Nick Branwell Small Archtop (Pre-owned)

Here we have a gorgeous little flat-backed archtop guitar from London-based luthier Nick Branwell.  Entirely handbuilt by Nick himself, this instrument is reminiscent of early Epiphone from the early 1930's (note the segmented f-holes) and similar to a Waterloo AT - though this one won't set you back nearly £5k and you won't have to wait several years.

Built in March 2022, it's in excellent condition and plays beautifully.  This is what I'd call the perfect couch guitar. A real joy to play.  

*Note the 'bullet hole' on the soundboard near the tailpiece.
