Hand Carved Arch Top Guitars

Bob Gernandt has had a long time passion for jazz music and the "jazz guitar". Coupled with his expertise and enjoyment of wood carving, it was inevitable that the Luthier would offer archtop acoustic and electric guitars.

Archtop guitars have evolved greatly since their beginning. Gernandt is following this evolutionary trend, refining the design, making it more suitable to more varied playing styles.
