Beryl Studio T Electric Guitar Review

This review was submitted by Guitar Jar contributor: David Griffiths

I first heard of Beryl through this very website, and before long found myself being accepted for an endorsement from Phil and his team at Beryl.

Beryl Studio TBeing a Telecaster man, I plumbed for the Studio T model, and when I took it out of it’s gig bag when it was delivered it was love at first strum.

The Studio T is a sprightly young guitar. It has a wonderful, easy action and the feel of the whole instrument is one of quality and attention to detail.

Nothing feels cheap or awkward and for a new company, that is quite an achievement.

I must say that although it sounds like a Tele – it has it’s own unique flavour, owing mainly to the bridge pickup. There’s something very raw about the sound of the Beryl on the bridge pickup with both volume and tone at full setting.

It’s hard to describe, it’s a pleasingly gnarly sound that I love pushing through my pedals and my VOX AC15. The middle setting is really accurately in the middle of the sound. The neck gives that warmer, rounder tone which is more mellow than my 1979 Japanese Fender Tele.

All in all, I have found the Studio T to be a adequately versatile, yet true-to-tele performer and have used it extensively live and in the studio.

I am proud to own serial number 00014 of this up and coming make, and I hope that given a chance, you’d get your hands on one.
