17" Archtop "Blonde"

This 17" archtop is European Maple and Spruce with macassar ebony appointments. Gold Gotoh tuners and gold plated hardware complete the package.

Mike Klar met this "Blonde" at my table during the 2006 Newport Guitar Festival. I later fitted it with a Kent Armstrong floating pickup.

"I thank you again for creating such a great guitar. It sings beautifully and is simply gorgeous to behold. It is admired by all that see it."
