We're proud to present another beautiful Suhr Classic S Antique HSS, this time in Sonic Blue with Indian rosewood fingerboard! A timeless color combination and look for an S-style guitar, this Antique also has a nitro finish and just the right amount of aging to make the guitar feel worn-in and perfect in your hands.
If you're looking at this instrument, 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 old-school S-type you had back in the day but want something that has evolved and been improved upon with today’s greatest guitar-building techniques - well, you can stop your search right here.
The silent (that's right! No more noisy 60-cycle hum!) single-coil circuitry allows you to retain 100% of that genuine single coil sound without any of the noise. The V63 pickups, made with the same Alnico V magnets sourced for real vintage pickups, are voiced for authentic 1963 “S” tones and they do an amazing job of recreating that sound. 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. The SSV in the bridge position is solidly a "PAF"-style humbucker optimized for a bolt-on guitar context, and it has just the right amount of warmth and brightness to rock hard whilst still blending very well with the single-coils.
Add the supremely functional Suhr locking tuners, fantastic Gotoh 510 2-point tremolo, contoured heel and other contemporary appointments and improvements, this Classic Antique is vintage sound meets modern playability wrapped up in a gorgeous package.
The Suhr Classic marries vintage design with modern improvements resulting in an instrument that is capable of producing iconic tones while retaining the build quality, features and playability you’ve come to expect from Suhr. This Classic S Antique features a quartersawn maple neck and rosewood fingerboard that is tinted and finished with Suhr's thin nitro lacquer finish. The neck has the addition of a contoured heel where the neck bolts on for easy access to all the frets. The unique blend of locking tuners, a high performance bridge, V63 pickups and Suhr's proprietary SSCII noise reduction system creates the perfect combination of vintage tones with modern performance.
The Classic S Antique features a 60’s C vintage medium neck profile with indian rosewood or maple fingerboard and V63 single coils. The Classic S Antique retains many of the original specifications of the Classic Antique including the SSCII hum cancelling system, nitrocellulose finish, and stainless steel frets. Proprietary Suhr locking tuners and the Gotoh 510 tremolo provides superior tuning stability.
