Our Recent Correspondents: I found the archtop.com experience to be most interesting and quite painless. You have established an excellent guitar adoption agency and I look forward to our next adventure. Bruce Reynolds, Guam
Joe, I received the Bennedetto/Gibson in good order in a timely fashion.  This piece is absolutely delightful!   I am in a mode of my collecting years whereby I require an instrument to be historically important (either in its design, rarity and or in its place in the universe of guitar changes, but also an unmistakable player.  This guitar fills that bill and more so.  Thanks so much! Cary Porter, Alamo, CA

Slong for now, Jonathan Lee, LA, CA
