Just a point of interest Paul McCartney's first guitar was a Zenith Archtop which I'm led to believe (I read all things Beatles)
He still has in his collection.
I may have missed this somewhere but Bill do you still own yours?

Sadly, no, I don't. My dad sold it after he'd bought me my first electric guitar, (an Antoria,) many, many years ago in my early teens.

That's a rather nice design...haven't seen that one before. My Antoria was more of a Fender Jaguar shape, but had the same grey plastic pickup switches as the white one for sale. You can see a photo' of me holding the guitar in 'The Cosmonauts' band when I was a schoolboy if you look through the 'Bill's bands' section of this website...
