Experience A Perfect Marriage Of Vintage Design And Modern Improvements - The Suhr Classic Pro HSS Electric Guitar
The Suhr Classic Pro is an instrument with all the tone and playability of the Classic Antique, just without the antiquing and that results in an instrument that is capable of producing iconic tones while retaining the build quality, features and playability you’ve come to expect from Suhr.
This Classic Pro HSS features a quarter-sawn Maple neck with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is tinted and finished with satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture. The neck is equipped with an Even C Medium (.840″-.920″) profile. Rolled edges and a 9″-12” compound fingerboard radius offer a substantial, yet comfortable shape, plus Medium stainless steel frets (.055″ x .090″) 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 contoured heel on the Classic Pro neck allows for easier access to the upper register. For optimum tone and stability, the neck joint must not be too tight or too loose, so all neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand.
The Classic body shape is 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 for bodies and is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows.The 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, which allows the wood to resonate freely while still providing ample protection.
The SSCII is the Suhr 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.
