"Shrimp" the '56 PAF T-Type

"Shrimp" the '56 PAF T-Type


Our latest "PAF Replica T-Type" in a classic mid-50s style.

    Our lightweight Eternal "PAF Replica" equipped T-Type guitars are perfect for those looking for a versatile, tone-packed and simple instrument to cover a wide variety of musical styles. The combination of a lightweight build, solid hardware and our open-sounding "PAF Replica" pickups create a unique tone - both resonant and focussed that allows the player to find their authentic voice. 

    This is our first PAF T-Type for 2024 so I decided to do something a little different and use a mid-‘50s vibe and aesthetic with a two-tone ‘burst and a white pickguard. 

    The body is solid lightweight ash and once again we've used a sleek, soft-V-shaped one-piece maple neck. The body is finished in aged two-tone sunburst nitro with the neck and fingerboard aged to mimic decades of use but the comfortable profile and carve, aided by a vintage correct 7.25” radius and jumbo frets make for effortless playability.

    Elsewhere we have Gotoh hardware with split-post tuners and a chopped ashtray bridge with three compensated brass saddles. Electronics are our usual top-notch CTS brass collar pots, a CRL three-way selector switch and a Switchcraft jack-socket in an “electrosocket” to ensure trouble-free jack life.
