The New Standard Concerto Signature

15” & 16” Acoustic Archtops



This Hand Carved Standard Concerto Acoustic Archtop Serie is the latest addition to Rancourt Guitars instrument models.

We went for an elegant and subtle finish, on a very wonderful choice of tonewoods that makes for a really expressive and responsive, versatile instrument that shines in many styles of music and guitar playing. It is, like every Rancourt Guitars Archtops, completely assembled like a String Quartet Instrument and carved by hand.

The braces are Rancourt Guitars own original design, hand carved in the top to enhance the harmonic response & complexity, it’s power,  to reduce loosing vibration through glued straight joints and to give a more balance natural  tone and resonance to a wider frequency range throughout the top. It is a very well balanced & rich sounding, high-end  true Acoustic Archtop.

The result is a highly responsive instrument with a very large dynamic range and a beautiful articulate voice
