Possibly the finest modern archtop guitar maker! 17" cutaway body, fully hand-made and hand carved in Warrnambool, Australia by the supreme master of carved-top mandolins. Woods are Adirondack spruce and sugar maple, with a hand applied spirit varnish finish in the Gibson-inspired Cremona sunburst, and very light X-bracing. The headstock and fingerboard have Gilchrist's unique chevron mother of pearl inlay. The tone of this masterpiece is super responsive, rich and full with an open, sweet and clear treble that is seldom heard in arch-top guitars.
