Why not spread the cost?


This beautiful classic archtop feels like an old friend. With a carved mahogany top and sides and a carved maple back, this guitar is packed full of the jazzy punch one would expect from a vintage Gibson archtop. 

This guitar is worn in perfectly and has a very authentic vintage appearance. It has a gorgeous tobacco sunburst and beautiful finish checking throughout. While this guitar was originally intended for jazz player, it would also fit right at home at an old-time jam as well and responds very well to the “Carter Scratch”. This instrument is in very good vintage condition.
