Euro Archtop Vendors — Cont’d

Nicolai Foss

June 6 I posted on Guitare Village. Although GV has a nice jazz guitar section, they are by no means a match for Amsterdam-based Palm Guitars. Palm Guitars has what may be the top selection in Europe of classic vintage archtops. The site is a bit unorganized and some of the instruments seem a bit over-priced (compared to buying on US ebay and adjusting for transport and taxes). For example, almost 4000 Euros for a Gibson L7 seems excessive. But there are many real beauties there, as well as some wonderfully crazy examples of lutherie (in particular, check out the Loyd Loar design at the bottom of the page).
