What We Think

This guitar is the Classic T sound we've all come to know and love with a bit of a twist. The SSV Humbucker in the neck takes the robust lows and sparkling highs of the swamp ash body and gives you a touch more versatility. A simple flick of the pickup switch takes you from twangy country/western tones to crunchy and bottom-heavy American blues. As if this guitar couldn't get any more attractive, the roasted maple neck and pau ferro fretboard feel like a dream under your left hand. This guitar practically plays itself!

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

The 2018 Classic T features a new 60’s C vintage standard neck profile. The Classic T retains many of the original specifications of the Classic T Pro including the SSCII hum cancelling system and stainless steel frets. The Wilkinson compensated 3-saddle bridge provide classic 3-saddle tone with superior intonation. 2018 also marks the introduction of Vintage Natural, a new finish option for the Classic T.
