ELECTRIC ARCHIE STANDARD
The Electric Archie is available in two versions. The original version is a result of Bill Frisell’s interest in a guitar that would work as an all around traveling and recording guitar. Based on the standard Little Archie, which Bill also helped design, this takes a big step towards being an electric guitar while maintaining certain acoustic aspects. It has a carved top and back like a traditional archtop, but the top has been left full thickness in the center to provide a solid platform for the pickups. See the photo at lower right below. Please contact me for specs on this model.
ELECTRIC ARCHIE HYBRID
Over time the Electric Archie has evolved to become a Hybrid Electric Archie. This hybrid version incorporates a deeper (2.5″) body, single pickup, and a fully carved and braced top, for a fuller acoustic tone.
Standard features for the Electric Archie Hybrid (shown at left):
- Electronics include your choice of pickup with single volume and tone controls. Jason Lollar’s Imperial humbucker or P90 are popular choices
- Waverly tuners
