I’d say play one before you make any comparisons and or judgements. These are an entity unto themselves. I’ve owned quite a few old arch tops. They come with their own set of issues.

As for torrified tops, that’s a question for Collings. However carving torrified billets has its own issues, including sourcing wood.

Thanks for that. Modern archtops sometimes get away from the straight-braced vibe that gave the old ones their unique sound.

Curiosity might lead me to find one here in the Phoenix area and give a play.
