Archtop #002

This instrument was completed in January 2019 and is currently for sale in Strung Out Guitars in Glasgow. I made this guitar to try and bridge the gap between flat-top and carved-top guitars. With relocating the f-holes to the upper bout, the top is able to be carved much thinner than a traditional archtop. This gives this guitar a well-balanced and bright tone.
