Most Radical New Archtop?

August 14, 2007

What has been the most radical new archtop design within the last decade? Perhaps the Ken Parker Olive Branch archtop! Introduced last year, the Olivebranch weighs only 3,5 lbs, has a unique system for changing the action without the need to retune, aluminum tailpiece and some rather unconventional tuning pegs. Ken has posted several clipshere. The guitar sounds very much like a quality gypsy guitar; certainly more cutting and trebly than a conventional arhctop. Oh, the Olive Branch costs 30k USD.
