Cedar Top On An Archtop

Recommended Posts

Many people use cedar as a top on acoustics; it smells very nice of course. Softer than spruce.

You're brave to try an archtop as your first guitar; if you can pull it off, then every other guitar you build will seem easy by comparison.

Not to dissuade...but I've built 4 solid bodies and done many repairs, and I still don't think I'm quite ready for the hard part of my own (partially started) archtop project.
