A Blackwood and Sitka archtop

I’ve recently finished building this Blackwood and Sitka spruce full bodied archtop, and presented it to the customer, who by all accounts is a very happy customer [ see testimonials ]. The instrument has Blackwood B/S, Sitka spruce top, X bracing, Maple and Purple heart neck, with Eucalyptus burl headstock, Green and white purfling and curly maple body binding, Ebony fretboard, a Kent Armstrong hand wound floating humbucker has been fitted. The instrument has been finished in nitrocellulose lacquer featuring a tobacco burst to the top and a tobacco highlight to the recurve on the back.
