Designed to 'bridge the gap' between our Paris models and standard electric basses, the Archtop is a new direction in bass instruments.The undersaddle pickup, blending smoothly with the Citron magnetic pickup, covers all the territory from straight-ahead electric tones to crisp, acoustic-like sounds (and upright-like fretless tones), and every flavor in-between.
The thick, gracefully carved solid Spruce top, large body chamber, and soundhole maximize the tone, look and feel of these elegant instruments, which are beautifully suited to jazz players, acoustic music, and intimate ensemble playing.
A 24-fret neck and deep treble-side cutaway give the player full access to two-octaves of range, and the rugged construction and stability of all our instruments makes for worry-free travel and gigging, without sacrificing the rich tone and vibe of a truly high-class instrument.
