Suhr Classic J Bass, Olympic White, Rosewood Fretboard


Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this Suhr Classic J Bass! We've been stocking a lot of Suhr guitars, but now, bass players, eat your hearts out.

It's a tried and true classic design... But refined. Everything about this has elegance and class while feeling effortless to play. It's extremely well built and sounds like the perfect balance of vintage tone and boutique build quality. The fretwork is immaculate and right out of the box, the action was nice and low. Having had the privilege of playing a few 60's J basses in the past, it's not an exaggeration to say that this is as close as you can get to duplicating that sound out of a brand new instrument. 

Not that we didn't expect this to be an incredible instrument, but it's always nice when something so simple can be so inspiring and elegant.
