Default Fabric covered ARF ?

Hi does any know of any fabric covered ARF in a
60 size or a little larger.

Default RE: Fabric covered ARF ?

You probably won't find any ARf covered in traditional fabric. The cost is too great, and the time involved in turning out an acceptable finish is just too great. Covering with fabric and dope is extremely labor intensive, and therefore, you probably will not get one. Why not try an ARC version, and do it yourself, or if the ARC is not available, strip an ARF, and re-cover it yourself. Be advised, you will probably need to do some reglueing, and reinforcing of the ARF framework, unless it is one of the high priced, high quality versions. Not a put-down of the ARF, but a statement of fact.
