 T Deluxe  

 


   Here are some examples of the T Deluxe.  This guitar is available as either a drop-top or a flat-top with no contour.  On the flat-top version, the wood used for the top is about 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch thick (as opposed to 1/8 inch on the drop top).  This does make a difference to the overall tone of the instrument making it sound a little "closer" to a Standard.  Pickup and hardware choices are the same as those available for the Standard 6-strings and the other Giffin Ts as shown below in the spec. boxes.  There are endless possibilities for custom versions of the T Deluxe.
