    2000 Suhr Tele. Great axe. For those with gear trading tendencies, I'm sure that basement looks familiar ;)

    I cannot readily imagine having more respect for an electric guitar maker than I have for John Suhr.

    Those who purchase his work undeniably have quite an eye for quality.

    Long may he run!

    nice guitars guys. I love my sherwood green classic with s/s/hum. I have another classic ordered with 3 singles and 1088, for my vintage tone craving. I had a classic T that kicked butt, but it had a slimmer neck and I have grown addicted to the fatter 60's necks, and can't go back! new one will be sonic blue- I love suhrs in those early 60's hot rod colors, candy apple red, fiesta, sonic blue, ocean turq, sherwood green, ice blue,etc. they make me happy:)

    originaly made for Steve Stevens for the latest Billy Idol record. SS decided he wanted a Suhr T so I got the Classic. Incredible guitar.

    Ted, that gold-top, maple neck T. is quite a stunner. Looks like it's got a big neck too.:AOK

    What are the specs?

    Thanks. I love it.

    swamp ash
    one piece maple neck (vintage medium)
    9-12 radius
    I think they are Suhr "medium" frets
    Suhr tele pickups
