Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this Suhr Classic S Antique guitar! We've been hearing from you for a few years now that you'd love to see us carrying Suhr guitars. Well, we've listened!

Known for their high-end boutique hot-rodded guitars, the craftsmanship, and playability of these guitars is unparalleled. If you're looking for something that will be reminiscent of that Strat you had back in the day but want it to play and sound like it was put together with some of today's finest guitar builders... Well, you can stop your search right here! This guitar has a vintage look and sound to go along with it's superior build quality and increadibly easy playability. The nitro finish is checked and relic'd and the neck is tinted to complete the vintage aesthetics.

The SSCII noise reduction system gives you silent circuitry (that's right! No more messy 60-cycle hum when soloing a single coil pickup) while still preserving a true single coil tone. The compound radius fretboard makes the playability effortless and stainless steel frets ensure that you can own this guitar for decades without having to worry about getting it re-fretted. The 60's inspired neck shape feels extremely comfortable. It's not toothpick-thin but also is far from being chunky. It's a true playground for your fretting hand and will feel instantly familiar.

This guitar can really do it all. It sounds great clean but really starts to shine as you add a bit of dirt to the tone. This axe truly rocks!
