So nice to have my Vintage Levin Archtop back after after it's visit to the Luthier.
A new bone Top nut was installed and further successful work on the neck means
that the instrument is back to being played!
Each time that i pick it up and play it i can feel the history of this Guitar and the warm Acoustic tone and sustain has improved considerably.
Originally known as an Orchestra Guitar, this instrument is perfect for Swing and Jazz and has an an authentic sound that is unique and well suited to classic ballad Jazz songs and 1940's Swing.
The Flat wound Thomastik 10 gauge strings suit the smooth and comfortable neck.
At a later point i will record a video of this instrument in action, check back in to hear.
