If you are looking for that vintage vibe and feel without compromising on playability and tone, look no further than the Suhr Classic Antique.
These guitars feature all the vintage elements we love but back it up with super stable and reliable modern-day benefits. The classic Alder Strat body is finished in 3 Tone Sunburst with a thin nitro lacquer and then subject to Suhr's own antiquing process, subtly and authentically aged it features natural checking and light ageing. The ultra-thin nitro will wear naturally to allow each guitar to develop its own roadworn look.
The Maple neck is also tinted and finished in nitro for a smooth, slick feel. With a C medium profile, a compound 9''-12'' radius and an Indian Rosewood fingerboard, this is a substantial but really comfortable guitar.
Benefitting from 2 Mike Landau Standard single coil pickups, it replicates those famous Strat tones, rich, punchy and ready to growl. The ML Standard pickups are overwound for increased sustain and a higher output. With an SSV Humbucker in the bridge position you are able to really maximise your tonal capabilities, rich and broad, they deliver monster tone. The Classic Antique is versatile and adaptable and boosted by the Suhr SSCII, a completely transparent noise reduction system. Installed inside the body, it reduces 60 cycle hum and has no effect on tone, it just helps keep those crystal clear tones ringing!
