Player's Perspective

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

If you're looking at this, chances are you're already familiar with the impeccable reputation that Suhr have built for themselves over the years. 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! Unlike it's Classic Antique predecessor, this Classic skips the relic process to keep the guitar looking brand new and to keep a few extra bucks in your wallet.

The silent (that's right! No more messy 60-cycle hum when soloing a pickup) single coil circuitry allows you to retain 100% of that genuine single coil sound without any of the noise. The V60LP pickups are very much voiced to replicate vintage tones and they do an amazing job of recreating that sound. But the beauty here is that the only noise coming out of your guitar will be music that you are creating. You can solo any of the pickups without ever worrying about added hiss. Old school sound meets modern playability all wrapped up in a classy-as-heck pretty package!

Manufacturer's Specifics

When our customers asked for an instrument with all the tone and playability of our Classic Antique, without the antiquing – we listened. The Classic marries vintage design with modern improvements resulting in an instrument that is capable of producing iconic tones while retaining the build quality, features and playability you’ve come to expect from Suhr. The Classic features a quarter-sawn Maple neck with your choice of Maple or Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is tinted and finished with our satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture. This is the standard vintage shape that many of us grew up with and has the addition of a contoured heel where the neck bolts on for easy access to all the frets. The unique blend of locking tuners, a high performance bridge, and our proprietary SSCII noise reduction system creates the perfect combination of vintage tones with modern performance.

NECK PROFILE - 60's Vintage Standard (.810″-.930″)
The Classic S is equipped with our 60's Vintage Standard neck profile. Rolled edges and a 9″-12” compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.
 
FRETS - MEDIUM STAINLESS STEEL (.055″ x .090″)
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.

CONTOURED HEEL
The contoured heel of the Classic Pro 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.

TONE WOODS
Alder is one of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960’s and is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows.

BODY FINISH
Our finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection, beauty, and tone. Great care is taken to ensure that the thinnest possible layers of finish are applied. This allows the wood to resonate freely while still providing ample protection.

SSCII Equipped
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.

GOTOH 510
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.

HSS or SSS PICKUP CONFIGS
Available in two configurations: SSS with V60LP single coil pickups, or HSS with an SSV humbucker in the bridge position. The V60LP pickup is wound using a proprietary winding process that replicates the hand-wound pattern of some early-60’s single-coil pickups which have a natural roll off on the top end, imparting sweeter and rounder highs. Both configurations include our SSCII noise reduction system.

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.
