Suhr Classic T Antique (2015)


Just in on awesome 2015 Suhr Classic T Antique! 

This relic'd Classic T is a decidedly modern take on the classic Telecaster and easily lives up to John Suhr's legendary reputation for building flawless, easy to play, great sounding instruments. The twin Suhr Thornbucker humbuckers, 9-12" radius, roasted maple neck, 22 frets, Suhr Locking tuners, and "chopped" Wilkinson T-style bridge will appeal to players who love the look of a Tele but demand a more modern playing experience. 

The first thing you'll notice when picking this Classic T up is how lightweight it is - 6lbs 7oz! Even at this weight, it balances perfectly and feels great seated or standing. We love the feel (and functionality) of the compound radius, satin-finished roasted neck, and even C carve - perfect for a variety of playing styles. 

Plugged in, the Thornbuckers have a lot of punch and midrange bite but never sound overly modern or harsh. Pete Thorn is a very in demand sideman who knows a thing or two about gear (to put it lightly) so you know pickups with his name on them are going to be great. Anything from old school rock to fat, jazzy neck tones are possible, all with a nice top-end sparkle and spank thanks to the T-style bridge. 

This Classic T is simply a blast to play, is immaculately built, and covers a wide range of tones - what's not to like? Priced with non-original hardshell case. 

On consignment, no trades please.
