    Definitely a Gizmo!

    I check the local (PNW) craigslist everyday to pique my archtop curiosity, and this thing appears in the Portland list. I think it would be perfect for a heavy metal jazz band, whatever that would be. Not my shtick! hollow-bodied aluminum Archtop

    Normandy Guitars are history. They offered them with a lifetime warranty. Ask the seller if it transfers.

    I would definitely avoid playing that baby outdoors. Or on synthetic fibers. Might be nice for slide, but I suspect my Dobro would look askance.

    Hey 2B! You got that right! I'm not going to find what I'm after on CL. It would be like looking for a long term relationship in a dive bar!
    And, The archtop offerings are not quite the same as years past. Especially since you've been gone from posting.
    Typically junk like this one is about it. Although there is a decent 125, and I saw a 135 recently. But, not in that market.
    Just bored.

    Hey that's about 20 miles from me. Almost bizarre enough to take a look. Might pay $25 for it to hang it on the wall ... for laughs.
