This is probably a long shot, but I am looking for a Radiotone Archtop.

Here is one in the Gryphon Strings archive...

Anybody know where I might be able to find one of these?

Can't help you, and I also can't promise that if I find one I won't buy it for myself. That looks absolutely AMAZING.

Thanks for the eye candy. Good luck in your search.

That one on the Gryphon site seems to have been converted to bronze/steel strings. They were originally sold with nylon/gut strings. I found this video of one in action:

It reminds me of some ukuleles that I read about on Fleamarket years ago. They were being made by a French builder, I think. Unfortunately, I can't find the original thread. Have you tried contacting Gryphon to see if they kept any information?
