C.R. Alsip Guitars Unveils the SC Carved Top

A new take on an iconic single-cut archtop.

Dallas, GA (December 6, 2018) -- The SC Carved Top is our take on the iconic single-cut archtop everyone is familiar with. We started there and added refinements and adjustments that address the shortcomings of the original, such as headstock angle. We then implemented enhancements such as our patent-pending SES system and routing the body to give the stop tailpiece a lower profile putting less tension on the bridge for easier playability.
