NOTE: The Suhr Alt-T guitar is essentially the same guitar as the Alt-T Pro, but with a few changes. The new 2018 spec uses a different neck carve, pickups, and all come with a Swamp Ash body wood. The new carve is called the 60's C Vintage Medium. The pickups used in the new 2018 spec Alt-T are the SSV pickups as opposed to the Thornbuckers.
The Suhr Alt T Pro is a newer model from Suhr that features a dual humbucker deluxe thinline tele body, but with all the superior refinements and upgrades that come from a Suhr guitar. Each Suhr Alt T goes through the same renowned individual setup process that $10-15k Suhr Custom guitars go through. For the money, these guitars simply CANNOT be beat.
Each Suhr Alt T is built with a two-piece Swamp Ash body. Alder is known for its rich sound qualities well as its lighter overall weight. Suhr takes great care in finishing the body with an ultra "Thin Skin" urethane finish, allowing for the wood to resonate freely while still providing plenty of protection to ensure the longevity of these guitars.
The neck is made from quartersawn tinted maple and features a vintage 60's Medium C shape with medium stainless steel frets. The frets feature rolled edges and a 10"-14" compound radius, great for smooth bends. These appointments create a comfortable, fast feeling neck with long lasting playability.

About the Pickups in this Guitar
If you need authentic vintage humbucker sounds, there is no need to look any further than Suhr's SSV humbucking pickups. They have a broad sonic aperture with very little compression, making for a dynamic, vintage output humbucker. The SSV Neck is a versatile pickup that combines the warmth of a vintage humbucker with increased clarity and definition. The SSV Bridge is similar to the SSV neck in tone, but wound hotter for more output, increased sustain and a sweet midrange response.
Magnet: AlNiCo V, DC Resistance: 9K ohms for bridge position, 8K ohms for neck position, 4-conductor wire
The Alt T incorporates a 5-way switch with the dual humbuckers giving you a wide variety of tones. The pickup positions are the following:
1) Bridge Humbucker
2) Bridge Split and Neck Split Combined (more useful than bridge split!)
3) Bridge Humbucker and Neck Humbucker Combined
4) Neck Split
5) Neck Humbucker
