Player's Perspective

We're proud to present this gorgeous Suhr Classic S HSS in a classic Olympic White with Indian Rosewood fingerboard combination!

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 old-school S-type you had back in the day but want it to play and sound like a completely revitalized high-end instrument - 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 single coil sound without any of the noise. The V60LP pickups in the neck and middle are very much voiced to replicate vintage 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 is vintage S-style sound meets modern playability.

Details

The Classic S features a 60’s C vintage standard neck profile with indian rosewood or maple fingerboard and V60LP single coils. The Classic S retains many of the original specifications of the Classic Pro including the SSCII hum cancelling system and stainless steel frets. Proprietary Suhr locking tuners and the Gotoh 510 tremolo provides superior tuning stability.

  • The Classic features a Maple neck with your choice of Maple or Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is tinted and finished with our satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
  • The Classic S is equipped with our 60's Vintage Standard neck profile. Rolled edges and a 9″-12” compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.
  • Stainless steel frets offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. 
  • The contoured heel of the Classic 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 of our neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.
  • This is the standard vintage shape that many of us 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.
  • Our 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 our 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.
  • 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.
  • Equipped with staggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.
