If you're looking at this gorgeous limited-edition Classic S Paulownia, 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 most notable thing with this one is the Paulownia body. The birdseye maple fretboard is definitely going to get your attention too, but that lightweight body is what all the excitement is about. In a world where everyone seems to be looking for lightweight instruments, you can only chamber a guitar so much to alleviate the weight before it starts to impact the tone and quality of the body. Paulownia, also known as empress wood, has a lot of similar tonal properties to swamp ash but at a fraction of the weight and doesn't need to be chambered at all, so you get the true sound of a solidbody guitar. It's bright and snappy without being brittle at the top end and overall will sound very familiar for most players.
This featherweight is a true champion in any ring! For hours and hours of comfortable playing without any worries, here's the solution to all of your problems.
