#27 Richards T-type Custom Classic - privately commissioned build
We wanted a 60's vibe in this one to reflect the teenage years of the owner who was an old mate of mine and sadly passed way too early. One of natures true gentlemen RIP Richard. It is definitely a rocker with its over-wound early 50's style alnico scatter wound pickups. Wiring is standard with a treble bleed to preserve the cut as the volume is wound down. A great all round rock / blues guitar with a big meaty tone.
