Archtop guitars have developed their unique character during their evolution over the past century. They are now considered by many to be the pinnacle of guitar design.
The Metropolitan builds on the traditional qualities that make a great archtop guitar, bringing more refinement and innovation to the much-loved genre of instruments.
The styling is based on form rather than ornamentation. An example is the simple and elegant outline of Mother of Pearl which borders the fingerboard and flows into the organic lines of the headstock.
An Adjustable Three-Piece Bridge transfers the vibrations of the strings with unparalleled efficiency. The design of the bridge increases the volume while enhancing a range of overtones that are very smooth and pleasing.
The Metropolitan is an example of the next step of the evolution of the archtop guitar. We look forward to building more instruments of this design and incorporating it into our range of standard models.
