Suhr Classic T Ponderosa Pine Raised Center Namm Select #JS9Y9T
Includes Hard Case
What we say:
Suhr Select is a series of very limited guitars that are not part of the Suhr Catalogue. Indeed, they are actually the results of John Suhr’s own explorations into tone, hardware and colour that meet his own ideas of what makes an excellent, special guitar.
John’s mantra when dreaming up these exclusive designs is ‘form follows function’: playability and practical application are as important as beautiful looks and bold design. Each of these Suhr Select guitars are born directly from the mind of a master guitar builder.
This stunning T Classic displays lots of excellent design features that give it its own identity. Starting with the wood choices and construction, this has a body made of Ponderosa Pine for a highly resonant, fifties referencing base tone. The centre of the body is raised for a two-tier effect and the lower ‘wing’ sections have beautiful pieces of Flame Maple added. A translucent Tobacco Burst finish shows off the individual sections of wood brilliantly.
The bolt-on neck is a delicious piece of AAA Roasted Birdseye Maple carved into a 60’s era C shape profile. The fingerboard is a lovely piece of Indian Rosewood with a rolled edge and a compound radius of 10-14”. This makes playing extremely comfortable whether you are chording or executing technical passages. 22 heavy stainless steel frets will give you a lifetime of service. To cap off this great neck, John has gone for Suhr’s Hybrid headstock design, a perfect choice that echoes the design decisions made for the body.p>For this T Classic, John has chosen two S90 single coils, Suhr’s take on vintage P90s. Full of character and expression, these pickups sound incredible and are enhanced by the use of an SSCII circuit for getting rid of background hum. There really isn’t any style out there that you can’t turn your hand to with this guitar, such is the versatility of tone available.
A Tonepros bridge and Suhr’s own locking tuners finish off an impressive collection of hardware.
This limited edition Suhr Select T Classic is a real work of art: it’s also a fantastically useful sonic tool for any guitarist to make their own. This guitar is personally signed by John Suhr himself.
