What we say:
Suhr’s Classic Antique is a subtly aged take on their masterful S-type electric guitar. Preserving everything that makes that model iconic and incorporating elements that modernity has improved upon, Suhr brings you the ultimate blend of yesterday and today in a package that looks, feels and sounds simply impeccable, with just a touch of ageing. This model is for left-handed players.
The Classic Antique starts with a choice 2-piece Alder body which is sprayed with extremely thin layers of nitro-cellulose finish in order to preserve body resonance and of course to provide an elegant & luxurious look. This is then sympathetically aged to simulate decades of use. Suhr do not ‘over-age’ their guitars: the ageing process is always subtle and understated. This particular guitar has a 3 tone Sunburst finish.
Suhr necks are among the most playable of all custom guitar brands and this one provides ample proof. Make with quartersawn Maple, this has a slightly more substantial feel than a typical modern neck, referred to as ‘Even C Medium’. A 9-12” compound radius fretboard topped with medium-sized stainless steel frets makes for an unforgettable playing surface. We think nearly all guitarists will be able to get on well with this neck.
Suhr have installed their proprietary SSCII technology (powered by a 9v battery) in this Classic Antique to eliminate the noise and 60 cycle hum that has traditionally plagued single coil pickup-equipped guitars. If the battery runs out, the guitar will continue to work fine, just without the benefit on the noise reduction. Other hardware includes Suhr locking tuners and a high-mass Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge.
This beautiful Classic Antique has an HSS pickup layout, perhaps the most versatile for this type of guitar. The bridge unit is a slightly-hotter-than-PAF SSV unit, perfect for vintage (and less vintage) crunch tones. The single coils are ML (Mike Landau) models and sound particularly authentic to that classic perfection of a ‘Californian’ single coil. Suhr hand wind all of their own pickups in-house and are as meticulously about them as they are with the rest of the instrument. Fans of superb tone will not fail to enjoy this guitar!
This Suhr Classic Antique gives you all of the vintage snap and percussion you’d want in an S-type, with extremely high quality hardware, build quality and a cool aged vibe. It feels absolutely lovely to play and has effectively no background noise. This is close to being a perfect left-handed ’S’ type guitar.
