GOING DUTCH

Dutch Archtop Guitar Museum #1 3-17Benedetto is on display at the Dutch Archtop Guitar Museum!

If I had virtually unlimited funds, I would still collect and share fretted instruments with the world in the form of a museum rather than a retail store and would have a staff every bit as big for display, restoration, and educational outreach. – George Gruhn

CALIFORNIA CUSTOM

S2393 16B OB Custom_FC2_SamKaufmann_032317This custom order Californian-bound 16B features our rich Opulent Brown finish, honey blonde maple binding, ebony nut and black hardware throughout.

The 16B has become our most accessible hand-carved archtop aimed at professional players who demand the responsiveness of solid spruce top and maple back, but save with less costly aesthetics that favor less translucent finishes. The 16B (16″ X 2-1/2″ w/built in A6 pickup) starts at $10K, and can be customized like this one with several optional appointments.
