The Richmond Empire was introduced around 2010 and made until 2013. The Richmond Empire has a retro 70s style similar to the Ovation Viper.  The Empire features a 24 3/4 ” scale, a low noise single-coil pickup and a Custom Godin humbucker in the bridge or two Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickups (Mahogany model only). Pickups are housed in a single cutaway solid body with a silver leaf maple center and poplar wings or the solid mahogany body of the Empire mahogany HG. The pickups are controlled by separate volume and tone knobs, along with a 3-way toggle switch. The Empire’s bolt-on mahogany neck features the worn in feel of an Ergocut rosewood fingerboard for a comfortable playing experience. The Richmond Empire has high-ratio tuning machines, a chrome wraparound bridge and black or Nordic white pickguards depending on the finish. Available high gloss finishes: Black, Cream, Natural Raw (satin) or Natural Mahogany
