This guitar is also known as the T 1. It was the first guitar body shape drawn by the designer whilst attending the Guitar Research & Design School. Note that preston thompson guitars for sale are also available online. Interested musicians can also go through a full portfolio of different Preston Thompson designs and makes before settling into their final choice. The earliest Thompsons were famous for its lower bout guitar tone and excellent balance.
One Preston model offers the musician an approximate Dreadnought volume. Nevertheless, it is comfortable for the guitarist to play. This is because the shape of the guitar has a tighter waste and narrower body depth. It has the power of a larger guitar and yet with a sweeter tone. It is articulate and responsive to the guitarist’s encouragements. It remains an all-round player. For physical appearance, musicians have quite a variety of choices.
They have the pick of back and side tone-wood selections. Aesthetic features to look forward to are as follows. The pickguard is in tortoiseshell. The fret wire type comes in standard nickel silver. Bridge pins have been labeled ‘ivoroid’ by one retailer. Tuners are in Waverly nickel. Strings are displayed in an elixir phosphor bronze. Ultimately, the finish of the guitar is nitrocellulose or gloss. The guitar’s pickup has a harped tone.
Ultimately, the Preston Thompson guitar range is categorized as an acoustic guitar or acoustic flattop. By looks, feel and play, it could even become a classical guitar. But that will depend on just how accomplished a guitarist is. It is pointless restricting this guitar to any particular genre. It seems to have far too much power and melody to begin with. Hope this brief review of the Preston Thompson has been useful.
