Guitarist Tim Ray liked our Gitane Nouveaux so much that he asked us to build an archtop version of the design. We all loved the result, and with his ok, we decided to make the resulting instrument available as a model, as it sounds as snappy as it looks!
Specs: Wood choices are completely custom. Our standard are flamed maple for the back and sides and the best Moon-Spruce from the Swiss alps for the top (plain or with bear-claw figure, depending on preference).
Everything that’s black is made out of ebony: Neck, body and f-hole binding, headstock faceplate, pickup cover, bridge, tailpiece, etc.
Standard pickup is a custom-made Häussel Pagelli model with volume and tone controls mounted to the pickguard (other options available).
Standard scale length is 63 mm (24.8-inches).
Almost everything is possible, and many options are at no extra charge.
