    Introduced at NAMM with George Gruhn checking her out, it's a OO sized archtop...don't have any more info, do you? Guessing its a flat rosewood back, but maybe someone who went to NAMM show can fill us in.

    Uh oh... if there's one thing that grabs my attention it's a small-bodied archtop. Give it a round soundhole and my wallet starts burning a hole in my pocket.

    Would love to check out the 14 1/4" AT. Have a 01 maple 12 string that kicks for it's size; amazing what the boys in Austin can do with a small body.

    That is nice. It looks like George has been working on his C chord.

    Amazing guitar - so resonant and refined feeling. I also played their new Waterloo 00 - both were great guitars. Not sure on price was afraid to ask and didn't even look at the card... :) Was just so happy to play it!

    I'd be very interested if they added a small archtop to the Waterloo line with a solid, bent top.

    There is going to be a small Waterloo archtop.
