ANDY WOOD SIGNATURE GUITAR
IMPECCABLE QUALITY, LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE
The Andy Wood Signature guitar features a Roasted Maple neck and fingerboard. The neck is finished with our satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
MODERN ELLIPTICAL (.780″-.830″)
Andy’s Modern T is equipped with our Modern Elliptical neck profile. Rolled edges and a 16” radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.
JUMBO STAINLESS STEEL (.057″ x .110″)
Stainless steel frets offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation.
The unique contoured cutaway and heel allows for easier access to the upper register. For optimum tone and stability, the neck joint must not be too tight or too loose, therefore all of our neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.
MODERN T BODY SHAPE
The Modern T combines the Classic T shape, with the 24 fret Modern neck.
SWAMP ASH BODY
Swamp Ash, a popular body wood in the 1950’s, is highly resonant and offers a slightly scooped midrange.
Prior to the satin finish being applied, the body is torched by hand, burning away part of the grain in the wood. The result is a unique feeling guitar, where the grain is felt through the satin finish.
The SSCII is our proprietary silent single coil system. The SSCII is installed inside the body of the guitar and works with traditional single coil pickups. It reduces 60 cycle hum and has no impact on tone, no batteries to change – just transparent noise reduction.
HARDWARE & ELECTRONICS
The versatile HH pickup configuration features a 5-way mega switch, two Thornbucker pickups, a push/pull for parallel bridge, and a 510 tremolo.
The Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge features dual steel knife edge pivot points to provide greater functionality and years of trouble free performance. The 510’s steel block increases sustain and tuning stability.
Thornbucker pickups are born out of a desire to give guitarists a humbucking pickup set that has all of the best attributes of the coveted 50’s PAF pickups… with none of the downsides.
A push/pull tone knob switches the bridge humbucker from series to parallel, reducing the output and brightening the tone, similar to a single coil.
WILKINSON 3 SADDLE
The Wilkinson compensated bridge with brass saddles was chosen for its superior tuning stability, sustain, and intonation performance while maintaining the classic look and vibe of a true vintage instrument.
The red Andy Wood signature model features Andy’s signature Woodshed Classic T single coil pickups and the SSCII system for single coil tone without the hum.
SUHR LOCKING TUNERS
Equipped with staggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.
Every Andy Wood model has his signature laser engraved on the back of the headstock.
