A beautiful archtop. This dual pickup model shows the craftsmanship and attention to detail that Pete is known for. Even the pickup rings are hand made!
PW 90 Hybrid in Tobacco Burst
The best of both worlds. An 'old school' look with modern versatility. The PW 90 boasts a 'Tele' style pickup in the neck position and an under bridge acoustic piezo too! Go from great 'plugged in' acoustic sound to a sweet tele electric sound with a turn of the blend control. The soundport is a great addition to the instrument that lets the player hear the guitar with a fuller bass response. Remember that all aspects are customisable.
Many players prefer this 'old school' look with the versatility of a built in acoustic pickup and telecaster neck pick-up.

Warm sunburst finish
