The Legacy Archtop Guitar (Foster Jazz Guitars)

The Legacy archtop jazz guitar embodies the finest materials and guitar making techniques that I have acquired during my near 40 years as a luthier. We start with Museum grade quality aged tone woods and combine it with the highest level of attention to detail in terms of sound projection and tonal quality. The woods and materials chosen for this guitar are selected from my private collection. The Legacy is adorned with only the finest detailed binding and delicate abalone inlays available. The 7 piece maple/walnut laminate neck enhances the guitar’s beauty as well as its stability. A Kent Armstrong floating humbucker pickup with volume and tone controls are included.
