Whittemore archtops – the “Kalamazoo” models – are known for the big fat throaty sound that is the hallmark of electric jazz guitar.  Designed for amplified performance, yet with a strong acoustic presence for the wonderful amplified archtop texture.  The carved top thinline W33 model and the Barry Zweig Signature are also remarkable musical instruments for the player needing versatility.


I have been making Tele-style electrics since 1985 using the finest woods and hardware.  I am a true one man custom shop, and you will not find a better T.
