Suhr Mateus Asato Classic T Black

SKU: 1-SL19185

The signature guitar of a contemporary guitar legend!

Mateus Asato is one of the leading guitarists of his generation. With his awe-inspiring technique, musicality and sound, he has established himself alongside superstars such as Jessie J and Bruno Mars. It is therefore not surprising that he has joined forces with John Suhr and his team for his weapons of choice . Because if there is anyone who knows every nook, cranny and crevice of the guitar and how solid an instrument should be, it is John! This Signature guitar is based on the Classic T model. This means that you are dealing with a T-Style guitar that combines the best of the sixties with modern upgrades, such as a comfortable compound radius and Locking Tuners. Mateus' input is first found in the specially designed pickups, which are perfectly balanced and have exactly the right output and EQ characteristics. This T-Style transitions effortlessly from a strict twang to a smooth, singing lead sound, depending on how you approach the guitar. Insanely expressive! Mateus was also extensively involved in the design of the neck, and here we opted for a very beautiful Roasted Birdseye Maple design with a nice smooth profile. This neck is perfect for legato and slides; thanks to the roasted maple you feel just enough resistance. The whole is finished in an über-chic Gloss Black finish with gold hardware. Do you want to become as expressive and versatile as Mateus Asato Himself? Then look no further, because this signature Suhr has everything you need! Includes luxury hardshell case.
