Josh Rouse 1972 Signature Archtop Archer Electric Guitar

This Signature Series Archer provides alt-pop/rock singer-songwriter Josh Rouse the perfect tone and feel he seeks; whether in the recording studio or performing onstage. This guitar has been road and studio-tested by Josh everywhere - from Brazil to Stockholm to Spain!Josh Rouse has the unique ability to recreate a vintage sound for a new generation of listeners. Archer’s design of this Signature guitar reflects his music, with aesthetics that reflect modern standards, but with the sound of a traditional electric archtop.

Archer created this guitar along the lines of jazz series models, providing true value at the intermediate level, while completely worthy of being played live or in the studio by any pro. Artist-series signature jazz guitars like this one typically cost a lot more!As I continue to do studio work and tour across the world I continue to rely on my guitar for the quality and sound I am looking for in an instrument.” ~ Josh Rouse
