BUILD QUALITY - Every Classic Antique Roasted is 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.
NITRO-CELLULOSE 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 Vintage Medium neck profile, medium nickel 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.

About the Pickups in this Guitar
Every V60 pickup is hand-built, precisely wound (using Suhr's proprietary winding process) and features: plain enamel wire, specially formulated Alnico V magnets, and vintage correct gray fiber bottoms. The V60 also incorporates a modified staggered pole piece design, which provides an even magnetic field that is perfect for capturing those soaring multi-step bends that became an essential ingredient of the classic Strat solo. Another benefit is that they are a great fit for today’s flatter neck radius equipped guitars.
V60’s are exceptionally dynamic and respond to every nuance of your playing. Their tone is balanced with tight snappy lows and shimmering highs that cut ever so sweetly without sounding harsh. Whether you play Rock, Blues, or R&B, the V60 is ideal for the player searching for the ultimate vintage era single-coil pickup.
The V60 Middle Pickup is RWRP (reverse wound, reverse polarity)
The SSV Humbucker in the bridge has a broad sonic aperture with very little compression, making for a dynamic, vintage output humbucker. The SSV is a versatile pickup that combines the warmth of a vintage humbucker with increased clarity and definition. The SSV Bridge is wound a bit hotter for more output, increased sustain and a sweet midrange response.
