What do you get when you update tan iconic time-honored design with some stealth modern appointments? The best of both worlds! The Classic T Antique starts with the original recipe for success- swamp ash body, vintage neck and body shapes, nitrocellulose lacquer finish- but spices things up to bring an iconic design up to 21st century standards. 

The maple neck features a comfortably chunky 60s C Vintage Medium profile (.83" deep at the first fret; .95" deep at the 12th) with a 1.65" nut width, 9-12" compound fingerboard radius and 22 perfectly crowned medium stainless steel frets. The body features a contoured neck heel to make reaching the last few frets a little easier. The old-school 3-saddle bridge features compensated brass saddles while the headstock conceals locking tuners to keep everything playing in tune all the way up the neck. The passive SSCII system keeps the Alnico 5 magnet single coil pickups dead quiet under any conditions. 

This guitar weighs in at 7 pounds 12 ounces and has every bit of bite, twang and snarl one could hope for. Whether playing through a clean amp or pouring on the gain the Classic T Antique cuts without lacking body. It plays like an absolute dream. If you've been looking for a guitar to bring playability and tone to the next level but wouldn't look out of place at a Springsteen concert or on the Opry then this is the guitar you've been waiting for.
