Suhr Classic S Paulownia Guitar, Roasted Maple Neck & Fretboard, Trans Sonic Blue
Music Store Live is proud to offer up this beautiful Suhr Classic S. Makers of some of the finest bolt-on guitars around, John Suhr and his crew keep a small and tightly run ship that pumps out meticulously built guitars (among other things) with a level care that is immediately evident.
The most notable thing with this one is the Paulownia body. The birdseye maple fretboard is definitely going to get your attention too, but that lightweight body is what all the excitement is about. In a world where everyone seems to be looking for lightweight instruments, you can only chamber a guitar so much to alleviate the weight before it starts to impact the tone and quality of the body. Paulownia, also known as empress wood, has a lot of similar tonal properties to swamp ash but at a fraction of the weight and doesn't need to be chambered at all, so you get the true sound of a solidbody guitar. It's bright and snappy without being brittle at the top end and overall will sound very familiar for most players.
This featherweight is a true champion in any ring! For hours and hours of comfortable playing without any worries, here's the solution to all of your problems.
