“The Improv is a 15″ archtop guitar that comes in two versions. One version has a neck pickup only and is a beautiful guitar for Jazz. The other version is a two humbucker model, which works very well for Jazz or for the Blues guitarist looking for a big sound.
Unlike my Thinline Archtops, the Improv does not have my integral sound posts or cavities to house the pickups and reduce feedback. The Improv is a fullblown archtop, with a true acoustic voice.”
