Archtop 17

This is a 17” Archtop based on the great Archtops of Bob Benedetto. This model has two bracing options, X-braced and Parallel bracing. The X braced model is built like a modern Archtop where players are looking for Archtop projection and, flattop sustain and warmth. The Parallel braced model is built like a traditional Archtop for the ultimate in projection and cutting power. Although it is called parallel bracing the braces are tilted towards each other so they would intersect somewhere near the headstock (if they were extended). This type of guitar is favored by the Jazz/Be-bop/ Swing musician who plays mostly rhythm.
