Redhouse Guitars : T-Style T5 Electric Guitar
Tony Nasrallah is quietly but confidently building himself a solid reputation for quality guitar building here in Melbourne under the banner of Redhouse Guitars.
I am the lucky owner of this T5 T-Style and also an S6 S-Style (see: http://www.redhouseguitars.com.au/S_6__Fiesta_Red_2.shtml). Both guitars serve me as well or better than anything else I own in the studio and on stage.
Tony’s choice of quality and/or boutique components – rooted mainly in the vintage tradition – means that the guitars look great, sound great and play great. When I was first introduced to Tony’s work it took me all of 60 seconds to realise he was producing quality instruments and I actually sold a signature Fender in order to replace it with one of Tony’s guitars. No regrets, either.
I’ll let Tony’s website and this video tell the story. If you have further questions regarding Redhouse Guitars, they should be directed to Tony via his contact page at http://www.redhouseguitars.com.au/contact_redhouse.php, or left on this Youtube page for his comment/response.
