The Suhr Classic T Antique was created in the spirit of the original Fender Telecaster, and developed to satisfy the needs of guitarists who wanted an instrument that preserves classic tone and design, while improving on the limitations of vintage instruments. The Telecaster has long been a staple for many guitarists of practically all genres. The new Suhr Classic T Antique propels this design to new heights by blending the best of the old and new schools, in a design that will make you re-think what is possible.

BUILD QUALITY - Every Classic T Antique is built with impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail to ensure that every neck pocket is tight, every fret is perfectly dressed, and each instrument plays its best before leaving our facility.

NITRO-CELLULOSE FINISH - The antiqued Nitro-cellulose lacquer finish allows the Swamp Ash body to resonate freely and feel like it has been well worn in for years.

UNRIVALED PLAYABILITY - The Even C medium neck profile, medium stainless steel frets, and 9-12" compound fingerboard radius improve upon the playability of vintage instruments, resulting in a neck that is equally comfortable for chording and soloing.

BUILT FOR TONE - Our Classic T pickups cover a broad range of vintage and modern tones. From clear and twangy to thick and growling, the Classic T Antique is equally at home in a Nashville honky-tonk or on the Sunset Strip. The 3-saddle vintage style bridge and compensated brass saddles combine vintage tele tone with improved intonation.

Don't let the price fool you, the Pro Series is still built to the same quality standards you would expect from Suhr, only we just do them in larger runs to save you a serious chunk of change. These are made with the same woods, components, hands, and processes (including the PLEK machine) that make the custom Suhr guitars.

With Custom Suhr Guitars: Each Suhr Custom guitar is built precisely to the customer's specs. Special woods, special inlays, neck shapes, fret sizes, colors, electronics, you name it. That whole process is a lengthy one and requires lots of special attention along the way to insure a custom Suhr is *EXACTLY* as the customer specified. IN addition, the machines that cut cut the necks, bodies, etc have to be reprogrammed for each guitar. The paint shop has to change everything up for each individual guitar. You get the picture.

With Pro Series Suhr Guitars: The specs are all set and fixed for the entire run. Same body/neck woods, electronics, neck shapes, fret sizes, etc. We get together with Suhr and select the most common specs that customers request for a specific model, change up the colors a bit for variation, and do a run of 50+ at a time. But here's where the story gets more interesting... With the pro series, *EVERY* step of the Pro Series build process is exactly like the Custom build process. The same pickups, hardware, woods, etc are used for the Pro series. The same PLEK machines are used on the Pro Series. The same guys that do the setups and final finishing on the Customs are the guys who do it on the Pros.

So what does that mean? It means if a build spec for a Pro Series guitar matches what you're wanting, then you'd be crazy not to get the Pro. :) It's the same guitar. Period. Honestly, it's a steal, and we think people should take advantage before Suhr comes it it's senses and does away with the Pro Series. They already had a major price increase recently on the Pros, which came *after* we scheduled our special runs, so we're still able to offer them at the old price. After they're gone, you can expect to see a price increase of $500+ per Pro Series guitar. No joke... Get them while you can at these prices.
