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 - #005
Hand carved, book matched Western Red Cedar top.
Hand carved, book matched Ambrosia Maple back, very unique patterning and highlights, accented with a serpentine Ebony inlay.
Curly Maple 4” tall sides featuring GORGEOUS flame details.
Ebony profiling added to the top cut away to enhance wrap around contouring.
Adjustable Ebony bridge.
Custom accent non-symmetrical sound holes with black binding (reinforced).
The combination of Red Cedar top + 4” tall sides + off-set sound holes brings out a very detailed voice with crisp lows and bell-like highs.
Parallel tone bars.
One piece, adjustable Maple neck finished in high gloss black.
Zekotia head with MOP Artisan Archtop Logo.
Schaller M-6 Mini Black tuners.
Medium gauge D'Addario Phosphor Bronze strings.
Ebony fret board.
25.125" string length.
1.75” bone nut.
Gypsy Jazz Tailpiece. (Tailpiece does not dictate the sound to a Gypsy Jazz style - I like these tailpieces for there rigidity and the stability it adds to the voice).
Hand rubbed Honey Blonde Behlen lacquer finish.
Comes with TLK plush lined hard case.
Note - as the archtop has settled in, I have noticed 2-3 hairline cracks appearing to the finish. This is due to spraying late in the season and the lacquer setting up to fast. Cosmetic only.
Priced at $2750 - 3 day approval.
