Early 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 vary slightly as to hardware, electronics and specifics. I accept checks and Paypal. I take half-down for custom-made guitars at the beginning of a run. The guitars I build for general sale,
can be found HERE. The next official "Run" will begin middle of
January 1st 2018. My prices haven't changed in 7 years!!!
The ultimate credit for these inspired designs go to Doug Irwin, a genius extraordinaire.
