Earlier Versions

Variations

These models are examples of various movements toward  final models that represent the originals more accurately, but with a touch of "PHIGA". I no longer build the T1 or T2. Prices for custom-jobs are vary slightly as to hardware and electronics and specifics. I accept checks and Paypal. I only take orders for these guitars at the (1/2 down) beginning or end ( I sometimes make make extras) of a run. The next official "Run" will begin middle of January 1st 2013.
The ultimate credit for these inspired designs go to Doug Irwin, a genius extraordinaire.
