Folk guitars are the perfect shape for players that like an instrument that is comfortable to play, but is not lacking in fidelity. Built in Quebec by Godin, the Simon & Patrick Showcase Folk is a high quality all solid wood guitar that brings top line performance at a very reasonable price.

The Simon & Patrick Showcase Folk features:
Featuring all solid wood construction and Godin’s specially formulated thin high gloss finish, the Showcase series is the top of the Simon & Patrick line. Attractive but understated, the Showcase Folk uses only top quality materials for broadest frequency response, volume and resonance. Rosewood is considered the "premier" wood for acoustic guitars and is known for both its strong low end and clear detailed highs.
With the advent of very high quality aftermarket pickups and built-in electronics, the necessity of having a big bodied-acoustic has become less important, and the popularity of smaller bodied guitars has grown. The folk guitar shape has a mildly scooped waist provides enough midrange support to give the guitar a reasonably full-bodied sound with good projection. Somewhere between the more sparkly Concert and a booming Dreadnought, folk guitars have a balanced tone that makes a great accompanying instrument.
For singer-songwriters, porch players and coffeehouse veterans who want a top-line guitar in a compact package, the Simon & Patrick Showcase Folk is a compelling proposition. And for a solid wood guitar with TRIC case, an excellent value.
