Another stunning example of John Suhr's quality. Amazing playability and tone. The active electronics provide a wide range of tonal options while retaining punch and clarity! This bass took a year to deliver, just so you know how rare it is for us to have one in stock for you!

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

Introduced in 2003, the Suhr Classic J is based on the iconic electric bass designs of the 1960's.

This shape has helped define the electric bass guitar for over half a century. The Classic J’s sleek frame, asymmetrical body shape, and slim vintage neck profile make for an instrument that combines vintage style with modern improvements.

The Classic J is available with either our Classic J Vintage or Classic J Humphrey pickups. When coupled with our Classic J preamp, the Classic J can effortlessly shift between genres with the turn of a knob.

From the thundering pulse of Rock, to the punchy growl of Jazz Fusion, to the percussive slap of Funk, the Classic J is always the right choice.
