Eternal Guitars / 50s T-Type / 2011 / Blonde / Guitar For Sale
Eternal Guitars - ‘50s Blonde T-Type
Authentically aged replica electric guitars. Built in Britain using the best quality components and finished in genuine nitro-cellulose lacquer.
An ash body (with authentic lower horn router hump) finished in a worn and checked nitrocellulose finish is firmly screwed to a soft V profiled one-piece maple neck. The fingerboard is vintage spec. 7.25” radius, but the 21 neatly installed and polished Dunlop 6150 frets make playing a breeze. Two single coil ‘Eternal’ pickups provide the juice while the strings anchor through the body and pass over a trio of brass saddles on a steel bridge plate/pickup surround on their way to a hand cut bone nut and nickel finish tuners. The aged hardware and finish are complimented perfectly by an aged and lacquered Bakelite scratchplate.

Electrics: Handwound and aged ‘Eternal Guitars’ bridge and neck single coil pickups: Hand tooled UK finished bobbins, made of Forbon (compressed fibre) with Alnico 5 staggered polepieces, which are bevelled and then aged both physically and aesthetically, but the Bridge pickups have been designed with slightly larger than normal Alnico 5 poles to replicate the traditional Broadcaster(ish) grunt found on early ‘50’s guitars. They are handwound with 43 gauge wire which gives a depth and grunt often lacking of more common pickups. Each is wax potted and finished with a string wrap and an engraved copper plated steel baseplate before being wax potted for a second time. The pickup has cloth covered hook-up wire and the whole pickup is aged to taste. The neck pickups are built using the same general processes but the covers are hand aged to give a faithful worn look, again 43 gauge wire Alnico 5 poles, double wax potting and attention to detail give these pickups a unique quality. CRL 3-way switch, Orange Drop Capacitor, CTS solid shaft 250k pots, cloth covered hook-up wire and a Switchcraft output jack complete the wiring.
