    Hand cut only, no body contours
    1/8" body edge radius
    Even fat C neck carve, .880 - .960
    10"-14" radius
    Tusq nut
    Medium SS frets
    3 saddle vintage T bridge
    1.687 nut width
    Chrome hardware
    Gotoh Kluson gears
    Black, glossy Bakolite pickguard
    Tele Control Plate
    Tele electro cup socket
    Chrome knobs
    Chrome Neck T pickup
    Black Broadcaster Bridge Pickup
    Trans Tele Straw body color
    Abalone face, side dots and logo with gloss headstock


    Hurry! :D

    Gilbert! You get to play it! Are you kidding me?

    As soon as it gets here, we'll set up for you to come to my house or we meet somewhere else. You need to play the Suhr Classic too and through the 1964 Airline/Valco head that Todd Shock refurbed for me. I think that amp will blow your mind amonsgt some of my other gems.

    Where are you guys playing next? I was out of town last weekend.

    So anyway, of all things, Eddie doesn't work on Wednesday! Story of my life :D

    John,

    You make an amazing guitar. I'm delighted to have this second Suhr and I'm afraid this Classic T may become my number 1, no offense to all my other guitars . . .

    What is it about becoming a middle aged man and a T style guitar anyway? :D

    Thanks.

    Rick

    I've got a Suhr Classic T Trans-Straw color guitar.

    Great choice! My Guitar teacher who is a great Teli player says it rivals his original Fender 63' for tone.

    I just paid the balance on this guitar and Eddie told me that it came in weighing a good amount less than 7 pounds :D Anything around 6.something for a plank is sweet :)

    I should have it by next Thursday . . .
