I am an acoustic guy... came to archtop with a plain Godin 5th Avenue, I keep as a practice guitar and got a Loar LH-700.

Godin produces a bunch of differently electified (different pickups arrangements and matches) archtops
based on the 5th Avenue, including the Montreal line.

Loar produces many, but their higest, solid woods, are 600 and 700.
They have and electrified 650, but with V neck as I remember.
They were inspired from the Gibson L-4 designed by Loar !

Eastman AR 610 and AR 805 got good comments on this forum.

In addition, you can add a floating pickup to electrify any plain archtop.
Needed some nylons, a wide range of acoustics and some weirdos to be happy...
