Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this Suhr Classic JM Custom Shop 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!

Earlier in 2017, we had the opportunity to take a trip to the Suhr factory and hand select all of the woods to be used for a select run of custom shop guitars for our inventory. The first contestant has entered the ring... and it's looking like a real winner! This guitar is absolutely gorgeous from top to bottom. A beautifully matched top and figured fretboard make this one very easy on the eyes. The gold hardware adds a nice accent to it all.

But how does she play? The word "flawless" comes to mind.

The neck is a slim profile and it is lightning fast. The SSV and SSH Plus pickups are a classic combination for Suhr that provide a bit of edge and a whole heck of a lot of versatility. If you're looking for classic twang, you can absolutely get that. If you're looking to rock out with a bunch of gain and overdrive, well this baby can easily handle any of that as well. The notes remain clear, distinct, and articulate in clean or distorted tones and the extra bit of brightness that the swamp ash body adds (compared to the alder used in Suhr's Classic JM Pros) really pairs well with the warmth of the Pau Ferro fretboard.

One of the coolest things about this guitar is how responsive it is. The notes seem to just come alive and the response is extremely fast. You can feel the snap that this guitar has and everything is tight, focused, and punchy. Though a bit difficult to explain, this guitar has an extremely fast reaction time. The attack of the notes is strong and the sustain lasts, seemingly, forever. Even wailing away on the tremolo, the sustain lasts for days and the intonation never suffers.

This is a true masterpiece and work of art... An extremely playable work of art that sounds like a choir of angels (but like... badass angels, of course)!

Manufacturer's Description

Who doesn’t love its big, bold, sweeping shape? While giving the nod back to another era, the Suhr Classic JM starts with a sleeker, more refined body shape and adds enhancements to playability previously unattainable to the guitarist interested in a truly vibe-y guitar.

This custom shop Classic JM offers a Gotoh 510 Tremolo that sounds great, and stays in tune with excellent intonation. SSV and SSH Plus pickups that straddle vintage and modern vibes with ease. The swamp ash body adds some brightness and high-end spank while the pau ferro fretboard adds warmth to the overall sound. Gold hardware accents the guitar from top to bottom.

Overall Condition

This Suhr Classic JM Custom is brand new, in pristine mint condition, with absolutely no nicks, scratches, or blemishes of any kind and is being sold by an authorized dealer. Pictures are of the exact guitar you'll receive.

Our in house guitar tech has inspected, tested, set up, and cleaned all of our instruments on site prior to shipping. All of our instruments are guaranteed to be fully functional upon arrival
