Suhr Classic JM Guitar, Gold, S90, 510
Get your Suhr Classic JM Guitar at Humbucker Music, the largest Suhr Pro Series dealer in the United States with the biggest selection in stock and for sale.
The new Suhr Classic JM starts with a familiar, yet more refined and sleeker, offset body and adds enhancements to playability previously unattainable to the guitarist interested in a truly vintage vibe guitar.
This Classic JM features two huge sounding but hum-free (using and active Silent Single Coil II System) S90 pickups with a low profile three way pickup selector.
Another great feature is the unique contoured cutaway and heel on the Classic JM, allowing easier access to the upper register. For optimum tone and stability, the neck joint must not be too tight or too loose, therefore all of our neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.
Like all Suhr guitars, the frets are leveled and hand dressed for superior playability. The improved headstock design enhances tuning stability, eliminating the need for a string tree.
The combination of Alder bodies and Maple with Indian Rosewood fingerboard necks, combined with the superior Suhr pickups give these instruments that classic tone expected from a JM styled guitar, fitting nicely in every genre from country to rock.
