When our customers asked for an instrument with all the tone and playability of our Classic T Antique, without the antiquing, we listened, and delivered two great eras of Classic T goodness.
50s Spec: 2-piece Swamp Ash body with Maple fingerboard on a Maple neck, Trans finishes (2-Tone Burst, Trans Butterscotch or Trans White), and single-ply pickguard (Black Bakelite or White).
60s Spec: 2-piece Alder body with a Rosewood fingerboard on a Maple neck, Finishes (3-Tone Burst, Black or Olympic White), and a 3-Ply Parchment pickguard.
One of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960s, is grown all over the world. Alder is medium to light in weight with soft tight pores. It has a light tan color and can sometimes exhibit large swirling grain patterns and rings. Alder is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows. Alder is used extensively for guitar bodies because of its light weight and its full sound.
Being one of the most popular fingerboard woods for guitars, Indian Rosewood is usually sourced from either India or Bangladesh. It has a thick grain pattern with colors ranging from brown-black, purple, to red-brown. Indian Rosewood is particularly favored by blues and rock players for it’s thick, sweet tone. It has an ideal balance of fat lows, warm mids and a sparkling high end presence.
