Our T Bone is a re-creation of the best a ‘50’s or ‘60’s vintage T style guitar has to offer, then more. This is a custom order unique to Guitar Brothers.
Each body is built and detailed by hand. Each neck is hand shaped. Then we lay on the thinnest possible nitrocellulose lacquer finish and that finish is then weather checked. This creates a very airy, open, articulate tone that is then enhanced by our own, LsL hand-wound pickups.
This is as close as you can get to achieving the tone, playability, look and feel of a vintage guitar. Our T Bones have found their way into the hands of many a player who has replaced their 50s vintage instrument with our own. The best materials, best processes and a love and care for each guitar is what makes the T Bone the new standard in vintage-style instruments. We make them all for ourselves but then we have to sell them.
The Bad Bone has a higher output, hand wound bridge pickup, our hand wound P90 in the neck, and a hand cut, 3 saddle bridge - it’s shorter but otherwise the same as our standard T Bones. The bridge pickup is mounted in a pickup ring and the neck pickup is mounted directly into the wood as with our Bad Bone 1, so there are no pickup adjustment screws visible on the pickguard.
All of our T Styles are tone monsters. Their pickups sing and are very touch responsive. They shine brightest in their higher gain applications where they cut through without piercing.
