Description

Simply Stunning Custom Quat-Not-Troport Archtop by Bill Moll. This very special guitar is one of a kind and is based on John Monteleone's Quattroport design. Outstanding workmanship and incredible tone that has attributes of a Fine Archtop and Flattop and is equally at home playing straight ahead Jazz or Fingerstyle Blues. Excellent volume and clarity thanks to the three extra sound ports on the bass side of the body and the stunningly flamed Bigleaf Maple back and sides and Adirondack Spruce top. There is also a Piezo pickup built in. The tailpiece, fingerboard and pickguard are each crafted from figured Macassar Ebony in stunning detail. Superbly playable, this instrument is an attention-getter.

This is outstanding! A very versatile Archtop that is so musical and responsive it can handle just about any style. This is a not a one-trick-pony. Yes, it's an amazing Jazz box, but it had a real acoustic quality that makes it excel at blues and rags as well. One client put it in DADGAD and it was amazing. So, if you are seeking a full sounding acoustic archtop that can cover a lot of ground. This is it.
 
This is one of the best sounding archtops I've played. It has some really unique appointments and really pumps out the volume.
