Breeze is the newest our new FatBottom Archtops. We’ve shortened the body to under 12 inches and fattened up the lower bout to a full 9″. This has increased our volume and decreased the overall length. We’ve gone to a zero fret and reduced the size of our heel plate. The overall result is a more compact instrument with a lighter elegant look that has a bigger voice so it can be played acoustically as well as amplified. Enjoy!
Breeze’ lower bout is 9″ in diameter but just 2″ deep
The back ans sides are carved from a single block of Mahogany which makes it extremely rigid
Breeze uses side dot fret markers so the fretboard has a nice clean look
In this side view you can see the arched top and back as well as the cantilevered fretboard
InThis view from the neck shows the Maple floating bridge. It is not attached to the soundboard
A little Rosewood accent adds strength to the neck joint and anchors the strap button
Our new thinned down heel plate is much smaller than previous models
Beautiful Mahogany…simple, understated, elegant.
The semi-hollow construction on the back and sides allows us to sculpt the body in ways bent wood just can’t match
Breeze is equipped with a K&K Sound Twin Spot pickup
That “Fat” lower bout increases the volume of our archtops significantly
The view in one of the modified F-holes. You can tell this is Breeze because it says so right there.
We found that our archtops require significant compensation. The Bridge has a fretwire running along its top.
Breeze uses a golden zero fret and a buffalo horn nut
A gentle volute tops the neck and because of the zero fret the nut is very low
