Asher T-Deluxe Dog Hair



"My passion for restoring and building instruments began in 1982. I have worked for numerous artists who have shaped and inspired the guitars I build today. My designs offer the revered tones and iconic vibe found in great vintage instruments, coupled with refined solid construction, boutique electronics and custom feel." - Bill Asher

Bill Asher's T-Deluxe model is one of our all-time favorite Asher designs. Using the legendary Fender T-style guitars as a leaping off point, Bill has really put his own spin on this style of guitar. It's far from derivative, and let's face it, who doesn't love a great Tele?

Played acoustically, this guitar has all the liveliness and snap you'd expect from a great Swamp Ash bodied Tele-style guitar. The soft V carve, 12" radius neck feels incredible - gently broken-in, with a nod toward modern playability (given the radius). 

The T Blade pickups sound amazing- think P90-meets-Tele. Lots of Tele snap and twang crossed with the forward, aggressive-when-you-want-it-midrange of a great set of P90s. Mix in a 6 position Tonestyler-esq circuit (chicken head knob), which acts much like a wah-wah pedal, and you can achieve anything from Tele to Junior to faux archtop to controlled (read: useable in a live setting) fuzz tones. 

Combined with a very light overall weight, these specs add up to a killer Tele-style guitar for folks looking to buck tradition. Priced with G&G hardshell case.
