  T1,T2 Series
 

 



  Here are some examples of the T1 and T2 guitars.  These guitars share the same body shape as the Standard, the main difference being the absence of a separate carved top.  They do, however, have a fore-arm contour on the front for comfort along with the body contour on the back.   The models shown here are fairly typical of a standard version; custom versions of these guitars are limited only by ones imagination.
