Hi, I've made one with a few modifications from your plans. It has a quilted maple top and back, walnut sides and a birds-eye/walnut neck. Sounds great. Much more volume acoustically than I had anticipated, and warm, mellow tone with a Kent Armstrong pickup. I have a few suggestions on the plans if you are into feedback.

How do you feel about me making something like these to sell? I'm just a beginner luthier (two Benedetto style archtops) but I've been a professional woodworker for 20 years. You can check out my work at my very-out-of-date website, I'm not talking mass productions here, and I may never do it, but just wanted to know how you feel.
Thanks for the ideas.
