Suhr Pro Series S1 Electric Guitar, Swamp Ash Body, Rosewood Fingerboard - Trans Red
The popular S1 model features a Swamp Ash body, plain grain hard rock Eastern Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard, the Even C Slim neck shape, the Gotoh 510 bridge, Sperzel locking tuners, and the SSH+ humbucker in the bridge position and the ML Standard single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions. It is a Standard Pro without fancy looking tops and mother of toilet-seat pickguard. The Plek fret-leveling job is a standard feature on the Pro Series guitars just like on Suhr's Custom guitars.
Whether on stage or hanging on the wall, the Standard Pro is designed to inspire. From the moment you pick it up, the Standard Pro comes alive in your hands. The scraped binding, white pearl pickguard, crisp body contours and side input jack take this popular body shape to new levels of refinement and versatility.
IMPECCABLE QUALITY, LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE
The Standard Pro features a quarter-sawn Maple neck with Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is finished with our satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
EVEN C SLIM (.800″-.880″)
The Standard Pro is equipped with our Even C Slim profile. Rolled edges and a 10-14” compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.
HEAVY STAINLESS STEEL (.051″ x .108″)
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 countoured heel of the Standard 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.
STANDARD BODY SHAPE
A sleek take on the Classic design. The body is slightly downsized when compared to a Classic. It has a sharper radius on the edges and slightly longer horns to give it a modern, yet classy look.
The Alder and Flame Maple top has a fat, well-balanced tone that produces smooth sounds without any hard edges. Favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows.
Great care is taken to ensure that the thinnest possible layers of finish are applied. Our finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection, beauty, and tone. This allows the wood to resonate freely while still providing ample protection.
Scraped binding allows for the natural maple to be seen along the edge of the top wood. This painstaking and detailed process accentuates the beauty of the body shape and adds elegance to the design.
HARDWARE & ELECTRONICS
The combination of ML and SSH+ pickups offer balanced sparkle in the neck and middle positions, high output punch with fat harmonics in the bridge position, and chimey quack in the combo positions.
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.
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.
