Expertly handcrafted in London, Birdtown guitars combine a keen eye for classic body shapes, premium tone and authentic vintage finishes with baritone scale length necks, finally giving players the extended tonal range of a baritone guitar with true vintage style.
The Birdtown T-Bird combines the stripped back, versatile tone and looks of a '60s Telecaster with a 27" scale baritone neck, constructed from flamed maple with an Indian rosewood fretboard. The alder body is finished in a nitrocellulose Pelham Blue lacquer, lightly relic'd to reproduce years of honest play wear. The body is fitted Radio Shop ID:Telecaster pickups, with a reduced wax potting process that enhances the tonal character, from a mellow rhythm sound with increased clarity to the typically bright and twangy bridge tone you would expect from a vintage Telecaster.
Each neck is hand made and shaped to an early '60s Fender 'C' style profile that is comfortable and effortlessly playable, with a nitro lacquer finish on the rear of the neck and on the headstock. The T-Bird features all the hardware you expect on a guitar of this kind, with a traditional three saddle bridge with brass saddles for enhanced resonance, a 3 ply mint pickguard, and the signature Birdtown headstock design. This guitar also includes a hard case.
All Birdtown guitars come with a 3 year warranty as standard, and are set up by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop.
