The electronics have been upgraded, too, for this year with a new EPM-designed under-saddle pickup, while the small Q1T side-mounted preamp offers a tuner plus volume, and treble and bass controls, sadly without centre detents.

Nut width measures 43.62mm with string spacing at the bridge at 55mm. The Folk's neck is less tapered depth-wise (21mm at the 1st fret, 23.5mm at the 9th) than the recently-released S6 and has subtly fuller shoulders - enough to make you prefer one over the other.


Fretting from a small-ish gauge wire is tidy and smooth-topped, plus the fingerboard edges are slightly rounded - something rarely found at this price point. The preamps' tuner displays the note and has flat/ sharp/in-tune indication; it's fast and accurate.


What's special about the Folk is quite a unique voice, the combination of those laminated wild cherry back and sides, which, says Godin, has "a sound that lands somewhere betweenthe mellow tone of a mahogany guitar and the bright sound of maple", with their cedar tops plus a robust but pretty light build.
