Lay's Customs are hand built in Akron, OH, using all high quality components and exceptional tonewoods. This sunburst T-Style Thinline is an incredibly unique build with a ton more going on beyond its traditional T-Style looks. The black korina (limba) body is chambered with a beautiful flamed redwood top, providing a warm, open, almost hollow-body type sound, and keeping the weight down to an incredible 5lbs-14oz. The BrandonWound Custom pickups were wound exclusively for Lay's Customs and are a slightly overwound set compared to traditional Tele pickups, which helps to smooth out the highs and provide big full low end while still retaining that signature spank you'd expect. With its chambered construction the T-Style Thinline can do everything from country to rock and even jazz and not skip a beat.

Why buy this guitar

Key Features

Lay's Custom T-Style Natural Burst Thinline
The pickups are slightly overwound to eliminate the piercing highs that Teles can make without losing that Tele personality. Both pickups were custom wound by Jared at BrandonWound Custom Pickups exclusively for Lay’s Guitar.
The T-Style Thinline has a chambered Black Korina/Limba body, beautiful flamed Redwood top, and a highly figured torrefied maple neck with rosewood fretboard. 
Thinline Construction
Don't be fooled by the lack of f-holes on the T-Style Thinline-- it's a fully chambered instrument that provides a big, almost hollow-body type sound out of a comparatively small and incredibly lightweight guitar. It's an exceptionally versatile electric.
