Asher Ultra Tone T. Deluxe
April 7, 2009
The T. Deluxe sports a one-piece swamp-ash body, a 25.5"-scale two-piece quartersawn birds-eye maple neck, and Glendale bridge, brass saddles, and deeply knurled Grip-O-Matic knobs. The sweet looking pickups are by Vintage Vibe and consist of a Custom T-Blade at the bridge and a Mini Blade SC in the neck position. Controls include Volume, Tone, 3-way selector, and a passive 16-position rotary voicing switch that shifts the bridge pickup's resonant frequency and adjusts the treble roll-off point in 1/3 octave steps. This guitar plays beautifully and it offers a very cool selection of tones. We'll be featuring a full report on the T. Deluxe in an upcoming issue GP.
