What We Think

John Suhr’s ‘T’ style guitar, like all aspects of his brand, is rooted in tradition. The Classic T Antique series has taken the most notable characteristics of '50s ‘T’ style guitars that gained so much notoriety and applied a few modern twists for exceptional playability. This one feels great, sounds great, and goes for a great price for everything you get out of it. 

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

Our customers have asked for an instrument that has a vintage look and feel, without sacrificing playability and tone. Enter the Classic T Antique™. We designed this guitar to ensure it preserves the spirit of a vintage instrument while performing like a Suhr. Impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail ensure that every neck pocket is tight, every fret is perfectly dressed, and that every instrument is ready for peak performance before leaving our facility.
The nitro-cellulose lacquer finish and our proprietary antiquing process make each Classic Antique™ feel like it has been loved for years. The Classic Antique now includes: our innovative SSCII (Silent Single-Coil) hum cancelling system, and a vintage tinted nitrocellulose neck with stainless steel frets.
