The Select Classic T Roasted Neck guitars are a collaboration between Humbucker Music and Suhr and is available in very limited numbers.
As one of Suhr's largest dealers in the world, we designed this Custom Classic T run to bring the craftsmanship and quality of Suhr's Classic Custom line of guitars to a more attractive price while providing the player with some of Suhr's most popular appointments.
This run has only subtle differences from the Classic T production models. Essentially, it's a Classic T with a Roasted Maple neck upgrade. While there's certainly nothing wrong with standard maple, roasted maple is known to be more stable and lighter in weight, providing more sustain to your notes. It also has a visually darker aesthetic to it giving a more aged look. We also chose to use both aged green and tortoise shell pickguards depending on body color.
These Select Classic T Roasted guitars feature low noise Suhr Classic T pickups with SSCII electronics, stainless steel frets and modern hardware like Suhr Locking Tuners and a compensated brass saddle Wilkinson bridge.
And of course, each Classic T Roasted Select goes through the same renowned individual setup process that $10-15k Suhr Custom guitars go through, including the PLEK process. For the money, these guitars simply CANNOT be beat.
Each is built with a two-piece select alder body. Alder is known for its rich low and mid-range tonal qualities as well as its lighter overall weight, especially when roasted. 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 and fingerboard is made from beautiful roasted maple and features a vintage 60's standard shape with medium stainless steel frets. The frets feature 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's Classic T pickups are the result of their extensive research into what made the pickups of Telecasters so special and renowned for their unmistakable sonic quality heard on pop and rock music records of the past half-century.
Their Classic T Bridge pickup retains the twang and the bite of the best vintage Tele pickups while doing away with piercing or harsh highs that are common in pickups of this type.
The Classic T Pickups are 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.
