Each archtop guitar I've made has been unique.  Just as with my flattops, I'm inspired by the works of those whom I consider to be the old masters... Gibson, Loar, Stromberg, Epiphone, D'Angelico, D'Aquisto and on.  For me there is a great sense of creative freedom in carving the archtop guitar, tempered by humility and respect to the work I aim to live up to.  
   These are your grand-daddy's archtops, with the volume, the punch, and the character enabling it to keep up with a full band, while still allowing deep personal satisfaction when played gently.  Available with a traditional adjustable bridge and metal tailpiece, or hand crafted wood and brass hardware.
