Our lightweight Eternal 'PAF Replica'-equipped T-Types have become a very popular for those looking for a versatile, tone-packed and simple instrument, perfect for all styles of music. The combination of a lightweight build, solid hardware and our open sounding PAF Replica pickups create a unique tone - both resonant and focussed that really allows the player to find their own voice to craft truly musical tones. 

Our previous versions have either leaned heavily on the early/mid ‘50s vibe and aesthetic, with maple necks and two-tone sunburst finishes, or more recently with a three-tone 'burst and a rosewood fingerboard for a more early '60s vibe.

For this latest version, I decided to have a little fun, whilst still making an awesome sounding and beautiful to play guitar. I went with a Thinline ash construction using an f-hole, and a reverse big headstock design. The neck is a slim "C" shape with 21 jumbo/Gibson size frets and pearl dots on a 9.5" radius dark rosewood 'board. The aged nitro finish is translucent Candy Apple Red, using my preferred gold basecoat with adds a lovely depth and warmth to the finish. Twin Eternal PAFs with face-mounted master vol/tone and three-way toggle switch round out the wiring. 

A hand-cut bone nut with Kluson/Gotoh hardware - including a six bent saddle bridge with through body stringing for maximum TONE - keep things simple functional and easy to maintain.

The juice is channelled through our usual CTS, CRL and Switchcraft electronic components, including 500k Linear volume and Log tone pots.
