What We Think

Weight: 7.7 lbs.

Condition: Used, Excellent

Something about this custom ordered Suhr loaded with TV Jones is really special! It's tone is so unique yet classic sounding you just gotta love it. The joy of chicken pickin' out some quick lines on this ax is hard to beat with its slick action and smooth easy roasted maple neck. It plays like an absolute dream! While clean spank is certainly great on this one, there is no question it takes gain like an absolute champ as well. Dial it up for either a creamy solo on the neck pickup, or a screaming lead on the bridge, and I guarantee it will step up to the plate with authority! I really love raking out some rhythm chords on both pickups as well! And a little bit of dirty rock & roll rhythm tone suits this guitar to a T! To put it plainly this guitar plays like a dream and sounds like one too! Try this ax and you will have yourself a guitar to last a lifetime!   

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 improved headstock design enhances tuning stability, eliminating the need for a string tree. The Classic T Antique uses our Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish. Our finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection, beauty, and tone. Great care is taken to ensure that the thinnest possible layers of finish are applied. This allows the wood to resonate freely while still providing ample protection. Our state of the art equipment, experienced staff and uncompromising quality control ensures that no instrument leaves our facility until it meets our demanding standards.
