Contempo Archtop
16" Session Archtop

Model Contempo
The Contempo Model archtop draws its inspiration from the great archtop guitars of the mid-20th Century with some decidedly 21st Century additions. The Lehmann archtop is constructed as a solo style guitar or as a rhythm  style instrument. The solo style has an “X” braced top that tends to make the tone sweet and lyrical. The parallel braced rhythm style guitar provides the punch and centered tone for improved projection. Both models are fitted with ebony tailpieces and pickguards.

  • Curly maple sides, back and neck
  • AAA grade spruce soundboard
  • Ebony fingerboard, bridge, tailpiece and pickguard
  • Multi-laminate plastic body bindings
  • Pearl dot position marker inlays
  • Nickel- or chrome-plated Schaller tuners
  • Antique amber finish
  • Hard shell case

BASE PRICE 17” Contempo Model $5,200
