Asato revealed his new guitar in an Instagram Reel showing off the smooth tone of the new guitars.
“The first idea was to make “the other half” of my black T released in 2020,” Sato wrote, adding, “But during this long process I ended up falling in love with the sound of Goldfoils — and Suhr kindly accepted my request adding a second specs to this other half. A fine combination of modernity & vintage. I guarantee you will hear a lot of these guitars on my debut album that I’m currently working. Be patient… GREAT THINGS ARE COMING.”
The Mateus Asato Signature Suhr Classic T is available in ‘M.A.’ White, and boasts an Alder body with a Roasted Maple neck and Indian Rosewood fingerboard. It is available in two different configurations, the first offering a Classic T that comes with either Asato’s signature M.A.T. single coils and a Wilkinson 3-saddle bridge. The second configuration is decidedly more premium, offering two Lollar gold-foil pickups and a Gotoh 510.
The guitar has several visual evolutions that set it apart from previous Mateus models, including a custom neck shape, all-new gold pickguard and reversed headstock.
