Does anyone have sound clips of the comparison between a flathead woodie and archtop woodie?

There is a thread going right now from someone who makes both kinds.

I have no archtops setup but I can share a formula that has really worked well.
Maple with Fijian mahogany top layer. I have not tried in open back yet but with the resonator off it sounds great.
Machining the inside gave more volume and tone making it more playable up the neck. It seemed to unlock the range for a woodie

I also always follow the prewar tone ring curve on top of rim now. My first models were a sharper thinner edge
