What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

An absolutely stunning example of the Suhr custom shop hard at work. Sometimes we're fortunate enough to take in a used piece that we find so delightful, we run right out and order one just like it! The features and tonewoods on this guitar are absolutely to die for. The roasted Swamp Ash body in Vintage Natural has a killer look and sound. The figuring on the roasted maple neck is on par with some of our favorites from Suhr. The subtle checking and relic work on the Antique job are beautiful. Such a lively, effortlessly playable, Classic S, what a dreamboat!

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.
