Archtop Guitar

Natura Handmade Archtop Guitars

Classy. Refined. Elegant.


I own three Tom Bills guitars, and they are the best handcrafted instruments I have ever played. For comparison, I also own a 1973 D’Aquisto New Yorker, 1946 D’Angelico New Yorker, Benedetto Cremona, Benedetto Pregio, Gibson L5 and a Gibson Super 5.
