Hotrod T Type No. 10-300508
Sister of No, 11 and cut from the same walnut and mahogany boards. This was my stage guitar for over 2 years, It was so right for the Chicago Blues outfit I was with at that time. Nice and light and very resonant and responsive, Had a screaming, incandescent bridge tone and the neck just roared, It ended up with a young bloke from Bendigo and like most guitars I have built I haven't seen it since.
