MODELS
The Emerald
Semi hollow archtop with a 15 inch lower bout and a 2.5 inch body depth. Laminated spruce top with 3 piece 25 inch scale neck, sides, and laminated back of flamed maple. This particular guitar is shown in blonde finish with optional Bigsby vibrato, mini humbuckers, Imperial tuners, pearloid pickguard and trussrod cover, and trapeziod fingerboard inlays. This is a good guitar for the player who likes a small body and likes to play at loud volumes, while still maintaining the look and feel of a traditional archtop.
Starting at $1999.00
The Emperor
Acoustic hollow body archtop with a 17 inch lower bout and a 3 inch body depth. Handcarved top is sitka spruce and the 3 piece 25 inch scale neck, sides, and handcarved back are flamed maple. This guitar is shown in cherry sunburst finish with optional wood tailpiece, Schaller gold tuners with ebony buttons, thumbnail fingerboard inlays, mini humbuckers, 3 way switch, and separate volume and tone controls. Although the headstock veneer, fingerboard, tailpiece, and pickguard are rosewood on this particular guitar, most customers prefer the look and feel of ebony.
Starting at $3499.00
The Continental
The Continental is identical to the Emperor, except for the body size (the lower bout measures 18 inches, while the body depth remains at 3 inches. Some customers prefer a 4 inch body depth with this body style, however it is my opinion that a 3 inch depth produces a more balanced tone. This guitar is shown in optional aged blonde finish, ebony tailpiece, gold Schaller tuners with ebony buttons, suspended Kent Armstrong humbucking pickup with volume control, Super 400 fingerboard inlays, and Carpathian elm burl veneers on the headstock, pickguard, and tailpiece. 
Starting at $3699.00
The Persephone
This is currently my most affordable hollowbody archtop guitar. It features a laminated spruce top, a laminated maple back, low flame maple sides, a 3 piece neck, and Schaller tuners. This is the ideal archtop for the gigging musician who will subject his instrument to the rigors of the road. If you would like to own the very first Persephone, it is still available. It has all of the features stated above, plus a floating pickup with volume control, and an ebony tailpiece. This is one of the very few of my guitars with a natural finish.
Starting at $1999.00
I will be introducing a few other models in the coming months, including a 16 inch archtop, a semi hollowbody based on the Gretsch DuoJet, and a semi hollowbody based on the Gibson 335. Stay tuned!!
