Handcrafted archtop guitar made by Andersen Stringed Instruments, a luthier based in Seattle, Washington.

Developed in collaboration with vintage guitar enthusiasts John G. Stewart and K. C. Wait, this is an archtop steeped in the New York City school of guitarmaking – yet designed with the modern player in mind. The Andersen Metropolitan is an inspiring instrument, whether being played purely as an acoustic instrument to drive a rhythm section, or playing single-note melody lines.

Construction details include hand-engraved mother of pearl inlays, ivoroid binding around the body, f-holes, neck and peghead, and the most highly figured domestic maple for back, sides and neck.

Standard features:
Engelmann spruce top
Highest grade domestic figured maple
“Imperial” style mother of pearl tuner buttons
3″ body depth
Scale length: 25.4″
Schaller tuners
Body Width: 17″
