What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

This Custom Classic S Antique from Suhr is built from one of our favorite recipes with upgraded specs you won’t find on the standard Classic S Antique. We start with a Swamp Ash body for extra articulation and presence, and a very comfortable Roasted Maple Soft Medium V neck that fits effortlessly in the palm of your hand. Toss in a flatter 10”-14” Extra Roll neck radius for modern playing ease and finish it off with Surh’s ML (Mike Landau) single-coil pickups boasting focused clarity and note separation. Great looks, even better sounds, and all the comfort you could hope for, what else is there?

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

Suhr Classic Antique

Our customers have asked for an instrument that has a vintage look and feel, without sacrificing playability and tone. Enter the Classic Antique™. We designed this guitar to ensure it preserves the spirit of a vintage instrument while performing like a Suhr. Impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail ensure that every neck pocket is tight, every fret is perfectly dressed, and that every instrument is ready for peak performance before leaving our facility.

The nitro-cellulose lacquer finish and our proprietary antiquing process make each Classic Antique™ feel like it has been loved for years. The Classic Antique now includes: our innovative SSCII (Silent Single-Coil) hum cancelling system, a vintage tinted nitrocellulose neck with stainless steel frets, and a Maple fingerboard option.
