ROMA Archtop Jazz Guitar


Fantastic archtop from the late 40's/early 50's, very likely Germany. Don't bother Googling it, you won't find it -- it was probably made in a private shop, essentially one of a kind. The bridge, tailpiece and body work appear to be a Hoyer -- you can tell from the distinctive tailpiece and tortoise shell celluloid binding -- photos don't do it justice - the binding is pure art deco.


Laminate maple back, deep and wide grain Solid spruce top with some extensive but attractive crazing in the finish only.  Full 17" lower bout.


The incredible neck is not original -- but it is very beautiful hard maple (with hardwood skunk stripe) with very old but perfect condition Grover Imperials. I can only guess when the neck and the pickguard were added but clearly this guitar was a labor of love - headstock lettering is handpainted. The pickguard (with celluloid binding) and pick-up cover are handmade from maple -- pup is hot, mini-humbucker of unknown origin -- a Kent Armstrong mini would sing with the open voice this guitar has. Beautiful Art Deco volume knob. This was probably a straight acoustic orchestra guitar -- the unplugged tone is big and woody, plugged in through Polytone or Evans, it is truly sweet. New Benson Thomastik 12's on it now.  Comes with a new SBK hardshell case
