Well, I’ve wanted a 17” archtop for a while. I had two to choose from, a ‘41 L7 and the one I went with, a ‘47 Triumph. I put some new strings on it and recorded this clip with my iPhone this morning at 6:30am before work. The audio obviously could be better but through headphones or good speakers it does give a decent feel for the tone of the guitar. I have been looking for a 30s-40s Archtop, it had to parallel braced and long scale and I couldn’t afford an L5,10, or 12 so that left me with the 7 and I might be able to find a Deluxe I could afford but I didn’t see any. My local shop just got in 7 killer arch tops and this Triumph was one and an L7. The Triumph was better sounding in a huge way and it was way less $ so now it’s mine.
