Hello all. I have cut, routed, wired and assembled electric guitars, restored and repaired acoustics, done fretwork, installed and cut nuts and so on. Most recently got ahold of an early 60’s Harmony I am doing a fret job and neck straightening on. I decided I wanted to build an Archtop and started with YouTube videos and got the Robert Benedetto book. I am sure I can do it, but would like to hear some first time experiences with the archtops or full on builds; any advice or anything is welcome!
