Our lovely "Helly" T-Type features a sumptuous, bound, quilt maple top on a semi-hollow ash body with a translucent gold finish for a beautiful blend of styles. We have a maple neck with slab rosewood ‘board, pearl dots and jumbo frets for a familiar, easy playing feel, topped with a matching gold headstock face and “butterbean” Kluson tuners.
The bridge is also a Kluson three-brass saddle unit housing a white top-flatwork “Turbo-T” single coil pickup for a warm fat output, that perfectly blends with out nickel-covered mini-humbucker in the neck.
There are volume controls for each pickup and a master tone, wired through a three-way selector switch.
