What We Think

Weight: 8.15 Lbs


For me, this one has the same sort of appeal that some of the classic cars of the '50s have. Sleek, almost space-age lines and curves - but what really ties it together is the two-tone hybrid headstock matching the body finish and the pickguard. Wonderful!

This guitar is incredibly comfortable and ergonomic - every curve and every line seems to have created a guitar that feels right at home in your lap. Pairing that up with the impeccable build quality and playability that Suhr is known for, this one is a real stunner. Don't let it pass you by - this one won't last long!

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

Who doesn’t love it’s big, bold, sweeping shape? While giving the nod back to another era, the Suhr Classic JM starts with a sleeker, more refined body shape and adds enhancements to playability previously unattainable to the guitarist interested in a truly vibey guitar.
 
The Classic JM Pro offers options for a Gotoh 510 Tremolo that sounds great, and stays in tune with excellent intonation. Or, if you prefer, you can have a recessed TonePros tune-o-matic bridge with strings that pass through the body for super resonant performance. We also offer your choice of either two huge sounding but hum free S90 pickups or two Suhr SSV humbucking pickups with a low profile three-way pickup selector.
 
The Classic JM Pro features a quarter-sawn Maple neck with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is finished with our satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
 
60’s C Vintage Standard (.810″-.930″)
The Classic JM Pro is equipped with our comfortable 60’s C Vintage Standard neck profile. Rolled edges and a 10-14” compound fingerboard radius compliment the vintage style back taper to create a high-performance playing surface.
 
MEDIUM STAINLESS STEEL (.055″ x .90″)
Stainless steel frets offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation.
 
The unique contoured cutaway and heel allows for easier access to the upper register. For optimum tone and stability, the neck joint must not be too tight or too loose, therefore all of our neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.
