“The telecaster is the Stradivarius of electric guitars”
– Danny Gatton
Lightweight swamp ash teles are the king of solid body guitars, capable of any musical style from old timey, to rockabilly, to dark smokey jazz, grunge or a musical style not yet conceived. So simple — standing the test of time for more than 60 years. Everybody needs as swamp ash T.
The finest hand crafted T-style guitar that you will find. I have been doing this since 1985 and have a hard time with the “custom shop” definition used by the big factories. This is a real custom shop, with 35 years of experience. You will not be disappointed!
