    Hi,

    I'm selling this near new zimnicki 2002 Archtop. No scratches, dings, cracks repairs or issues. Lovely set up action can be lowered if required but is great as is.

    17" lower bout, 25 scale length and 1 13/16 nut so slightly wider than usual but I've had no issues adapting to it from regular archtops.
    Flamed maple back and sides solid Sitka spruce top and maple binding on neck, body, headstock and f holes. Hand carved arched top and hand carved Archtop back too.
    Comes with excellent condition hardcase.

    Zimnicki has been building instruments for over 20 years in Michigan USA. His workmanship is precise, and his instruments have a full round robust tone, and great projection. 17? lower bout, X braced, This one has a wider than 1 3/4? fretboard measuring 1 13/16? nut, 2 1/8? t the 12th fret, 25? scale, lightweight in great condition! Plenty of meat on the frets that have just been leveled, downed and polished ! In excellent condition, it almost looks new

    The two best guitars I've ever had in terms of sound is this and a Borys 120 and they both have Kent Armstrong pickups but the zimnicki sounds much better acoustically.

    The pickguard is not original and is a new bound l5 one from all parts.

    Cheers and get in touch if you have any questions

    Killer! Does it have a nitro or poly finish?

    Hi thanks for the comment. I've got no idea I'm afraid but I could contact zimnicki and ask him. It looks to be the same finish as all the other guitars Ive owned so I'm thinking nitro. Cheers

    Wow, that has a very complementary mix of Benedettoish and D'Aquistoish features, with a hint of Gibson Johnny Smith. Lovely! Really like the headstock shape.

    Hi yes it's in the uk but can post worldwide for £170 tracked and fully insured with dpd or ups. I appreciate the comments I'm also interested in trades with cash in the buyers favour for a more traditional design like Campellone, triggs, Borys, Megas Athena, trenier, ect. Cheers
