Description

Here we have a mint condition Andersen Emerald City 17" Archtop Guitar. This work of art is one of Steve Andersen's most ornate models, beautifully guilded with Deco Mother-of-Pearl appointments on the headstock and fingerboard and handcrafted bridge, pickguard and tailpiece. But the tone is what we are all smitten with here. Acoustically this Emerald City Archtop Guitar from Steve Andersen has a warm, rich and strong voice. It's punchy, but beautiful and clear. The Benedetto humbucker captures the full voice when amplified. It plays like a dream and has been kept in mint condition by it's original owner. This is one of the finest archtops you'll find.

I first heard this guitar when Steven was playing it in another room. I immediately walked over to see what he was playing because the sound captivate me. This Andersen Archtop has a big voice, with lots of character and richness. Chords and single line work sound amazing. Plugged in it keeps it's acoustic quality and just sings as well.
 
I love the feel of this guitar. The neck is very friendly and lends itself to all styles of playing. What a beauty.
