Augusta

We designed the Archtop guitar while creating a combination of the classic archtop guitars and a gypsy jazz guitar, it features the high volume of a gypsy guitar with its similar mechanics of its large body shape, tailpiece and the steel strings of a gypsy jazz guitar.

The main feature that makes it so unique is the blend between a magnetic neck pickup to a piezoelectric bridge pickup. 

This instrument can give you a variety of styles, the blended pickups can create different sounds from blues to gypsy jazz and much more.

It is light weight, comfortable to play in seating position as well as standing with a strap.

We tend to keep the traditional esthetics of the original archtop design while creating some innovative new elements in means of body structure, adjustable Gypsy style bridge, unique handmade inlays and the “Magniezo” pickups system.
