CLASSIC S

CLASSIC LOOKS. MODERN PERFORMANCE.

The 2018 Classic S features a new 60’s C vintage standard neck profile with indian rosewood fretboard and V60LP single coils. The Classic S retains many of the original specifications of the Classic Pro including the SSCII hum cancelling system and stainless steel frets. Proprietary Suhr locking tuners and the Gotoh 510 tremolo provides superior tuning stability. 2018 also marks the introduction of Vintage Yellow, a new finish option for the Classic S

 

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.


PICKUP SPECIFICATIONS

The V60LP pickups faithfully recreate the classic single-coil sounds of the 60’s. These pickups also use the same magnets that were used in the pickups made during this era. What you get are clear bell-like highs, warm and punchy mids, and big yet firm lows that are the hallmark of great vintage pickups.

The V60LP pickup is wound using a proprietary winding process that replicates the hand-wound pattern of some early-60’s single-coil pickups which have a natural roll off on the top end, imparting sweeter and rounder highs.

Magnet: Alnico V Special

DC Resistance:

~ 6.3KΩ (neck)
~ 6.3KΩ (middle) RW/RP

 The SSV has a broad sonic aperture with very little compression, making for a dynamic, vintage output humbucker. The SSV Neck is a versatile pickup that combines the warmth of a vintage humbucker with increased clarity and definition. The SSV Bridge is similar to the SSV neck in tone, but wound hotter for more output, increased sustain and a sweet midrange response.

Magnet: Alnico V

DC Resistance: ~ 9KΩ

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.
