NGD: 2014 Suhr Classic T Antique

This is a 2014 Suhr Classic T Antique with a roasted maple neck that I found at Reverb a while back and put on my Watch List. I finally capitulated, and it arrived about a week ago. I would not normally buy a guitar sight-unseen, but, hey, COVID. Plus, I already own a Classic S, so I know the neck profile and Suhr craftsmanship. Also, call me a dork, but both Pete Thorn and Ian Thornley have commented that they do not sweat ordering Suhrs — and their words have rung true. Took it out of the box, put on a new set of strings, and *poof* — plays perfectly.

Outside of the roasted neck and light aging, it's a standard Classic T Antique with a 2-piece, swamp ash body. The neck finish is satin, but the body is lacquer.

I have not owned a tele since my first electric — a Tokai BreezySound that I had for maybe six months. At first, I was totally perplexed by the pickup configuration; how do you reconcile these vastly different pickups? But having used it for lessons, a studio class, and some recording, I am now totally in love with it. And the SNAP you can get out of the maple-board/swamp-ash-body combo is just staggering. I had really soured on maple necks, but obviously, I was just not playing the right ones.

I want to give a shout out to @Husky. I bought this thing based on a Reverb listing and it's becoming one of my favorite guitars. It's also my fourth Suhr product (including the Classic S, an Eclipse, and my SL-67), and I continue to be impressed. Suhr fan 4 lyfe. Thank you, sir.

Nice! And congrats for finding a killer T-style! I have a Classic T Pro which is essentially the same guitar (Swamp Ash/Maple combo) without the roasted neck. It's a powerhouse Tele. "SNAP" indeed!

You guys aren’t making my Suhr decision any easier

I’m close to pulling the trigger on an antique, but am thinking of getting a roasted instead:dunno

You can't go wrong either way, Just buy the one that looks and feel good to you.

I had one, great guitar LOVED the neck. That neck and a K-line I had were the best I've ever played by far.
I wasn't a huge fan of those saddles, I think I replaced mine with Rutter's compensated (which is what I used on all of my personal builds).

Congrats! I have a 2014 roasted T in butterscotch. You’ve got yourself a fantastic new guitar. Enjoy it!
