Archtop acoustic (and eventually electric)

The creation of the archtop guitar is usually credited to Orville Gibson. Violin-like sound holes, or F-holes, a curved top and back, and an adjustable bridge were among the design features that gave the archtop increased volume and tone.

Gibson found that, by making the guitar with a more cello-like body, the bridge did not exert torque on the top of the instrument, which allowed it to vibrate freely and produce a louder sound. Many top American luthiers would use the archtop as their design of choice – including John D’Angelico and Jimmy D’Aquisto. The guitar was soon adopted by jazz and country musicians and later used by big bands and swing bands.
