Jazz Archtop Guitar

Soma

The Soma is an (f) Hole Arch Top country guitar that has a slightly narrower tapered body than that of the Jazz, which not only projects but is very, very loud.  It has a fishman transducer bridge coupled with bronze wound strings producing a unique crisp country sound.

The main feature of this guitar and the sound that rings so clear is that I use Sequoia Redwood for the sound board.  The top and back is hand carved thicker in the middle and tapering to the sides much thinner than that of the Jazz models to create sound volume, both top and back are tuned for optimum voicing.
