Suhr customers have asked for an instrument that has a vintage look and feel, without sacrificing playability and tone. Enter the Classic Antique™. Suhr 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 their proprietary antiquing process make each Classic Antique™ feel like it has been loved for years. The Classic Antique now includes: their innovative SSCII (Silent Single-Coil) hum cancelling system, a vintage tinted nitrocellulose neck with stainless steel frets, and a Maple fingerboard option.
Suhr's Silent Single Coil II system (SSCII) is a proprietary passive 60-cycle hum reduction system that has no impact on tone, no batteries to change - just transparent noise reduction.
V60LP SINGLE COILS
The V60LP pickups are wound using a proprietary winding process to offer players a sweeter top-end with balanced lows and a focused midrange than our V60 model. V60LP pickups incorporate a modified staggered pole piece design to provide an even magnetic field needed to accommodate instruments with flatter neck radius and today’s string gauges.
“We are happy to introduce the new Thornbucker + bridge pickup. It retains all the clarity, warmth, character, and mojo of the original Thornbuckers, and adds a bit more power and oomph. Great for players that like a slightly overwound PAF-type tone!”
“We’re overjoyed with the enthusiasm from players for the Thornbucker humbucking pickups! The pickups have been a resounding success, garnering praise for their extraordinary tone and balance. I’m truly honored and excited that so many guitarists are enjoying them as much as I do.” -Pete Thorn
The Classic Antique is equipped with staggered locking tuners which provide improved tuning stability and eliminate the need for a traditional string tree.
The appointed Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge features dual steel knife edge pivot points to provide greater functionality and years of trouble free performance. The 510’s tremolo block was designed to allow the strings to contact the saddle without touching the block as it passes through which increases sustain and tuning stability.
