This Andersen Emerald City in flamed maple and engelmann spruce is an absolutely wonderful instrument. Pre-owned and in mint condition, this beautiful Arch Top has just arrived at our London showroom and boy oh boy are we pleased about it.

Steve Andersen has been highly respected in the archtop world for many years and judging by this beautiful ornate Emerald City Archtop Guitar you can see why. Beautifully gilded with Deco Mother-of-Pearl appointments on the headstock and fingerboard and handcrafted bridge, pickguard, and tailpiece this guitar should be in an art gallery as much as it should be on stage. However, it is the tone that really sets it apart! Acoustically this Emerald City Archtop has a warm, rich and strong voice. It is beautifully clear but packs a real punch. 

Borrowing its moniker from a popular nickname for Seattle, the Emerald City is among the most ornate of the Andersen archtop guitars. It’s curvaceous lines are stylistically inspired by the Art Deco movement of the early 1900’s. Careful attention to detail and timeless elegance combine to make the Emerald City an object of beauty, as well as a remarkable sounding guitar.

Fitted with a Benedetto humbucker, really manages to capture the full voice when amplified. She plays like a dream and has been kept in fabulous condition by its original owner. This is one archtop not to be missed.
