Default Languedoc archtop as used by Trey Anastasio of Phish

I haven't really noticed archtops until I got interested in what Trey plays, which is a Languedoc. Wondering if any of you have played such an instrument? They are expensive custom instruments, and now I want one.

Most of the curly maple used in bodies is a European variety intended for fine cellos. More exotic woods are getting harder to find consistently, but in any case, tops and backs are carved from solid book-matched plates, as any violin family instrument would be.
