What We Think

This guitar looks incredible and plays even better. Awesome neck feel and it's really comfortable to hold. Like all Suhrs, the combination of speed and tone result in one bad addition to your arsenal. Versatility and virtuosity are the adjectives that come to mind playing this one. 

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

The 2018 Classic S Antique features a new 60’s C vintage medium neck profile with indian rosewood or maple fingerboard and V63 single coils. The Classic S Antique retains many of the original specifications of the Classic Antique including the SSCII hum cancelling system, nitrocellulose finish, and stainless steel frets. Proprietary Suhr locking tuners and the Gotoh 510 tremolo provides superior tuning stability. 2018 also marks the introduction of Vintage Yellow, a new finish option for the Classic S Antique.
