“Jelly Bean” Archtop Guitar

Artist Series

The "Jelly Bean"  17" Archtop Guitar

Custom Hand Crafted Left-Handed Archtop Guitar

Great gigging guitar!  This guitar was designed with a solid wood Bigleaf Maple top, back, and sides.  The top has been thinned to maximize the vibrational properties of the wood which produces clear, vibrant highs, mids, and low range frequencies while maintaining the high flame of the maple.  The soundhole has been offset which helps the artist hear the music very clearly.  Hardshell case included.
