Are there any guitar companies building Archtop 7's?

I really like how archtop guitars play. Their necks just feel great to me. So I was wondering if there is anyone making 7 string archtops that are afforadable. Like, not $4000 -$5000 and preferably under $2000. This is probably a long shot but I thought I would ask. Thanks

I believe Schecter still makes the Jazz 7.

I've owned two Jazz-7's and I recorded my first CD with one. They're pretty good guitars and for the money they're great guitars. The pickups suck and most ofthem need the frets cleaned up, but given that they only sell for about $500 used, that still leaves them as great deals.

The semi-hollow that I'm making is about $2050, and while I play jazz on it, it's not archtop. Other than the Jazz 7, you're into abour $2500 for the least expensive option. Victor Baker's guitars are in that range new and occassionally they come up on Ebay for $1800 or so. LA Guitar Factory is also around that prce and I've heard very good things about them. Here's a link to their site.

I know that Ibanez had the AF207 for awhile. It's still listed as a current model on their site, but no pics are up. Not a terribly expensive guitar, but the quality was decent.
