2014 Douglas Harrison GB Thinline Archtop Guitar

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Douglas Harrison GB has become very popular with jazz guitarists seeking a custom built thinline archtop guitar. Originally designed and named for Toronto jazz player Gary Benson, the GB uses a single cutaway, 14.25 inch wide thinline body with an carved spruce top and a chambered or, as with this instrument, fully hollow back.

This example dates to 2014 and its hollow back is made of bookmatched flame maple. The three-piece neck is made from the same maple, and has a bound macassar, 25 inch scale ebony fingerboard. The headplate, bridge and tailpiece are also macassar ebony. For electronics, a bartolini pickup is mounted under the fingerboard and there is a single volume and tone control; the tone control uses a push / pull pot to do a coil split. Frets are stainless steel. The finish is lacquer, and the maple neck and back have a dark stain under the clear coats.

This guitar is in very good, clean condition and comes with the original Armitage hardshell case.
