The Suhr Classic S Antique was created in the spirit of the original Fender Stratocaster, and developed to satisfy the needs of a guitarist who wants an instrument that preserves classic tone and design, while improving on the limitations of vintage instruments. The Stratocaster has long been a staple for many guitarists of practically all genres. The Classic S Antique advances this design by blending the best of the old and new schools.
Build Quality: Every Classic S Antique is proudly made in the USA and built with impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail to ensure that every neck pocket is tight, every fret is perfectly dressed, and each instrument plays its best before leaving Suhr's facility.
Nitrocellulose Finish: The antiqued Nitro-cellulose lacquer finish allows the Alder body to resonate freely and feel like it has been well worn in for years.
Unrivaled Playability: The 60's C Medium neck profile, medium stainless steel frets, and 9-12" compound fingerboard radius improve upon the playability of vintage instruments, resulting in a neck that is equally comfortable for chording and soloing.
Vintage Improvements: In addition to the massively popular SSCII (Silent Single Coil) noise reduction system, the Suhr Classic S Antique is equipped with staggered locking tuners, which provide improved tuning stability and eliminate the need for a traditional string tree.
