Suhr Classic Antique HSS 3 Tone Burst RW Relic
The Classic Antique now includes: our innovative SSCII (Silent Single-Coil) hum cancelling system, a vintage tinted nitrocellulose neck with stainless steel frets, and a Maple fingerboard option.
Our customers have asked for an instrument that has a vintage look and feel, without sacrificing playability and tone. Enter the Classic Antique™. We designed this guitar to ensure it preserves the spirit of a vintage instrument while performing like a Suhr. Impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail ensure that every neck pocket is tight, every fret is perfectly dressed, and
that every instrument is ready for peak performance before leaving our facility.
The nitro-cellulose lacquer finish and our proprietary antiquing process make each Classic Antique™ feel like it has been loved for years.
One of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960's, is grown all over the world. Alder is medium to light in weight with soft tight pores. It has a light tan color and sometimes exhibits large swirling grain patterns and rings. Alder is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows. Alder is used extensively for guitar bodies because of its light weight and its full sound.
Sourced mostly from the Northern United States and Canada and is commonly used to make necks. Maple has a classic tone, strong in the midrange with a sweet spanky high end.
Being one of the most popular fingerboard woods for guitars, Indian Rosewood is usually sourced from either India or Bangladesh. It has a thick grain pattern with colors ranging from brown-black, purple, to red-brown. Indian Rosewood is particularly favored by blues and rock players for its thick, sweet tone. It has an ideal balance of fat lows, warm mids and a sparkling high end presence.
Suhr Classic Antique HSS NECK
Each Classic Antique is equipped with our Even C Medium neck profile. Rolled edges and a 9-12 compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.
The Quarter sawn Maple neck is tinted, then finished in nitrocellulose lacquer. This provides the traditional feel of a vintage instrument as well as moisture protection.
Suhr Classic Antique HSS FRETS
Every Classic Antique includes medium stainless steel frets, which offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Utilizing the PLEK process on each instrument guarantees the best possible string action, ensures optimized playability and eliminates intonation problems.
Suhr Classic Antique HSS ELECTRONICS
The Classic Antique™ is available in both S-S-S and H-S-S pickup configurations.
SSCII (SILENT SINGLE-COIL)
Our proprietary passive 60-cycle hum reduction system has no impact on tone, there are no batteries to change - just transparent noise reduction.
The ML (Mike Landau) Standard single-coil pickup is overwound for ?more output and sustain. The ML Standard features our proprietary modified staggered pole piece design to provide an even magnetic field needed to accommodate instruments with flatter neck radius and todays string gauges.
Suhr Classic Antique HSS BODY FINISH
The Classic Antique features a nitrocellulose lacquer finish. 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. Our state of the art equipment, experienced staff, and uncompromising quality control ensures that no instrument leaves our facility until it meets our demanding standards.
Suhr Classic Antique HSS HARDWARE
The Classic Antique is equipped with staggered locking tuners, which provide improved tuning stability and eliminate the need for a traditional string tree.
The Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge features dual steel knife-edge pivot points to provide greater functionality and years of trouble free performance. The 510s steel tremolo block is designed to allow the strings to contact the saddle without touching the block as it passes through, which increases sustain and tuning stability.
