Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

CLASSIC PROTM
CLASSIC LOOKS. MODERN PERFORMANCE
 
When our customers asked for an instrument with all the tone and playability of our Classic Antique, without the antiquing - we listened. The Classic Pro marries vintage design with modern improvements resulting in an instrument that is capable of producing iconic tones while retaining the build quality, features and playability you’ve come to expect from Suhr.
 
TONE WOODS

ALDER - One of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960's, is grown all over the world. Alder is medium to light in weight with soft tight pores. It has a light tan color and can sometimes exhibit large swirling grain patterns and rings. Alder is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows. Alder is used extensively for guitar bodies because of its light weight and its full sound.

MAPLE - Sourced mostly from the Northern United States and Canada and is commonly used to make necks. Maple has a classic tone, strong in the midrange with a sweet spanky high end.

INDIAN ROSEWOOD - Being one of the most popular fingerboard woods for guitars, Indian Rosewood is usually sourced from either India or Bangladesh. It has a thick grain pattern with colors ranging from brown-black, purple, to red-brown. Indian Rosewood is particularly favored by blues and rock players for it’s thick, sweet tone. It has an ideal balance of fat lows, warm mids and a sparkling high end presence.

NECK

Each Classic Pro is equipped with our Even C Medium neck profile. Rolled edges and a 9-12” compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.

NECK FINISH

The Quartersawn Maple neck is tinted, then finished in satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.

FRETS

 

Every Classic Pro includes medium stainless steel frets, which offers silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Utilizing the PLEK process on each instrument guarantees the best possible string action, ensures optimized playability and eliminates intonation problems.

ELECTRONICS

The Classic Pro™ is available in both S/S/S and H/S/S pickup configurations.

SSCII - Our proprietary passive 60-cycle hum reduction system that has no impact on tone, no batteries to change - just transparent noise reduction.

SSV - The SSV is a versatile pickup that combines the warmth of a vintage humbucker with increased clarity and definition. It is wound hotter for more output, increased sustain and a sweet midrange response.

V70 - V70’s are exceptionally dynamic and respond to every nuance of your playing. Their tone is balanced with tight snappy lows and shimmering highs that cut ever so sweetly without sounding harsh. Every V70 pickup is hand-built, precisely wound (using our proprietary winding process) and features: plain enamel wire, specially formulated Alnico V magnets and vintage correct gray fiber bottoms. The V70 also incorporates a modified staggered pole piece design to provide an even magnetic field required by instruments with a flatter neck radius and today’s string gauges.

BODY FINISH

 

The Classic Pro uses our “Thin Skin” Urethane finish. Our finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection, beauty, and tone. Great care is taken to ensure that the thinnest possible layers of finish are applied. This allows the wood to resonate freely while still providing ample protection. Our state of the art equipment, experienced staff and uncompromising quality control ensures that no instrument leaves our facility until it meets our demanding standards.

HARDWARE

TUNERS - The Classic Pro is equipped with staggered locking tuners which provide improved tuning stability and eliminate the need for a traditional string tree.

BRIDGE - The appointed Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge features dual steel knife edge pivot points to provide greater functionality and years of trouble free performance. The 510’s tremolo block was designed to allow the strings to contact the saddle without touching the block as it passes through which increases sustain and tuning stability.
