Model T01

The T01 is my take on a classic Telecaster. The body shape is exactly Tele and the headstock is my take on a 70s style deluxe headstock. The difference in craftsmanship, feel and quality between this and your average Tele is night and day. The neck joint is a very uniqe, strong and toneful set neck with no bolts to be found. The premium Mastery bridges complement the quality and materials of this guitar perfectly. This is a completely handcrafted heirloom quality Telecaster that is both classic/traditional and completely unique/original at the same time.

Ships in a Mono M80 Sleeve.

  • Neck Carve: There are five neck carve options listed below. The measurements listed are thickness specs from the top of the fretboard to the backside of the neck at both the first fret and the 12th fret. These necks, like most all guitar necks, gradually taper to a thicker profile as you approach the 12th fret. All of these necks are traditional C profiles. Ask about any other shape such as a D, V, etc or any custom measurements and it shouldn't be a problem to carve for you!

    • Fattest Vintage No Taper C Profile: 1.00" thick
    • Extra Fat Vintage C Profile: .920" at the 1st fret to 1.00" at the 12th
    • 59' C Profle: .860" at 1st fret tapered to .960" at 12th
    • Medium C Profile: .830" at 1st fret tapered to .920" at 12th
    • SlimTaper C Profile: .800" at 1st fret tapered to .875" at 12th

  • Bridge:

  • Nut Width:
    • 1.700" standard. Or nut width of your choice.

  • Nut Material:
    • GraphTech TUSQ XL. I highly recommend this GraphTech material as it improves tuning stability and has fantastic tone. It is more expensive than bone. I use it because I believe it to be superior than bone and worth the cost.

  • Scale Length:
    • 24.75" is my standard and is found widely in the guitar industry. We can of course also do any other scale length such as the popular longer 25.5", etc. We can also do baritone scale lengths or anything custom.

  • Finish: Below are two nitrocellulose lacquer finish options followed by color choices.

    • Open Grain Satin
      This is a thin satin nitrocellulose finish that has a very natural, beautiful and minimalist look/feel and is well protective. The natural wood grain is left unfilled and can be felt by hand. No extra charge for this finish.

    • Closed Top Grain Satin
      This finish is very much like the above listed "Open Grain Satin" finish with the exception that the top wood and headstock face are mirror flat with filled grain. The back, sides and neck remain open grain satin. Add $100 for this finish.

    • Color options: Any of the following colors are possible!

      Natural, Sunburst, Vintage Amber, Cherry Red, TV Yellow, Arctic White, Candy Apple Red, Blonde, Butterscotch Blonde, Butterscotch, Black, Copper Tone Metallic, Daphne Blue, Dakota Red, Desert Tan '55, Desert Tan '59, Fiesta Red, Ice Blue Metallic, Inca Silver, Lake Placid Blue Metallic, Mary Kaye White, Ocean Turquoise, Olympic White, Shell Pink, Sea Foam Green, Sherwood Green, Shoreline Gold Metallic, Sonic Blue, Surf Green, Vintage Cream, Midnight Wine, Gold Top Gold, Pelham Blue, Cadillac Green, ReRanch Coral, Gorilla Vanilla, ReRanch Orange, Orang Orange, Crown Royal Purple, Smoke Green
