The ALL NEW Classic T Pro features: the innovative SSCII (Silent Single-Coil) hum cancelling system, Classic T or SSV pickups, tinted satin finished neck with stainless steel frets, and the option of a Maple or Rosewood fingerboard.
When customers asked for an instrument with all the tone and playability of our Classic T Antique, without the antiquing, Suhr listened, and delivered two great eras of Classic T goodness. This particular guitar is a 60s spec.
'60s Spec: 2-piece Alder body with a Rosewood fingerboard on a Maple neck, choice of finishes (3 Tone Burst, Black or Olympic White), and a 3-Ply Parchment pickguard.
One of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960's, is grown all over the world. Alder is medium to light in weight with soft tight pores. It has a light tan color and can sometimes exhibit large swirling grain patterns and rings. Alder is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows. Alder is used extensively for guitar bodies because of its light weight and its full sound.
Fingerboard: Indian Rosewood
Being one of the most popular fingerboard woods for guitars, Indian Rosewood is usually sourced from either India or Bangladesh. It has a thick grain pattern with colors ranging from brown-black, purple, to red-brown. Indian Rosewood is particularly favored by blues and rock players for it’s thick, sweet tone. It has an ideal balance of fat lows, warm mids and a sparkling high end presence.
Each Classic T Pro is equipped with the Even C Medium neck profile. Rolled edges and a 9-12” compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.
The Quartersawn Maple neck is tinted, then finished in satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
Every Classic T Pro includes medium stainless steel frets, which offers silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Utilizing the PLEK process on each instrument guarantees the best possible string action, ensures optimized playability and eliminates intonation problems.
Suhrs proprietary passive 60-cycle hum reduction system that has no impact on tone, no batteries to change - just transparent noise reduction.
Pickups: Classic T
The Classic T pickups are wound to produce a broad range of classic T-style tones. From clean and snappy to warm and punchy with just the right amount of growl, the Classic T Antique is equally at home in a Nashville honky-tonk or on the Sunset Strip. Every Classic T pickup is hand-built, precisely wound (using our proprietary winding process), and features: plain enamel (neck) and a formvar wired (bridge), and specially formulated Alnico V magnets with vintage correct black fiber bottoms.
