Well folks, here's a video of a mid-60s archtop (Harmony built?) with a Truetone label that I converted over into a mandocello. 26" scale length, big, big tone. Needed a neck reset but that went along just dandy. Unwound As as I didn't have light enough wound strings to work it on hand.

Nice, Jake,
Very nice tone as you said. I'd like to see some pictures of this instrument if you have them. Is it for sale?

Sounds lovely. Love the painted flamed top. You've rescued another.

Thanks fellas! It's definitely a fun instrument. I have an evil temptation to hack at all the archtops I have in the store right now. :)

Bill: PMed you.
