Suhr Alt T Select Guitar, Rosewood, Black Gradient
The Suhr Alt-T Select guitars are a collaboration between Humbucker Music and Suhr and is available in very limited numbers. Only 20 will be available in total, and only 2 like this one.
As one of Suhr's largest dealers in the world, we designed this Custom Alt-T run to bring the craftsmanship and quality of Suhr's Alt-T Custom line of guitars to a more attractive price while providing the player with some of Suhr's most popular appointments.
The Suhr Alt-T Select features dual Thornbucker humbuckers, a roasted maple neck, and a Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge. 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. If this guitar were ordered outside this run, it would cost $3780.
Each guitar is built with a two-piece chambered alder body topped with beautiful flamed maple with an F-hole. 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 roasted maple and features a vintage 60's Medium C shape with a Rosewood fingerboard and medium stainless steel frets. The fingerboard has rolled edges and a 9"-12" compound radius, great for smooth bends. These appointments create a comfortable, fast feeling neck with long lasting playability.

About the Pickups in this Guitar
Suhr ThornBucker Pickups are designed out of a need for a no-compromise, consistent set of 50's Gibson PAF style pickups with none of the downsides associated with them. 50's Gibson PAF humbucker pickups have long since been coveted for their exceptional tone and ability to play both clean and dirty. With inspiration from Pete Thorn, Suhr has brought us the perfect set of PAF pickups, while also bringing them into the modern age. The ThornBucker pickups have 4 conductor wiring (ability to coil tap) and a variety of spacing options.
