Archtop Guitars

Maple Archtop Guitars

My main goal with these 17-inch archtop guitars is to have an acoustically superior guitar, with good separation, volume projection and a classic vintage look. Top and back are handcarved and graduated in the traditional Cremona-style. Without compromise in the chosen woods and hardware, every part is a top drawer. "Stealth" volume pot is hidden behind the edge of the pickguard. Different choices are available for pickups.

Mahogany Archtop Guitars

Some old masters say that sound wise mahogany is actually better suited for archtop guitars than traditionally used maple. Obviously I can’t decide that for you. However it sounds really good to me - super sensitive, a light string tension and a fast attack. Mahogany archtops are available in the following colours; Black and Bordeaux.
