Thanks to a post on Premier Guitar, I discovered a really interesting brand: Tao Guitars. But instead of talking about their wonderful Phaeton model for a price of 18000€ (no, there is not a zero too many), I will speak about the new T-Bucket series, a reimagined Telecaster electric guitar in a “neo-vintage” style. It is particulary the blue one that attracted my attention. The American alder body and the quartersawn 22 cases maple neck are well selected to provide the best materials. The small dot inlays, put on the top, do a perfect link between the neck and the rosewood fingerboard. The Tao custom fretting offers a better comfort for the guitarist, and each materials were carefully selected, making this handmade instruments real masterpieces. For the sound, we can find two Custom Bare Knuckle pickups or two optional Custom Stephens Design, covered by handmade pickup covers with cuttings and black front grill rubber. Check out more pictures in the following post, and also a Brice Delage video review for La Guitare.com. Prices start at 2990€.
