This week, Monday means Model T here at The North American Guitar in Nashville! Nick is going to walk us through two new vintage-inspired electrics from Rick Turner - a Model T Special Formica Top and a Model T Deluxe Quilted Maple Top.

Rick Turner Model T Deluxe Quilted Maple Top

The Rick Turner Model T is a culmination of the retro Kay Kraft designs from the ‘20s, ’30s electronics, and ‘50s design sensibilities. One immediately notices the Model T’s unique body shape, which pays homage to the vintage Kay Kraft Venetian archtops of the 1920’s. The Model T boldly boasts a single, yet highly versatile, Rick Turner “Rick” double-horseshoe pickup. Combined with the volume and tone controls, as well as an “all controls bypass” switch, the Model T offers a plethora of tones ranging from vintage lead tones, to classic twang and jangle. This simple layout allows the gorgeous figured Maple top to really shine. These features, paired with its Slim C Maple neck, 1 11/16” nut width, 25 1/2” scale length, and Schaller Roller bridge, make the Rick Turner Model T ideal for those wanting a modern and simple instrument that is rooted in vintage design and tonality.
