Title: T24: Variations in body type?
Post by: Mandrake Root on March 15, 2005, 12:35:16 PM
I own a T-24 (and love it, for the record.)  I was told that the body is made of bubinga, and it certainly looks different than any of the pics I've been able to find.  Were these ever made with woods other than mahogany? [I'm no exotic wood aficionado, obviously.]

Oh yeah, and have they always been made with Grovers?

Are you sure you have a T-24? The only version made has Mahgany and maple.

They are stained mahogany. My T24 has beautiful swirling grain that is unlike any I've seen in photos. They all have Grovers. I wouldn't get rid of it for any amount. It plays fast, sounds rich. With a little tone shaping it is the clearest bass sound I've heard.
