Tim Bram is a revered archtop luthier, based in Maryland. Tim has developed an archtop design that blends the best qualities of both a traditional fully hollow, carved-top Archtop and a smaller bodied thinline "ES style" guitar.

The lower bout of this model is only 14.6 inch but it sounds huge both unplugged or amplified with its single floating hand-wound Kent Armstrong Mini-Humbucker Pickup. The body somewhat resembles a Tele as does the six in a row tuner head stock, hence the name "Tribute Archtop" as a tribute to the Tele. This version of the Tribute Archtop is finished in a warm Caramel finish.

Acoustically this Tribute Archtop model is open and rich sounding with complex highs, beautifully balanced mids and a nice punchy low-end. Both acoustically or plugged in this guitar can cover so much musical ground with just its single pickup and the volume and tone controls which are mounted underneath the ebony pickguard. All in all this is a heirloom quality master Luthier built Archtop Guitar at its finest; with a unique design, and a perfect setup.

This Tribute only has some playwear on the top and back of the body, but still looks very clean. It is in excellent condition and comes in a hardshell case.

*The guitar in this demo is not this specific guitar, instead, it is a different Tribute Archtop*
