What We Think

Comfy neck, strong tone! The SSV Humbucker at the bridge gives you just a little bit more oomph for playing rock rhythm while still giving you the sparkle and clarity you come to expect from S-style guitars. The indian rosewood board feels like heaven under your fingers.

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

The 2018 Classic S features a new 60’s C vintage standard neck profile with indian rosewood or maple fingerboard and V60LP single coils. The Classic S retains many of the original specifications of the Classic Pro including the SSCII hum cancelling system 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.
