This Andy Wood Signature Modern T is as smooth as your favorite whiskey - not to mention, it looks like the barrel it was aged in! This guitar is a modern take on the classic T design, with some different appointments like 24 frets, locking tuners, and a Modern Elliptical neck shape. Andy's signature Woodshed pickups sound amazing - There's plenty of bite in the bridge position without getting harsh, and the neck has improved clarity and a nice fatness to it. Also, they are dead quiet thanks to the amazing SSCII system. The roasted maple neck is smooth and fast, and the neck shape is very comfortable. It is definitely on the thin side, but does not feel odd in your hand and adds to the playability of the guitar. Andy plays a wide variety of music, so this guitar had to be extremely versatile, and Suhr nailed it. It can handle anything from chickin' pickin' to jazz to heavy rock. It's hard to put this one down once you get it in your hands! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
