What We Think

Killer!  Classic Tele feel and Grestch 6120 sound are elevated to the boutique level in this killer hybrid instrument--quite the combination!  That 60s Roasted Maple neck feels just like home.  Run this gorgeous T through a tube amp worth its salt and you will find yourself lost for hours in a straight up showcase of twangy, jangly goodness.

Weight: 7.15 Lbs

Condition: Used, Very Good

Faint scratch on front, more evident scratches on side.

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

The Suhr Classic T evokes the electric guitar that started it all. Digitized from an original '52 slab body, the Classic T combines legendary design with modern improvements. Frets are Plek leveled and hand dressed for superior playability. The optional body contours improve player comfort while also reducing weight. The improved headstock design enhances tuning stability, eliminating the need for a string tree. The combination of quality tonewoods and Suhr pickups give the Classic T a familiar voice. From Classic Twang to rowdy Rock & Roll, the Classic T is a crowd pleaser that will never go out of style.
