The Godin Summit Classic CT is a scorching & versatile rock machine for the ages! It features a beautiful sculpted maple Carved Top (CT), an incredibly light weight & resonant chambered mahogany body, a mahogany set-neck with a bound Richlite fingerboard & headstock, large dot inlays, the Godin High-Definition Revoicer system, and Graphtech ResoMax bridge. The Summit Classic CT is powered by Seymour Duncan humbuckers.
H.D.R. High-Definition Revoicer
The H.D.R. revoices and augments the frequency range of each pickup and allows the player to go from passive to active pickups with the simple push of a button.
The H.D.R. provides extra bite, dynamic response and redefines the character of each pickup. It’s like having 2 sets of pickups in 1 guitar for 3 pure passive tones + 3 pure active tones.

I admit it: I am a huge fan of Godin guitars. Have owned many, currently own 7 (with this one). This is possibly the best guitar they have ever made. Such an amazingly balanced sound - thick and beefy, but never dark or muddy - very articulate in the low end, smooth but clear up top. I suspect the Richlite fingerboard helps with the tonal balance - like ebony, somewhere between rosewood and maple. And this gorgeous sound is is just the humbuckers.
With the help of 2 switches, you also get p-90s and single coils. The P-90s are an impressive alternative to the humbuckers. The single coils add another great texture, but it's not a Strat (it has a 24.5 inch scale, glued in mahogany neck, single cut - you get the picture - based on another guitar by another famous guitar maker starting with the letter "G"!). Super comfortable neck and body shape. The tone control is probably the most musical and useful control I've ever had - very subtle, really well thought-out range of frequency attenuation. Single coils hum a bit (they are single coils) - but they are reverse wound so middle positions are hum-cancelling - very useful, indeed.
It is lighter than a LP (I owned one may years ago, never really bonded), and has a slightly different shape (including tummy cut) which is more comfortable. With all the tonal options, however, I spend most of my time with the neck humbucker - just an amazing sound and feel. In fact, I might just go play it again after posting this review. A real pleasure to play.
