El Chupacabra: unleash your wild side

Just like its namesake, this elusive, mean-spirited guitar has quickly become a legend. While El Chupacabra looks like an ordinary T-style, the truth is she is anything but ordinary. Mario builds this model to produce a myriad of raucous tones with its T.V. Jones Filtertron humbuckers. This beast can go from low down greasy blues to country rock to mild twang in no time flat. Available in a 1 or 2 pickup version.
