This body is pictured in rough sanded condition. We final sand all of our bodies to 300 grit before shipment. Any rough edges, router “burns” or pencil marks you may see in the picture will be removed from the body when you receive it. 

Like all Esquires/Snakeheads, this body is milled to 1.5″ thickness rather than full 1.75″ “T-Style” thickness. 

*This body is drilled for the 3-screw bridge that was on the Snakehead prototype guitars, NOT the standard Tele® bridge. To our knowledge, the only manufacturer that sells these bridges is Rutters Guitars.

Finish Type?

**Finish lead times are 16-20 weeks.** TruGrain is a new finish technique we are offering. The body is not grain filled, so it allows us to spray the finish thinner. This process removes a few ounces of weight, gives the body more resonance, shows off the beautiful wood grain patterns under the finish and looks super cool! (See our recent post on our “News” page!)

Finish Color?

Degree of aging?

Bodies getting a finish ONLY!


Based on the 1952 style, the t-style guitar body shape features the classic design of the body that started it all.  This classic guitar body would make an excellent replacement for any t-style guitar, vintage or modern.  If you are seeking a build, the t-style is the easiest first build to help you over the learning curve.

This style has been here since the beginning.  From twang to crunch, it is hard to find a modern guitarist that doesn’t own at least one t-style.
