What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

Pretty "Rare" as you don't see too many Suhrs with the Drip Finish !!!

Loaded with Lollar Pickups and 2 push/pull switches for some out of this world versatility.

If you prefer more straight ahead tones, leave the pots pushed in.

She also comes with the original Suhr Pickups :)

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

Our customers asked for an instrument that had a vintage look and feel but did not sacrifice playability and tone. Enter the Classic Antique™. We designed this guitar to ensure it preserved 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 each instrument plays its best before leaving our facility. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish and our proprietary antiquing process make each Classic Antique™ feel like it has been loved for years.
