Dale Roberts is a Jacksonville FL based Luthier who builds custom guitars for the likes of Steve Lynch (Autograph), Jimi Bell (House of Lords) and many other commissioned builds. Every once in a while, Dale will build a guitar that has not been spoken for and we're lucky to have one right here.
This T-Style guitar is not only beautiful to look at, but it's super versatile too. It's loaded with a matched set of Seymour Duncan Hot Rails that will deliver more tone than meets the eye. For starters, you have the typical humbucker tone you would expect. But this is where it gets interesting... the pick-ups are wired with two DPDT switches which allow for five additional sounds:
Bridge single coil
