One-off 7-string acoustic with massive 23"-wide lower body bout
Here's what the eBay seller describes as a 7-String Non Archtop Acoustic Guitar, as if to suggest that archtop 7-string acoustics are reasonably commonplace. It is apparently a one-off luthier-built instrument, its most astonishing feature being that the lower boust is a mammoth 23" in width, which is longer than the scale length of certain classic guitars. The seller claims that the guitar fits comfortably on the lap; I'd imagine that with a body width like that the bass response would be fantastic.

Item is located in Hamden, Connecticut, United States, and is currently being offered for sale on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $375.
