1226 Archtop (thinline)

Price : $24,365.07

Top: Halfling® carve

This thinline is simply one of the best sounding archtops to ever come out of this shop. The western red cedar top combined with the Brazilian cherry back and sides is as close to the golden ratio in resonant frequency as you can get. The tone and the sustain are beautiful. The bass is truly something surprising for an archtop let alone a thinline. Playing this will take you places you have only heard in your mind. The ease of playing and the slim body offers you an ergonomic heaven.
