What We Think

Weight: 8.15 lbs.

This Classic feels amazing, from it's perfectly contoured body to its roasted maple neck. Fire up the Thornbucker and pair of V70's and you'll quickly hear that Suhr knows a thing or two about making pickups as well as building guitars. This baby is the real deal!

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.
