The Venetian Cutaway archtop guitar has curly European maple back and sides, a curly maple neck and a European spruce soundboard. Both the top and the back are carved solid wood. The accent wood is African blackwood and the inlays are black mother of pearl and gold mother of pearl block markers. This guitar has Gotoh gold tuning machines with Keystone buttons. It has parallel bracing for a more traditional construction and greater projection. This guitar now has a hand wound Kent Armstrong suspended pickup. The pickup attaches to the finger rest and does not touch the soundboard. A volume and tone control is tucked under the finger rest to keep it handy and discreet.
