Archtop Guitar

Arched Top Guitar making (Archtop)

With my luthery studies (violing making) as a background the step towards hand carving an archtop was small.

This guitar was Inspired by a 50's Isana archtop guitar and Benedetto guitars.

The guitar was custom ordered and created to the specs of producer and guitarist Frederik Segers.

some meaningfull specs:

custom neck profile, Handcarved solid high grade woods,

special electronics blending passive piezo with Armstrong neck pickup, Shellac French polish finish by hand.

Maple B&S, Ebony FB with only side dots. This guitar has been liked by many local jazz guitar players and was recently (2019) played and like by Julian Lage.

Please have a look at the video to see more details about the building proces and listen to the music played on this guitar by the owner.
