Default Show Your Archtop Some Love!

Whether you've got a vintage heirloom or a less expensive workhorse, let's see your archtops and hear about how you use them!

Here's my Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin, resting up between takes. I bought a Tune-O-Matic bridge for when I use an unwound G-string; otherwise I use the stock TUSQ version. The single P-90 is sublime -- it can nail the rolled-off-trebles jazz tone and some lowdown greazy blues grit with equal aplomb.

Not sure why, but the archtop's F-hole design is visually very appealing to me -- the tone is just icing on the cake!

Let's see yours!
