Here's a Suhr that's too cool for school. Check out this beautiful JM with the amazing S90 pickups! This one's in a classic gloss Black with a tortoiseshell pickguard. The black matches with the knobs and pickup covers and gives the guitar a very classy look.
If you're looking at this, chances are you're already familiar with the impeccable reputation that Suhr have built for themselves over the years. Known for their high-end boutique hot-rodded guitars, the craftsmanship and playability of these guitars is unparalleled. If you're looking for something that will be reminiscent of that classic '60s offset you've always wanted, but want something even better than you ever imagined - well, you can stop your search right here.
The silent (that's right! No more messy 60-cycle hum!) single-coil circuitry allows you to retain 100% of that genuine P90 tone. The S90s sound absolutely incredible! They are punchy, spanky, and jangly with just a hint of aggressive midrange, just as you'd expect out of some of the best vintage P90s - and we especially love how they sound in this guitar format and scale length. But the beauty here is that the only noise coming out of your guitar will be music that you are creating. You can isolate any of the pickups without ever worrying about added hiss.
Add the supremely functional Suhr locking tuners, a fantastic Gotoh 510 2-point tremolo that is a great functional subsitute for the classic JM style tremolo, contoured heel and other contemporary appointments and improvements, this Classic JM is vintage sound meets modern playability all wrapped up in a beautiful package.
Who doesn’t love its 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 vibe-y 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.
Ideal for blues, blues-rock, classic rock and jazz, the S90 pickups have the power and richness of humbuckers coupled with the clarity and sparkle of classic single-coil pickups. Our Active SSCII system is included with any S90 equipped Classic JM Pro. It offers transparent noise cancelation and if the 9V battery dies in mid-performance, not to worry. The guitar will continue to function as normal, minus the noise cancelation.
