Because it'd be wildly embarrassing if someone else showed up to band practice with the same hot-rod-flamed Double Neck Flying V, build your own custom hand-wrought axe instead with TL Guitars, run by an Andover-based former tour tech who credits his crafting mastery to "time spent loitering" in guitar shops, meaning presumably he's also super familiar with the "Stairway to Heaven" intro. Ready your imagination/ C#m7 fingering for
The Model R
This "fingerstyle" acoustic features a dovetail multi-lam neck, genuine bone nut and saddle, and Gotoh Delta Series tuners. Up-to-you options include soundboard wood (western red cedar, Engelmann spruce, or sitka spruce), tonewood (Indian rosewood, bubinga, African ribbon stripe mahogany, or sapele), and Abalone or Mother of Pearl fret markers, also known as mezuzahs
The Model E
Inspired by TL's "favorite commercially made electric guitars and modern custom bass builders", this hair-metal hatchet features seven-piece mahogany or maple outer cores with Ebony or Rosewood fingerboards and Gotoh Delta mini tuners. Get fancy/ individualized by choosing a Flamed Maple or Quilt top, and then adding custom blocks, dots, or inlays, aka Khloe Kardashian's away message while going on a day-long bender inside a giant bag of Fritos
Embodying their notion of what "the ultimate guitar could be", these ultra-customizable models come with high-end appointments like additional neck, core, binding, and side lamination, gold hardware and Ebony accents, and master-grade "top woods", or, what just about every scratch golfer on the planet is managing to do these days
For the DIY axe-maker, they've also just launched the "School at TL Guitars", which offers multi-session classes in acoustic and electric construction, as well as basic and advanced design, jiggery, and tooling, which you'll already feel quite adept at should your bass player also have decided to go with the sunburst hollow-body.
