 Product Description

GODIN Empire Mahogany with Bag

The Godin Richmond Empire has a retro style and attitude all its own and it packs a tonal "punch" that won't hurt your wallet!  

The Empire features a 24 3/4 ” scale, a low noise single-coil pickup and a Custom Godin humbucker in the bridge. 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 an incredibly comfortable playing experience. These retro rockets are finished off with high-ratio tuning machines, a chrome wraparound bridge and black or Nordic white pickguards depending on the finish.

In no event shall COLE CLARK be liable for any indirect, incidental, or consequential damages, including but not limited to time, wages, or lost business or profits of any nature or kind or for damages to or loss of property, or damages resulting from use or performance of the guitar.

This warranty is the sole warranty of COLE CLARK. There are no other warranties, express or implied, including any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for purpose. This warranty shall be controlling over any conflicting terms and conditions of any purchase orders, contracts or invoices which may be executed in connection with the purchase of the COLE CLARK guitar. No representation or warranty made by any COLE CLARK salesperson, dealer, agent, representative or employee shall be binding upon COLE CLARK other than as set forth herein.

By following these instructions and the instructions on the COLE CLARK website, you will protect your guitar. This information is available at: www.coleclarkguitars.com/fag.asp ‘Care and Maintenance’

COLE CLARK does not recommend the use of silicon based wood polish on the guitar’s finish. The guitar’s finish is thin nitrocellulose which enhances the guitar’s acoustic performance. To clean use sparing amounts of water on a warm soft cloth. Use a small amount of mild soap if necessary.

COLE CLARK recognizes that the standard set-up of the guitar’s action may not suit the personal preferences of all players. COLE CLARK advises that modifications to personal tastes, preferences or playing styles is the responsibility of the purchaser and that action adjustment should be carried out be by those experienced and authorised to do so and such adjustment may limit the application of the warranty provided for herein.

The ‘M3 cap screws’ on either side of the saddle secure the pickup/piezo set. These caps screws do not adjust the saddle height/action. Do not alter or adjust these screws. Doing so will limit the application of the warranty provided for herein.

Generally, the guitar is best stored in the room in which you are comfortable.

Your guitar is constructed from solid wood. Solid wood will absorb moisture in wet climates and release moisture in dry climates. If you live in a desert, high mountain, or cold winter region, you will experience dry weather from time to time that may crack or split your guitar. Prolonged exposure to high temperatures may have a similar effect. This damage can be prevented by using a humidifier or de-humidifier as necessary. If you are unsure about humidity, please contact our Service Department for a more detailed explanation. Strong hot direct sunlight may also be damaging to the guitar and will ‘yellow’ or oxidise the wood timber. If the guitar’s finish is exposed to perspiration where ‘aluminium based’ deodorants are used, some colour contamination may occur in the form of ‘blackening’ or ‘greying’.

Excessive humidity may cause some bulging of the back and soundboard: A higher action may result. A return to normal conditions generally results in the normalizing of the instrument’s action, soundboard and back. Exposure to prolonged periods of excessive humidity is not covered by your warranty.

Avoid prolonged exposure to low humidity; 50 percent relative humidity is optimal. Use a humidifier during periods of low humidity. Cracking or splitting due to low humidity is not covered by your warranty.


Claims for warranty performance and service shall be made by sending or delivering the guitar, shipping and insurance prepaid by the purchaser to an authorized COLE CLARK dealer or authorized COLE CLARK warranty repair center together with (a) evidence confirming the original purchase by purchaser (such as a copy of the sales invoice, receipt, or credit card slip); (b) a brief description of the nature of the asserted defect; and (c) the name, address and phone number of the original purchaser to whom the guitar is to be returned. The authorized COLE CLARK dealer or authorized COLE CLARK warranty repair center shall review the description of the asserted defect, examine the guitar, and make service, repairs and replacements as appropriate under this warranty. Upon completion of the service, the guitar shall be returned to the original purchaser, shipping and insurance to be paid by the purchaser. In the event it is determined that the asserted defect is not covered by or is excluded from this warranty, the guitar shall be returned without repairs or replacement, shipping and insurance to be paid by the purchaser.


Depending upon the state or province in which you reside, you may have additional legal remedies available under the applicable Commercial Code, Consumer Protection or Consumer Warranty laws.
