Affordable handmade relic guitars at mass production prices from LSL.
LSL Instruments is a manufacturer of vintage, hand-made T-style guitars, located in the heart of beautiful Van Nuys, CA.
Body and Neck
The T-Bone Swamp Ash model features an extremely lightweight swamp ash T-style body. LSL’s choice to utilize such light woods adds incredible punch to your sound, and minimizes stress on your shoulder for hours of playing time on stage and in the rehearsal room. The T-Bone features a fully handmade “C” profile maple neck with a walnut skunk stripe along the back, and a 7.25” radius maple fretboard. Medium-high 6105 frets grace the fretboard, and all LSL guitars’ fretboards are manually relic’d based on photographs of actual vintage instruments. Fretboard edges are hand-rounded for a silky-smooth feel.
Incredible Sayoko Kuwabara custom hand wound, vintage-style pickups deliver the T-Bone’s vintage sound to your audience.
LSL focuses on recreating a truly vintage looking and sounding instrument by fitting the T-Bone with a vintage-style bridge with three brass saddles, vintage-style Kluson tuners, a vintage-style handmade truss rod, and dome control knobs. Vintage-style slot-head screws are used to attach the Bakelite pickguard, control plate, tuners and string tree, while Phillips head screws are used elsewhere. All metal parts are manually aged for a truly incomparable vintage look and feel.
All LSL instruments feature all-nitrocellulose finishes that are hand-rubbed, and available in butterscotch and sunburst colors. Each instrument is individually relic'd, set-up, signed, and numbered by LSL.
