnson St Fitzroy as the arts were booming on the north side of the city. In the same year the opportunity came to acquire a business on Chapel St – the Revolver Music Gallery. With a two store operation Manny was now making the difference he set out to 7 years earlier. The Mannys brand was known for knowledge and service, with the staff greatly sought after for their experience. Unlike the other major players, the focus was not just on sales but also on the process of making music.

When the opportunity came to consolidate into one superstore, the North Fitzroy address seemed perfect for the move. Manny wanted to expand his customer base to include more of the musicians turning to the internet due to the lacklustre service of his competitors. He took the best from both stores and moved his operation to the hub of music and musicians just north of the city.

In November 2016 Mannys was sold to SoundBay Pty Ltd, the operator of Australia’s largest DJ and production retailer, Store DJ. While the essence of Mannys Music will always exist, our mission for Mannys Music moving forward is to ensure that we continue to build the ultimate experience for our customers online or in store. Our sales staff remain knowledgeable, professional musicians first and sales people second. Mannys Music gives you one hub to purchase all of your gear, and if we don’t have it, we’ll try our hardest to get it for you.

Mannys – The best advice you can give a musician.
