Archtops at Fat Dawg’s Subway Guitars

Yesterday I blogged on those old Harmonies and Kays (and Silvertones, Sherwoods, Regals, Armstrongs, etc. etc.) and why they aren’t (if indeed they aren’t) used more by professionals. Well, perhaps it is both a quality and an aesthetic issue — i.e., these guitars are frankly often both crappy and ugly.

BUT … check out Fat Dawg’s Subway Guitars. It is pretty amazing what the Fat Dawg can do to these old archtops. That Harmony L4-C is just beautiful! And what about the Sherwood? Incredible what a good polish, a quality pick-up, new tailpiece and tuners, etc. can do to an old time, cheapo archtop.
