1950’s Archtop with filigree rose soundhole – £399

NEW ARRIVAL  This is a very unusual looking archtop, with a filigree rose soundhole, beautifully inlaid rosette, and multi bound top and back. To be honest I was drawn to it because of the looks, but it plays really well, with very low action and a chunky neck. It has a full tone, quite deep, with plenty of attack. It works well with all types of blues and jazz, and would be a really eye catching guitar on stage.
