When our customers asked for an instrument with all the tone and playability of our Classic T Antique, without the antiquing – we listened. The Classic T Pro marries vintage design with modern improvements resulting in an instrument that is capable of producing iconic tones while retaining the build quality, features and playability you’ve come to expect from Suhr.
The Classic T Pro features a Maple neck with your choice of Maple (on Swamp Ash body) or Indian Rosewood (on Alder body) fingerboard. The neck is tinted and finished with our satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
EVEN C MEDIUM (.840″-.920″)
The Classic T Pro is equipped with our Even C Medium profile. Rolled edges and a 9″-12” compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.
MEDIUM STAINLESS STEEL (.055″ x .090″)
Stainless steel frets offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation.
The contoured heel of the Classic Pro allows for easier access to the upper register. For optimum tone and stability, the neck joint must not be too tight or too loose, therefore all of our neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.
This is a standard vintage shape that many of us grew up with and has the addition of a contoured heel where the neck bolts on for easy access to all the frets.
Available in Alder or Swamp Ash. Alder is one of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960’s and is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows. Swamp Ash, a popular body wood in the 1950’s, is highly resonant and offers a slightly scooped midrange.
Our finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection, beauty, and tone. Great care is taken to ensure that the thinnest possible layers of finish are applied. This allows the wood to resonate freely while still providing ample protection.
The SSCII is our proprietary silent single coil system. The SSCII is installed inside the body of the guitar and works with traditional single coil pickups. It reduces 60 cycle hum and has no impact on tone, no batteries to change – just transparent noise reduction.
The unique blend of locking tuners, a high performance three saddle bridge, and our proprietary SSCII noise reduction system creates the perfect combination of vintage tones with modern performance.
The Wilkinson compensated bridge with brass saddles was chosen for its superior tuning stability, sustain, and intonation performance while maintaining the classic look and vibe of a true vintage instrument.
The Classic T Pro features our Classic T bridge pickup which is wound to produce a broad range of classic T-style tones, from clean and snappy to warm and punchy with just the right amount of growl. A Classic T single coil or chrome SSV humbucker is available for the neck position.
Equipped with staggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.
