Godin Guitars CEO Simon Godin traveled from his company’s headquarters in Quebec, Canada, to meet distributors JHS and U.K. store owners across the pond. JHS is the distributor for the full line of Godin electric and acoustic guitars in the U.K. and the republic of Ireland.

Godin’s trip included stops at Hickies Music in Reading, U.K., which has been in the music retail business since 1864 and recently began carrying Godin brands Art & Lutherie and Seagull guitars; Wunjo Guitars on London’s iconic Denmark Street; and Hobgoblin Music, also in London. Outside of the capital city, the tour included stops at Richard’s Guitars in Stratford on Avon and Reidy’s Home of Music in Lancashire.

“What a pleasure to have Simon Godin visit our store in Lancashire all the way from Canada,” said Paul Nuttall, owner of Reidy’s Home of Music. “It’s a great privilege to be able to put a face to the Godin name and get to talk to the man behind some of the best quality guitars we are seeing in the U.K. market right now.”
