2001 Ted Megas Athena Left Handed 7 String Archtop Guitar

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Megas Athena is one of a line of custom archtop guitars built by Ted Megas in Portland, Oregon. Like many other custom builders, Megas was long interested in guitar music, playing in various bands around the United States and working other woodworking jobs as necessary. Eventually, he stumbled on a copy of Donald Brosnac’s book, ‘The Electric Guitar – Its History and Construction’. This led directly to experiments in building instruments, and finally to an exclusive focus on archtop guitars.

Built during 2001 as a left handed model, this Ted Megas Athena is in excellent condition. It features a solid hand-carved spruce top, hand carved quilted maple back, quilted maple sides and a flame maple neck with bound ebony fingerboard. Ebony is also used for the bridge, pickguard, tailpiece and headplate. Tuners are gold Schallers and the pickup is a floating Kent Armstrong model.

This instrument is in exceptional condition and comes with the original Calton case.
