Every guitarist is perpetually looking for the "Holy Grail" chasing great fat tone, articulation, chordal note separation, and feedback resistance. This guitar is a combination of a "hollowed out" solid body with rounded sides and a carved arched top, going beyond traditional archtops, beyond chambered bodies, while still maintaining the beauty of most of the functionality of an F hole archtop. This is the best sounding non- traditional archtop that has ever been in our shop, with the warm tone, clarity and chordal note separation only found in a traditional carved traditional archtop.
