U10 – sunburst

Another U10. This is one for those vintage fans. This tobacco burst finish on an alder body is a classic so we also added a binding to the fretboard to match the classic look. What do you think?70s style U10 sounds crazy but it rocks. • alder body • high gloss finish • 3-piece maple

U10 – satin red

It seems that we set a trend with the satin red and black finishes. This is the first beautiful U10 with a custom 5th/4th tuning. Feels amazing. One of two satin red guitars we did in the last run. • swamp ash body • satin red finish • 3-piece maple neck with carbon rods and

U8 – greyburst padauk

U8 – eye popular

This U8 was another special request. The customer said he has really big hands and needs a 34″ scale length guitar tuned E A D G C F A D. He does not want to tap just likes the clean sound and the size. So we did this U8 with a slightly higher string height

U8 Deluxe – Plumwood Maple Lefty

Why does this look weird? It is a beautiful lefty U8 Deluxe made for aNDREmu .He asked for a plumwood fretboard so we did matching pickups, too. Since all U8 Deluxe guitars are custom made and like all Touch Guitars build to order there is no additional charge for left handed models. Check out Andre’s

This pickup is full range which sounds strange at first since the sound is almost acoustic. The tone-block knobs on

T8 Greyburst Plumwood
