"Polina" the Obeche T-Type

"Polina" the Obeche T-Type


Blending some the best of best vintage-inspired tones available with a modern feel and stunning aesthetics. 

“Polina” is a loud and proud blend of different styles in one stunning package. Beginning with a contoured T-Type body carved from lightweight and resonant Obeche (which has the best tonal qualities of ash and Korina but with a very stable weight) coated in a double finish: a full three-tone sunburst lies beneath the striking and vibrant Lake Placid Blue - all aged to taste.

A body this traffic-stopping needed a neck to match so I went with a reverse big headstock S-Type neck with a matching Lake Placid Blue face. The neck is a comfy, wide nut C-shaped carve topped with a meaty slab of rosewood and medium/jumbo frets to make effortless work of the 9.5” radius. Pearl dot markers light the way…

Gotoh split-post tuners and a three-brass saddle ashtray bridge anchor the strings. For the juice, I chose our high-output, midrange-biased “T90” bridge pickup, mated with one of our A2 magnet PAF Replica low-wind humbuckers in the neck to offer the best of both LP and T-Type tones, but putting this one firmly in the ROCK end of the tonal spectrum. Choose between the pickups via a three-way toggle on the the upper bout Gibson style, and tame them with the master volume and tone controls set in a familiar S-Type position with the volume knob nestled just beneath the bridge for those volume swell moments.… a hand-cut bone nut and the usual top-notch CTS and Switchcraft electronic components round out the spec.

The overall feel is best described as enhanced-vintage and the combination of a lightweight build, solid hardware and our open vintage inspired pickups create a unique tone - both resonant and focussed that really allows the player to find their own voice to craft truly musical tones. And importantly look THIS GOOD when doing so.
