Custom T in Cocobolo Rainforest Green
One of our best selling models, our Custom T is part of our Classic Series and pays homage to a time-honored winner filled with boutique touches you'd never see out of a factory. Every one of these features a one of a kind, hand-mixed finish.
These are built both on spec - like this one - and to order, completely from scratch. We do everything in-house, and use no CNC. This is old world craftsmanship at its finest! If you have something you envision, call or message us for a build template. Check our website for past builds, videos, more specs and special deals.
Our 3-piece laminated neck back provides a FAR superior sustain and evenness of tone than a single piece of wood. This is touched off by 3mm side dots and 6mm fret marker in genuine mother of pearl and green abalone. The core body and neck back are done in a hand-mixed stain that is wiped on top of two different highlight colors, and in person it "moves" in the light. This features a stunning 5A bookmatched cocobolo top paired with a one-piece choice Louisiana swamp ash core body and a Madagascar Rosewood fingerboard. The semi-hollow body, with a bound F hole done in ivoroid binding to match the top binding make this truly playable art.
Lollar Special T bridge paired with my favorite tele mod, a Lollar P-90 in the neck. This gives you a very crisp sound and precise attack, with a lovely warmth and definition in the neck position. Gotoh vintage tuning machines and the incomparable Callaham compensated vintage tele bridge, the usual high end electronics with CTS pots, Switchcraft jack, Oak-Grigsby 3 way lever switch, vintage cloth covered wire, our special shielding for dead silent running on stage or in the studio, a hand cut bone nut and immaculate setup to your preference.
This guitar comes with a hardshell case and free shipping to lower 48 (call us for overseas shipping), all for a measly $3850.00.
This is an amazing instrument. The difference and quality between this and a factory "custom shop" are night and day.

This instrument features a hand cut bone nut and professional setup. If this ships to another climate, just like any instrument you buy anywhere, it needs to acclimate to your climate before it settles in. We do all our own fretwork, and we dress and level the frets so it plays better than anything you can buy in a store. We also will do adjustments to the buyer's preference. We don't have to do this, we do it so you get the highest level of satisfaction from us. We let our instruments sit for a week so they can settle in, then do another setup after that, as well as play the instruments to make sure they are perfect. If you favor an unusual string height or spacing, it is YOUR responsibility to take it to your local tech to do this unless you ask us ahead of time to do it for you. Product will be professionally packaged and insured. No returns unless unit is not as specified. We only sell top quality items. This is no exception. Payment is expected upon purchase. Happy shopping! And remember - if you didn't have music, what would you do?
