If you are a fan of Thinline Tele-style instruments as we are here at Capital Guitars, then this instrument should interest you. Offered for sale is this lovely Alt T Pro built by John Suhr in 2017.
As much as I love solid body Tele-style guitars, turning it into a semi-hollow instrument makes a great instrument even better (IMHO). It clearly makes for a lighter weight guitar, but also adds a bit of woody resonance, character and warmth to the instrument's tone. Further, replacing the single coils with humbuckers, as is the case with the Alt T Pro, makes for a guitar with far more sonic capabilities.
The Alt T Pro has a chambered Alder body with what Suhr calls a "Trans Brown" finish (it looks more like transparent cherry to my eye). This one weighs just over 7 pounds ( 7 pounds, 1.4 ounces). It has a Maple neck with Suhr's 'Even C Medium' neck shape and depth measurement of .840" - .920". The Rosewood fretboard has a 9"-12" compound radius, medium stainless steel frets and 1.650" Tusq nut. It has a cut down Tele style bridge with brass saddles. The electronics include two Thornbucker humbucking pickups with master volume, master tone and a five-way pickup selector.
Anyone who has played a Fender Thinline will find this guitar immediately familiar in feel, although it could be argued that this guitar is built with better precision and has better playability. The tone is certainly better as evidenced by the included sound sample (https://soundcloud.com/capital-guitars/suhr-alt-t-pro-js4j5l-2017-ch1). The Suhr humbuckers sound terrific and allow for 335-like tones in pickup selector positions 1, 3 and 5. In positions 2 and 4 you get slightly more subdued single coil tones, making for an extremely versatile guitar.
This guitar is very good to excellent condition with just a few signs of play (see photos), including some light pick scratching on the black "shorty" pickguard, a few scratches near the input jack and a couple tiny dings on the back. This guitar has been played, but certainly not abused. The stainless steel frets look like new. It comes in its original Suhr gig bag with the spec sheet, fretboard protector and tools.
