Phil Secrist is a luthier of high quality guitars based in Northern Utah. His custom guitars are the finest I have ever played. Phil is the kind of guy who measures twice and then measures again and then cuts. Great care and detail went into the construction of this guitar and I am proud to own it. The guitar is 100% hand-carved and the tap tone sings. This is the loudest archtop I have ever played. It is perfectly suited for all types of Jazz guitar (including gypsy). Phil installed a Kent Armstrong pickup on the neck which is simple and elegant in its construction. I can vary my tone greatly by tweaking the volumes of my amp and my pickup respectively. The asthetics of the guitar are breathtaking. A gorgeous figured maple body is enriched with a honey blonde finish and accentuated by an ebony tailpiece, pickguard, fingerboard, headstock, and bindings.
