Godin Guitars presents the Alex Lifeson Signature. The Limelight is a tribute to Lifeson’s Hentor Sportscaster that he used during the time of the Rush album Moving Pictures.

Update

[February 15, 2024] The two models are now officially available in stores*. Unfortunately, the price is high, which is no surprise.

Godin Lerxst Alex Lifeson Signature

This Godin Lerxst Alex Lifeson Signature is the latest model and follows on from the recent signature amp range that was released at the tail end of 2023. It is built using a swamp ash body and has a maple neck with a 12-inch radius ebony fretboard, 22 medium stainless steel frets, and a classic 25.5-inch scale length. It has a cream finish and a black pickguard, so looks quite minimal aesthetically.

HSS setup and two tremolo options

This signature comes as an HSS model with a Lerxst Mojotone Humbucker and two Mojotone Lerxst Single Coils as pickups. There is also a volume control and a tone control, plus a three-way switch.

On the Godin Guitars website, you will notice that there are two versions of the Alex Lifeson Signature model. One model comes with a Floyd Rose Tremolo system and a matching Floyd Rose Locking Nut. The second model comes instead with a Vega Trem and matching 18:1 locking tuners.

Both iterations will be solid in tuning stability terms, just I suspect the feel will be a little different for each one. But great to have a choice of trem system on a signature model and quite unusual.

How much does the Alex Lifeson Signature cost?

The Limelight costs 3,999 dollars and can be pre-ordered on the Godin Guitars website. The two mentioned Tremolo models do not differ in price. Again, this is a bonus, though both models are already pretty expensive.
