Every guitar I make is custom. These signature models are simply good jumping off points. You can order one as is or customize it and make it your own. See your custom options here.
The true brilliance of the best vintage guitars – the ones you look through hundreds to find – is that they speak the truth. They translate very subtle tonal and dynamic changes in your playing flawlessly but also “respond”. It is no passive affair, they have personality. The T-bird Standard delivers this “true” tone and personality in a modern package. It has character and depth. It oozes vibe. It can go from beautiful to what I like to call “the right kind of ugly”. The interaction of every element brings this together. Through the careful crafting and voicing of the the guitar as a whole, the instrument’s personality is maintained, its voice speaks with identity without losing versatility. The T-Bird Standard is loved by some of the best guitarists on the planet.
