Suhr Classic S Metallic is a Limited Edition for the year 2020, featuring four exciting new metallic finishes: Indigo, Copper Firemist, Champagne, and Brandywine. The neck sports a gorgeous roasted flame maple back with an Indian rosewood fingerboard. The neck profile is an even C Slim with a satin finish, making for a comfortable yet speedy feel.
The Suhr Classic S offers 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.
Stainless steel jumbo frets (.057"x.110") offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation. 10″-14” compound fingerboard radius offers a comfortable shape.
This Suhr Classic S features the HSS configuration with V60LP single coil pickups on the neck and middle positions. The V60LP pickup is wound using a proprietary winding process that replicates the hand-wound pattern of some early-60’s single-coil pickups which have a natural roll off on the top end, imparting sweeter and rounder highs. Bridge pickups is a versatile Suhr SSH with special alnico 5 magnets. It offers versatile, warm sounds.
Also featured is Suhr’s 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.
The guitar is also equipped with staggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.
This Limited Edition model has a Champagne metallic paint finish and includes a Suhr hard case.
