Czech archtop

This was bought at an auction in Ö-vik and passed the premises. An unusual Czech archtop, Alfred Bräuer Cremona, from around 1955. Probably model 465a. Beautiful details and shape of this.

Warmed the neck straight, lacquered on spirit lacquer, strapped on and adjusted it. The latter went like a dance as the angle of the neck can be easily adjusted with the help of a wrench on a screw placed in the neck foot. An ingenious construction where the neck only rests against the upper part of the neck pocket with the screw just below. The stable is also adjustable, you can choose and wreck between different turning angles over the stable and string height over the fretboard! Pure luxury.

Does not sound unexpectedly like an archtop with hard attack and very strict in sound.
