A new shape developed in the workshop based on the traditional T style guitar. It started with a router grab and me hurling against the wall :-O Came back the next day, trimmed off the whiskery bits and I had a pretty nice looking body design. It's lighter and more comfortable than the standard shape being contoured. great tone from the Blues Specials by Mike Brierley. The sound is sweet and warm with a bright jangly edge. It would suit just about any genre of music except hardcore or metal.
