I've been planning for quite some time to add a T type guitar to my collection, and I've narrowed down my options to 3 (Suhr) models in my price range : Classic T, Classic T Antique and Paulownia.
Aside from the differences between Antique and Non Antique (I like the light aging but I'm kind of scared of the playing feeling with the neck finish, never tried it and heard that the nitro can give some stickiness to it...) I'm slightly attracted to the specs of the Paulownia (Roasted Maple Neck on top of the list, dark grey color at the bottom) but I struggle to find feedbacks on this particular setup.
To be frank, I've heard nothing but praises about Suhr guitars, hence my shortlist (this will be my most expensive shovel and I expect it to become my number 1, for gigs and at home) but :
- living in France/EU, we have limited options as far as Suhr guitars are concerned (and between lockdowns and stock shortage, test drive may not be an option) and this particular model is available at Thomann (cannot explain the huge price difference between the Classic T and the Paulownia on the website though)
- I read/heard someone saying that his Classic T Paulownia (the guy's specific model) was a bit muddy, too muddy to be used (and he had to return it). I imagine that this may be an individual case but it's one of the only comments I could find.
Anyway, if some of you have one, tried one, had one, I would be really grateful if you could give me your comments/feedback about it. Even though buying a Suhr guitar never seems to be risky, if it's not conclusive I would play it safe and stick to the Classic T!
Sorry for the loooong message and thanks a lot in advance guys!
