    Excellent! It's hard to come up with an original design that actually works but you're done that. :thumb:

    I finaly got some video featuring the guitar, unfortunately the quality of the audio isnt good, some strange noise is all over.
    Guitar was played by friend, two guys made a jazz programm and played a lot of songs from old movies. Quite interesting choice of amp - Randall, bright and dynamic.

    Here comes first proper videos with my archtops, it took me a while to find jazz player and time to sit together and record some short bits and pieces. Will wait for your feedback on guitar's sound.




    some gypsy jazz rhythm:
