Suhr Classic JM is a dream come true for guitarists who like that classic body type and vintage sound, but also want a balanced playing experience with updated electronics for more versatility.
Who doesn’t love its big, bold, sweeping shape? While giving the nod back to another era, the Suhr Classic JM starts with a sleeker, more refined body shape and adds enhancements to playability previously unattainable to the guitarist interested in a truly vibe-y guitar. The Classic JM features subtle, yet substantial tweaks to a classic body shape. The overall size and perimeter of the body has been tweaked and slightly downsized from the original version to create an instrument that feels incredibly comfortable, ergonomic, and familiar.
The Suhr Classic JM has an alder body, 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.
Suhr Classic JM also features a Maple neck with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is finished with satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture. The Classic JM is equipped with a comfortable 60’s C Vintage Standard neck profile (.810″-.930″). The unique contoured cutaway and heel 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.
Rolled edges and a 10-14” compound fingerboard radius compliment the vintage style back taper to create a high performance playing surface. Stainless steel frets (.055″ x .90″) offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation.
For those of you that love to shape your sound on the fly using the guitar’s controls, you can finally have this iconic looking guitar with dedicated tone controls for both the neck and bridge pickups.
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 SSV humbucker pickups feature Alnico V magnets and have a broad sonic aperture with very little compression, making for a dynamic, vintage output humbucker. The SSV Neck is a versatile pickup that combines the warmth of a vintage humbucker with increased clarity and definition.
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.
