Hand made guitars & mandolins by Gary Nava, Luthier | firstname.lastname@example.org
Because this guitar has a hand carved archtop which is combined with a standard braced rosewood back and sides.
Because this guitar can be played acoustically or amplified and great care has been taken in its design so that the electric components do not compromise the acoustic sound. The humbucking pick-up and its volume and tone controls are mounted so that they do not interfere with the vibrations of the top plate, hence allowing for a true acoustic sound.
Unlike most archtops, the hybridís bridge does not have thumb screw height adjusters; I feel this mechanism interferes with the transfer of vibrations from the saddle to the top plate.
