    That's a very nice looking guitar indeed. How's about a brief tone report (or a not so brief one, that's cool too) as and when possible? I'd love to know about the tone such a spec provides.... what are the pups, incidentally?

    Again, congrats!

    Havent had too much opportunity to play it but has that great comfortable out-of-the-case feel as any Suhr with the body contours. I didnt get to pick out the specs on this as it was store inventory
    but overall was very close to what I would have likely ordered.

    The 60's C neck is larger than what I am used to but finding it a nice comfortable shape. I seem to be graduating to larger size necks with the Andersons I own(ed), Im finding them more comfortable than thinner/smaller necks.

    I used to have an all koa T chambered w/ single coils which
    was a tad less weight. The non chambered mahogany feels a little heavier. As expected, the mahogany body with the 2 SSVs provide nice thick LP-ish tone with a comfortable T body shape
    I prefer.


    Here are the primary specs-

    Model-Classic T
    Body wood-mahogany
    Body option-curly koa top
    Neck wood-Mapel w/ african rosewood
    Neck shape- 60's C vintage std .810-,930 10-14"R
    Frets-Heavy
    Bridge-Standard Trem (steel block)
    Nut width- 1.65
    Hardware- Chrome
    Gears- Sperzel locking
    Electronics- Volume, Tone, 3 way toggle, push pull to split bridge
    Neck PU- JST SSV humbucker chrome
    Bridge- JST SSV+ humbucker chrome
    Paint option- Gloss finish, Match figured headstock, no scraped binding

    That's one of the nicest koa tops I've ever seen. And that was store stock?
