    SUHR CLASSIC ANTIQUE

    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. 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.

    IMPECCABLE QUALITY, LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE
    The Classic Antique features a Maple neck with your choice of Maple or Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is tinted and finished in nitro-cellulose lacquer, giving it an authentic vintage look and feel.

    NECK PROFILE - EVEN C MEDIUM (.840″-.920″)

    The Classic Antique is equipped with our Even C Medium profile. Rolled edges and a 9″-12” compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.

    FRETS - MEDIUM STAINLESS STEEL (.055″ x .090″)
    Stainless steel frets offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation.

    CONTOURED HEEL
    The contoured heel of the Classic Antique 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.

    CLASSIC BODY SHAPE
    This 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. The Classic Antique features a lightly aged nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

    TONE WOODS
    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.

    BODY FINISH
    Finished in an extremely thin nitro-cellulose lacquer that features natural checking and light aging.

    SSCII Equipped - The SSCII is our 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.

    HARDWARE & ELECTRONICS
    The unique blend of locking tuners, a high performance bridge, and our proprietary SSCII noise reduction system creates the perfect combination of vintage tones with modern performance.

    GOTOH 510

    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.

    HSS or SSS PICKUP CONFIGS

    Available in two configurations: SSS with ML single coil pickups, or HSS with an SSV humbucker in the bridge position.The ML (Mike Landau) Standard single-coil pickup is overwound for more output and sustain and features our proprietary modified staggered pole piece design to provide an even magnetic field.

    SUHR LOCKING TUNERS

    Equipped with staggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.
