* 1999 was the twenty fifth anniversary of my first arch top guitar. To commemorate this milestone, I designed a 25th Anniversary model arch top guitar. Due to continued interest in this guitar, I have continued to produce this model.

** The 35th Anniversary model is a very organically designed guitar aesthetically. It is available in highly figured Hawaiian koa carved back and sides. Koa imparts a uniquely sweet, woody tone to the guitar. I think of the 400+ archtop guitars I have made, some of the sweetest, clearest sounding instruments have been constructed out of koa.

*** 40th Anniversary Model – This archtop is one that I feel is the pinnacle of my arch top designs. The 40th Anniversary model has an asymmetrical guitar body with the treble-side waist shifted slightly to the tail end. The body has two “soft” points in the upper bout – one on the bass-side cutaway, and one on the treble-side cutaway. Please see the “Pescatore” design in “Limited Editions” for the body outline. Also I have more photos and details about this guitar available on request.

The Anniversary Models are constructed of very select woods that I have collected and saved over the years for the masterpiece guitars. No-charge options include custom “Color-Burst” finish and simple inlay (such as a name). For more information, please inquire. Amertiage Platinum hardshell case included, pickup optional.

**** Designed in collaboration with Larry Coryell.
