What We Think

Weight: 7.95 lbs.

Truly one of the most spectacular Suhr guitars I've ever seen! Check out that black headstock and beautiful roasted woods...mmm roasting. You seriously won't believe how good the neck feels on this guitar.

It's so beautiful I don't know if I'd be able to take it out of the house but I also wouldn't want to be away from it so I guess I would just have to stay home and play this guitar all the time. It's got this awesome percussive pop/snap to it...extremely fast and comfortable for legato or hard picking and strumming. This one has it all folks!

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

The Suhr Classic is a nod to the iconic double cutaway shape that has embodied Rock and Blues music for decades. The Classic retains this vintage vibe while adding modern improvements to meet the needs of today’s players.

The improved headstock design enhances tuning stability, eliminating the need for a string tree. The optional side input jack moves the instrument cable out of the way for effortless tremolo use. Frets are Plek leveled and hand dressed for superior playability.

From vintage quack to grinding blues to soaring lead tones, the Suhr Classic delivers every time.
