Do you get along with them and what'cha got? I've always had an affinity for archtops. Most of the ones I've had though have been modern ones, though a couple of years ago I picked up a '49 Epiphone Zenith. It's a fun guitar to play. I just picked up about a month ago a '61 Guild CE100. Never owned a Guild archtop before, but it was a good deal and I've been looking for a 175 type guitar for a while. Didn't want to fork out for a 50's 175. This is clean and all original. The Franz pickups are quite unique.
