CLASSIC ANTIQUE

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.

 

ELECTRONICS

SSCII
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.

SUHR V63 SINGLE COILS

Suhr’s V63 pickups are wound to have the same tonal characteristics as those found by John Suhr in a particularly sweet 1963 S type guitar. The magnets are made by the same company that made the magnets for Fender® in the early 60’s and have the exact same formulation and use the same manufacturing process.

V63 SPECIFICATIONS

V63 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.

Magnet: Alnico V Special

DC Resistance:

~ 6.4KΩ (neck)
~ 6.4KΩ (middle) RW/RP
~ 6.4KΩ (bridge)

 

HARDWARE

TUNERS
The Classic Antique is equipped with staggered locking tuners which provide improved tuning stability and eliminate the need for a traditional string tree.

BRIDGE
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.
