Instrument Shopping: The Acoustic Archtop

34

Got a little money in my pocket right now, and I've had the notion that either around my birthday in May or around Christmas 2008, I might get a new instrument.

Acoustic archtop guitars were among the loudest guitars of the pre-electric era, and I've always liked the look. I play a little bit of guitar, and I've thought about getting into swing rhythm guitar --- no solos, just nice backup for my singing.

Yesterday, I made an impulsive bid on Ebay. Having some second thoughts, just because it's a right-handed instrument, and I'd need to have it switched to a lefty, and that's some additional time and hassle. But it's a beauty.
