Archtop guitar (detail)

Handcrafted archtop guitar made by Andersen Stringed Instruments, a luthier based in Seattle, Washington. This guitar is an archtop with a warmer sound than the traditional archtop. The oval soundhole gives the guitar more sustain than the f-hole top. It has the projection and power of a good archtop, with the harmonic complexity and sustain more common to the flattop. This makes the guitar very versatile whether played with a flatpick or fingertips, fast or slow, loud or soft. The overall design of the instrument is intended to make the guitar as lightweight and resonant as possible. The only binding is a single strip of rosewood around the top and back of the body.
