We search long and hard here at Dream Guitars to find the best of every type of guitar for our customers. In BCKingston Guitars we have not only found you the best, but they come at a wonderful price point. This CR-E model is a worldclass 17" Archtop from Brain Kingston crafted in the highest quality at his shop in beautiful Prince Edward Island. But what our pictures can't show you is how alive and responsive this guitar is. It's amazing and it rivals any Archtop at twice the price. This should not be a surprise as Brian has over 30 years of experience building his archtops. We are truly delighted to now represent BCKingston Guitars. From Brian Kingston "The CR-E was designed to have a homogenous look. The maple bindings, part of the 3 piece maple/ebony purfling/binding setup, are cut from the same piece of wood as the sides, matching up the curl where feasible."

New BCKingston CR-E - Hollow Body Electric Archtop Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"You may not realize just how hard it is to build an archtop guitar that has an energetic top that produces a strong, beautiful voice. But take it from us, it's very difficult. But luckily not for Brian Kingston of BCKingston Guitars. In his 30+ year career it is second nature to him. This CR-E is a premiere example of what an Archtop should sound like. Acoustically it is huge and rich, plugged in it's the same only louder. Just amazing amounts of tone at a wonderful price point as well." - Paul Heumiller

"This guitar has that classic archtop tone and is very lively. The flamed maple is gorgeous and the pickup is one of the best you can get for an archtop." - Al Petteway
