By Art Thompson Godin’s “short” 24 3/4"-scale guitars, such as the Flat Five, Flat Five X, LG, and Radiator are noted for their fast-playing 24-fret necks—a design detail that provides more frets clear of the body, but also places the front pickup outside the sweet zone of the 24th-fret harmonic. As this configuration can negatively affect the quality of tones delivered by the neck pickup, a number of players have expressed a desire for a 22-fret model from Godin, which has now been realized with the introduction of the new Exit 22 ($495 retail; deluxe gig bag included). I tested both the maple- and rosewood-fretboard versions through a variety of amps, including Ibanez Tone Blaster and Randall RM-100 half stacks, a Bad Cat Hot Cat 15, and a Fender reissue 4x10 Bassman.
