  • Looking to buy an archtop acoustic..

    but don't know much about what's out there. What should I look into if I want something decent for cheap(ish)?

      Honestly, i would recommend this, however, when i bought mine, 1 drop on carpet and the guitar's binding had exploded entirely. It's highly compressed laminate as the body wood.
      yep

        The Godin 5th Avenue is a one of the few newer guitars that really caught my attention. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find one that was set up worth two ****************s at GC. They do look beautiful, though.

        Don't rule out the old Harmony/Kay/etc archtops, which can usually be found for around $200, but don't be surprised if it needs some work to get it playable. I have a 1940 Harmony archtop that sounds lovely, but the neck has been giving me some issues lately. I attempted reseting the neck a few months ago and the neck more or less just fell apart in the process, which I was kind of expecting but was hoping it wouldn't be the case. Once I get around to getting another fretboard for it, I should be able to get it back up and running.

                I personally really want a The Loar guitar, I've got my eye on a LH-700. They're not too expensive and look gorgeous:

                      IF you can find a decent playing old Airline or one of those old off brands they're awesome and cheap. Hard to find them without warped necks though.
                      Good deals with: TravvyBear, TD Moyer, modeerf, starmansam, dyer_maker, Reaganomics!, frenchji
