    Got this over the weekend. Its a T style, 1 pc light weight ash body, 1 pc maple neck, even c slim profile, 1.687" nut width. Has the best tele tone with the #2 and #4 strat positions added. great sustain and I finally got my first T style after many years of playing hot rodded strats.

    I'm normally a humbucker guy, but I'm going to stick with the braodcaster style bridge pu for now. But eventually might switch to a tele style hot rails. Any suggestions on a good hot output bridge pu that'll drop into the bridge plate? I like a good aggresive humbucker in the bridge. Th only thing I can find so far is the duncan hot rails.

    I sold my three pickup Suhr T last year and have recently come to miss it. I cringe at the thoughts of taking a router to mine, so I'll have to resort to keeping my eyes open for another one.

    In one of my Suhr T's I put in a Fralin SP43, but eventually took it out because I missed some of the tele bark. For now I'm quite happy with the Suhr Broadcaster pickup though eventually I'm sure there will be something else I have to try!

    i agree, for that tele bridge tone there is none better. but i am an old 80s metal schooled guy and miss the power of the humbucker. i'm gonna leave it as is for now, but am curious about other options for a tele bridge pu that is humbucking or similar sound.

    Mine has a vintage body radius - no contours. Iused to have a semi-hollow Suhr T that had both arm and tummy contours. Also used to own an Anderson Hollow T that had both contours.

    This time aorund, I wanted a real T.... ;)
