The Passion Series has always been synonymous with Robert Godin’s devotion to high design standards and build quality, and the new generation of Passion guitars carries that sense of prestige even further with new aesthetics and even more refined characteristics.
The Passion RG-3 Indigo Burst MN comes with a beautiful, transparent indigo blue finish, which is contrasted by an artic white perloid pickguard that complements the body’s sleek silhouette.
The maple fretboard provides defined note clarity with a tight bass response for players seeking articulate and precise tones. The swamp ash body balances out the brightness of the maple neck for a smoother and warmer tone while enhancing sustain.
The guitar is outfitted with Lace Hot Gold single coil pickups for less noise and more harmonic richness compared to traditional single coils, not to mention the trusty Godin Tru-Loc for whammy flutters and acrobatics while maintaining tuning stability.

The Instrument's Family
Robert Godin began making guitars in rural Quebec out of a passion for music and craftsmanship. His dedication to quality and ingenuity has allowed Godin to become one of North America’s largest guitar manufacturers. They have always provided players around the world with guitars that are unique, diverse, and effortlessly enjoyable.
46 years later, that same passion drives the next generation of Godin Guitars by Robert’s two sons, Simon and Patrick. Their current guitars continue to evolve and shake up the industry through modern designs, thoughtful refinement and a commitment to handwork.
Godin guitars are unique because from forest to stage, they are North American. The necks and bodies are all made in their original location in La Patrie, Quebec. Godin Guitars are then assembled in their Quebec and New Hampshire factories.
Keeping the process close to home means that Godin experts and designers can ensure the highest quality with a personal touch. From fretting to sanding, there is more handwork in Godin guitars than you will find in most custom shops.
Godin strives to consistently provide top-quality guitars which honor the finest traditions of lutherie, while continually refining the process through their innovative designs.
These instruments make it easy for any musician to learn, develop, and most importantly enjoy their musical abilities. Whether strumming on your front porch, or playing a sold-out show, these guitars will deliver rich, resonant, unparalleled sound in any setting.
