Rialto

Inspiration for this new guitar came from the classic American archtop designs from the early 1920’s


Body width at lower bout is 412mm (16.2″) x 514mm (20.25″) long x 86mm (3.4″) deep overall. Scale length is 632mm (24.9″) and the nut width is 44mm (1.73″).
Wood choice, bracing, front/back graduation, and body tuning all combine to give this guitar a warm solid vintage tone and response.
