T-Style - This is the style Mario Guitars first started building. They offer this model mainly in a '50s or '60s style, and the options are many.

When the T-Style hit the market in the 1950s it revolutionized the way guitar music was played. The T-style is elegantly simple while also being remarkably versatile. This classic guitar style has graced the shoulders of Keith Richards, Bruce Springsteen, Merle Haggard and many, many more.

Mario offers this model mainly in a 50s or 60s style, and the options are many; play around with different pick-up configurations and make a T that is totally just for you. Go classically twangy or add humbuckers for a crunch, there is no wrong way to enjoy playing this magnificent instrument.

Comments received on Mario T Style guitars
“My Mario Tele style is the shit! I have played Fender CS, GVCG, Danocaster, you name it – and the Mario tele beats them all in sound, weight, and looks. Keep up the great work!!” - Jeffrey T.

“Your relic T styles are to die for! So what is your technique for getting the stress cracks in your finish? Very nicely done and extremely believable. Probably the best I've seen. Oh and the nicks are artwork” - Brent G.

“For Teles there is no one you guys compete with. Awesome! The best! It is unbelievable how you guys finish a guitar!!!!!!!” - Kenneth C.

“I gotta did you simulate the temperature checking? All the other builders guitars look like they used a compressed air spray can, and the checking is all uneven 'spider webbing.”' Mario, your finish checking looks REAL!!!” - Mark D.

“All other Tele builders need to take lessons from you Mario!” - Jordan D.

“Played one of your Teles today at a guitar center - all I can say is AMAZING! Love how you offer NON-RELICS as well as the beat up ones!” - Hayden S.
