The T models, introduced in 1988 for the Japanese market and 1990 internationally, were Samick's Fender Telecaster style models. It was based on the Hondo H-757 and initially featured a headstock design unique to this model. In 1991, the body shape was re-designed for a more modern look. In 1993, it returned to a more direct copy of the Tele shape and now featured the same headstock as the S (Strat style). In 1995, it became part of the Artist Series.
