You know, hand carving of the top is at the threshold of the unobtainium archtops such as John Monteleone's $50,000 and above art guitars. There have been some Jazz cats who have played these instruments but "the rest of us" have to settle for a little more pedestrian, manufactured instrument. It is a little humbling to realize that the most custom, bespoke items in my guitar world are a couple of guitar straps that my wife commissioned from a leathersmith.
