Should I look for an older vintage guitar or just go ahead and buy a modern one?
Please suggest specific manufacturers and models if you have any?
Thanks for any advice!
Mac,
The Gibson archtops from the early to late 1930ís are plentiful and perfectly suited for the genre.

Look at L-30, L-37, L-50, L-75, L-4, and others. Many have flat backs and are close to L-00 size.

Happy hunting!

Howard
