This Classic Pro features a quarter-sawn Maple neck with Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is tinted and finished with a satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
EVEN C MEDIUM (.840″-.920″)
The Classic Pro is equipped with an Even C Medium profile. Rolled edges and a 9″-12” compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.
MEDIUM STAINLESS STEEL (.055″ x .090″)
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 contoured heel of the Classic Pro 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 the neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.
CLASSIC BODY SHAPE
This is the standard vintage shape that many grew up with and has the addition of a contoured heel where the neck bolts on for easy access to all the frets.
Alder is one of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960’s and is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows.
The finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection, beauty, and tone. Great care is taken to ensure that the thinnest possible layers of finish are applied. This allows the wood to resonate freely while still providing ample protection.
The SSCII is a proprietary silent single coil system. The SSCII is installed inside the body of the guitar and works with traditional single coil pickups. It reduces 60 cycle hum and has no impact on tone, no batteries to change – just transparent noise reduction.
HARDWARE & ELECTRONICS
The unique blend of locking tuners, a high performance bridge, and our proprietary SSCII noise reduction system creates the perfect combination of vintage tones with modern performance.
The Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge features dual steel knife edge pivot points to provide greater functionality and years of trouble free performance. The 510’s steel block increases sustain and tuning stability.
HSS PICKUP CONFIGURATION
This guitar features an HSS pickup configuration with an SSV humbucker in the bridge position. The V60LP pickup is wound using a proprietary winding process that replicates the hand-wound pattern of some early-60’s single-coil pickups which have a natural roll off on the top end, imparting sweeter and rounder highs. Aso includes an SSCII noise reduction system.
SUHR LOCKING TUNERS
Equipped with staggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.
