Description

The Suhr Alt T is a thinline Tele-style guitar for the modern era - a bit of a wolf-in-sheep's-clothing scenario. Classic Tele vibe and looks, but ultra-refined build quality and playability. 22 stainless frets, 9-12" compound radius, Wilkinson 3-saddle chopped T bridge, Tusq nut, dual Suhr SSV pickups driven by a 5-way switch...this ain't your grandpa's Tele, as they say. 

Suhr guitars are legendary for their effortless playability and this Alt T showcases these attributes brilliantly. The ultra-comfortable '60s C "Vintage Medium" neck carve (.830-.950 & 1.650" nut) is finished in a satin finish that just defines luxury. It's about as comfortable, effortless, and rewarding as you can hope a guitar to be, and from the Suhr's we've played, that's totally the point.

Tonally this thing is a monster. Huge, sustaining overdriven tones with all the humbucker midrange and punch you could want, but with clarity and enough switching options via a 5-way to keep it interesting and versatile. While it definitely doesn't twang like a more traditional single-coil loaded Tele, you can definitely pull enough snappy, punchy twang out of it to cover any alt-country or pop country tunes your band covers. 

Condition: Near mint. 

This Alt T is a killer Tele-style guitar for modern-leaning players who are looking for effortless playability, a wide array of tones, but don't want to sacrifice a Tele's beautifully classic looks. Priced with Suhr Deluxe gig bag, spec sheet, and wrenches.
