Mongrel Mongrel | LsL Instruments
Our Mongrel is what its name implies, a Mongrel. This guitar is a hybrid of our T Bone and Saticoy models. It's an incredibly versatile guitar that combines some of the best features of both models in one guitar. With its T Bone bridge and P-88, higher output, T Bone pickup, it has the spanky lead tone that will cut through with a brilliant tone. Then in the middle and neck positions we've placed our T Bone neck pickup with the middle being a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity version. Now you've got the great T Bone neck position plus both of the out of phase tones and a new middle position tone. The Mongrel has a T Bone style control plate that is reversed with one volume, one tone control and a 5-way switch.

Our Mongrel also features an arm cut, belly cut, rounded neck heel and a relieved cutaway on the treble side of the body. Mongrels are available in Swamp Ash and Alder and they can be made with maple or rosewood fingerboards with a fairly flat 12" radius. They can also be special ordered with a vintage, 7.25" or more modern 9.5" radius.

We use our standard T Bone bridge with LsL, brass saddles, springs and screws like on our T Bones.

If you need a guitar that covers both T Bone and Saticoy tones, then the Mongrel is for you.
