Electric Archie


    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.


    Over time the Electric Archie has evolved to become a Hybrid Electric Archie. ┬áThis hybrid version incorporates a deeper (2.5″) body, single pickup, and a fully carved and braced top, for a fuller acoustic tone.

    • Electronics include your choice of pickup with single volume and tone controls. Jason Lollar’s Imperial humbucker or P90 are popular choices
