One of our best selling guitars, the Etude is outstanding value and is perfect for beginner and intermediate players. The solid cedar top, with laminate wild cherry back and sides, has a nice satin finish and produces remarkable sound. This guitar is made in Canada and is also available in a left version. Occasionally we have SF models in stock. The SF means factory second and typically they will have a very incidental finish blemish and come with a full warranty for a little less cost. These guitars were branded La Patrie for many years and now carry the Godin name.
