The line has changed some over the last couple of years with a few models with different features added but the current Montreal Premier HG has a MAP of $1595. They have SD pickups now. I got mine a couple of years ago for right at 1K, new. That was when they had Godin branded G&B pickups (which I really like and have had no desire to swap out). For a Godin guitar to be sold as a "blemish" (they call it SF) doesn't take much at all so they pop up often enough. That's how I got mine. It was flawless other than the clear poly (or whatever they use) was applied a touch too heavy on the front side of the headstock.
