17" Custom Archtop By Artisan Archtops - $2750

Photo for Ad 150747

As a small artist shop located in the Pacific Northwest, I build Archtops and Mandolins one at a time.
This post is for one of my 17" Archtop - Elly series - #004

Hand carved, book matched Engelman Spruce top.
Hand carved, book matched Curly Maple back with matching Curly Maple sides, both feature GORGEOUS flame details.
Ebony profiling added to the top and bottom cut away to enhance wrap around contouring.
Custom Curly Maple single piece bridge with bone caps to e and b strings. Height at the 12th fret is approximately 1/16th for all strings. (I choose to make custom single piece bridges, as I find they resonate and carry better tone than standard adjustable ebony types).
Custom accent sound holes with black binding.
Parallel tone bars.
Three piece, adjustable Maple and Cheery neck.
Curley Maple head with Black Trim & MOP Artisan Archtop Logo.
Schaller M-6 Mini Gold tuners.
Medium gauge D'Addario Phosphor Bronze strings.
Ebony fret board.
25.125" string length.
1 15/16th" bone nut. (this is the same width as a classical guitar).
Gypsy Jazz Tailpiece. The tailpiece does not define the sound as Gypsy Jazz - I like the format of this style and it works well to give stable rigidity without dampening the tone like the traditional suspended ebony tailpieces.
Black binding.
Hand rubbed Honey Blonde Behlen lacquer finish.
Comes with TLK plush lined hard case.
Tone is smooth with clean voice and range.
Very playable for all types of music styles.
Working on a video.. soon.
Priced at $2750 - 3 day approval.
