Archtop Jazz Guitars
                                    by Mike McHugh

              This line of guitars is inspired by the Gibson L5
               of the early to mid 1900's.  

               Mike makes these classic guitars with steel strings
               but also has made some smaller versions with
               nylon strings.

               An archtop is a hand carved on both on top and bottom
                voiced by the luthier to resonante a woody, rich tone.

               Mike's personal preference is a 25" scale, however,
               the scale is the player's personal choice

               The goal is to produce a guitar that is effortless to play
                and makes a player reluctant to put it down.
