Shoreline T

It is clear from the outset where the roots of this guitar lie. Leo’s original was a total game changer in the guitar world.

Featuring a lightweight hand selected body paired with a beautiful bolt on maple neck the Shoreline T is the perfect blend between tribute and innovation. The lightweight body delivers a very lively response and a fast attack to the note, rich with warmth while balanced with a sweet crisp treble. When paired with the hollow snap of the bolt on maple neck it really is a classic combination.

Carved Heel Design

The Shoreline also includes many modern features to bring it up to date with the 21st century. The easy access neck join and hand carved heel design allows the player to get right to the top frets very comfortably. The modern 12 inch fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets make for easy playability and clean string bending. Also featuring a bridge with intonated brass saddles to deliver a really authentic vintage T style tone while also being to play in tune accurately. 

Warm & Hollow

Continuing with using only the finest components these Shoreline guitars are fitted with Bare Knuckle pickups as standard, they are handmade in the UK. The set that I use as standard in these Shorelines is a special recommendation after a long conversation with Tim Mills at Bare Knuckle to discuss the tonal aims of this model. The conclusion is the combination of a Black guard 52 neck with a Black guard 50 bridge. They are really open sounding pickups, very warm and hollow in the neck and all the clang and twang you could want in the bridge. (other brand and sets can of course be specified by the customer).

Steeped in Tradition

The Shorelines are fitted as standard with a 4 way switch to allow an extra neck and bridge in series option, which produces a fuller fatter tone closer to a humbucker sound.All in all this makes for a very versatile instrument. While steeped in tradition it is also unique in just as many ways.

The elegant curves of the original body shape balance well either on a strap or on your lap. The maple neck is finished with a hand rubbed oil and wax finish, which not only brings out the natural beauty of the wood, it feels unbelievably silky to the touch.

Options 

There are many options available on the Shoreline T’s. From double bound custom style bodies, to bigsby loaded twang machines. Semi hollow thinline options and a variety of possible pickup choices. Please contact us if you have any questions about personalising a Shoreline for you. 

Hi Seth, I don’t want to sound like a sycophant however I just wanted to tell you,

I’ve played about thirty hours on the Shoreline so far and I think it’s the Stradivarius of the guitar world. It’s superb in every way and I wanted to thank you again,

I LOVE it! All the best
