Chopper TL Overview 

The Award Winning Schroeder TL is a single coil work horse built for rock and roll. Jason designed this to play on stage, so there are no short cuts on this guitar. Only the best parts and materials are used in its construction. Although it CAN do country twang and do it well, it is voiced to achieve the articulate and biting tones of classic rock and roll. You can hear its character in every place on the fingerboard, complex overtones, body and bite. In our opinion, all the things that make a great T-style instrument. It was built to require minimal, if any, adjustment to your amp if you go from your 'bucker guitar to your TL.

"The Schroeder [TL] will drive a small tube amp deliciously... conjuring tones that are at once rich, airy, and replete with harmonic overtones."
