A Stunning Archtop Born of Innovation and Tradition

Establishing a new standard in archtop excellence, crafted with a Solid Formed™ spruce top, Venetian cutaway, floating pickup, and full-sized hollowbody tone and looks.


Solid-Formed Top

Solid-Formed top from two solid pieces of spruce, formed under pressure so that the grain is not severed means booming, resonant tone. Uses 1/2 less wood.


Innovative Neck Design

Three part, two jointed neck provides strength at vulnerable points and reduces wood usage by 1/2.


Non-Intrusive Hardware & Electronics

Mini-Humbucker pickup and controls are mounted to the pickguard and all electronics are kept from the top, meaning minimal sound dampening from non-acoustic parts.


Dual-Action Truss Rod

Dual action truss rod means the ability to bow or underbow neck for setup or playing style.
