This Archtop guitar has a top that isn’t carved, it’s laminated in my usual doubletop fashion utilizing a Nomex honeycomb layer in between a ~1mm spruce plate and a ~0.3mm Sono-veneer.
This way the top becomes super light ~100g. Furthermore the fibers are following the curve and aren’t ‘cut’ which should give it (in theory) an even better stiffness to weight ratio.

The tailpiece design is inspired by Ken Parker and my Logo.
The Sonowood bridge is also hollowed out in the middle.

The Harry Häussel ‘FlatJazz’ Humbucker is mounted on two rails which allow it to be slided in and out all the way to the bridge.

It is combined with a Ultra Tonic UTP V3.2-CL pickup system which allows it to be picked up seperately. The Ultra Tonic system also provides a good feedback cancellation.

This particular model is using a Sonoveneer double top which not only makes it look striking but also alters the sound to be much warmer and rounder than it’s spruce counterpart.
