Suhr Classic Pro Electric Guitar, Indian Rosewood Fingerboard, SSS, SSCII - Sherwood Green Metallic
SUHR CLASSIC PRO
When our customers asked for an instrument with all the tone and playability of our Classic Antique, without the antiquing – we listened. The Classic Pro 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.
IMPECCABLE QUALITY, LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE
The Classic Pro features a quarter-sawn 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.
CLASSIC BODY SHAPE
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.
EVEN C MEDIUM (.840″-.920″)
The Classic Pro is equipped with our 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 of our neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.
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.
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 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.
SSS PICKUP CONFIGS
Configuration: SSS with V70 single coil pickups, in the bridge position. V70’s are exceptionally dynamic and respond to every nuance of your playing. Their tone is balanced with tight snappy lows and shimmering highs that cut ever so sweetly without sounding harsh. Configuration include 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.
