Exceptionally fine acoustic archtop guitar from Vermont based luthier, Joseph Campanella.

This is the first 17" archtop we have seen from the Campanella workshop; if you're familiar with his violin-style mandolin construction, you know what you're in store for herein.

This guitar's acoustic sound is wide open and warm with excellent complexity and roundness of tone. Amplified, those same characteristics come through the speaker. This would be a uniquely satisfying instrument for any seasoned jazz musician.

Overall condition is as new (this is a pre-owned instrument, but it's barely been played and exhibits the same condition it would if we were receiving it newly constructed).

Priced with custom-made Hoffee carbon fiber case. On consignment.
