Suhr Classic T
Suhr Guitars Classic T
Custom / Modified Fender Telecaster-inspired boutique electric guitar from John Suhr
Featherweight! Modern specs and features for incredible tone and playability
John Suhr sure knows how to build a stunning guitar! When we originally ordered this Classic T we were thinking about a hard and heavy rock machine. However, once we spent some time playing it we were stunned about how versatile and phenominal soundind it is at just about any style of music you throw at it! Tone ranging from hard rock and metal are obviously not a problem. But the subtle nuances of a Gibson 335 can conjured on some jazz and fusion style riffs, as well as some spanky, single coil country and blues tones as well, thanks to the great pickups and verstaile electronics setup.
The solid Roasted Maple neck and lightweight Mahogany body with strings through construction add a lot to the lively resonance of this guitar. Crisp and Clear with a Mid-Range Punch. The Suhr JST SSV and SSH+ humbuckers are wired to a 5-way switch and there is a push/pull on the tone control to split both pickups in the middle position. A stunning quilted Maple top and natural Mahogany back lend an elegance to the overal design.
Like all Suhr Guitars, this one plays great! In fact, I dare say you'd be hard pressed to find anything that plays better. It's also uber-comfortable thanks to an elegantly contoured body (tummy, arm and heel). Suhr Guitars builds some of the finest boutique electric guitars on the planet. The ultimate in craftsmanship and quality control.
