In the spirit of the original, the Classic T Antique™ was developed to meet the demands of players who asked for an instrument that preserves classic tone and design, while improving on the limitations of vintage instruments. The T style guitar has long been the go-to workhorse for many guitarists. The new 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.

Crafted especially for vintage feel and tone with modern playability, the 2015 Classic Antique series embodies the best of Suhr's builds. The Classic Antique series is John Suhr's response to the gigging musician's need for professional-grade instruments at an affordable price point, with the most requested specs of Suhr's catalogue applied to incredible 'S' and 'T' style guitars.

John Suhr’s ‘T’ style guitar, like all aspects of his brand, are rooted in tradition. The Classic T Antique series has taken the most notable characteristics of 50’s ‘T’ style guitars that gained so much notoriety, and applied a few modern twists for exceptional playability. It all starts with the Swamp Ash body, a common staple of vintage ‘T’ styles. The tonewood has a natural brightness and crisp clarity that can only be attributed to itself, with awesome natural presence. With the capability to cut through any mix, and the vintage mojo that can nail just about any clean tone imaginable - you’ll be hard pressed to find a more impressive build of a vintage tone machine like this one!
