Overview

From the classic archtop curves of the body, to the vintage Bigsby vibrato tailpiece, to the distinctive "rivets" front and back, there is simply no other guitar like the chrome Normandy Archtop guitar.

Normandy's rosewood-on-maple neck id shaped close to what you would find on an old-school jazz guitar”not too fat¦ not too thin. The resonant, chromed aircraft-grade aluminum body produces smooth, warm tones that ring true and long. Sustain is increased significantly when compared to that of a conventional wooden guitar body. Normandy "old school" humbuckers with Alnico 5 magnets are overwound to 12K ohms for higher output, powerful midrange and driving tone.

This is a deceptively solid piece of instrument. You may be able to snap the neck, but the body will stand up to the most aggressive punk-inspired outbursts. The Normandy archtop guitar weighs 8.6 lb. which is roughly the same (or less) than most other electric guitars. I maintains perfect balance when on a strap and is so comfortable that you'll play longer and better.

The sound, the look, the feel, the durability and all the extra care taken to perfect this one-of-a-kind guitar, combined with state-of-the-art manufacturing processes equal a guitar that you would expect to cost thousands more than it does.

Normandy guitars are quality made one at a time and are built to stand the test of time from one gig to the next.
