So many beautiful instruments. I congratulate the owners and admire their taste and the artistry of the builders.

My own arch-top is a modestly featured instrument but it also logs a lot of studio hours. It is my main studio guitar.

I can get very tight, crisp no-sustain single-note lead scales out of it or because of its depth and its short, fat F-holes,
it can give me warm, wide chords full of tremolo and reverb in the same song.

DEPTH F:holes

But y'all sure have some gorgeous arch-tops, out of my league.
Ceci n'est pas une pipe bebe.
