For 2020, Suhr is offering four stunning Classic S guitars in 4 colors never seen before from Suhr. Brandywine, Indigo, Champagne, and Copper Firemist. They also feature spectacular roasted flamed maple necks not normally found on Suhr guitars, and come with hardshell cases as opposed to gigbags. Bonus!
The Classic S Metallic guitars come in an HSS configuration, with low noise Suhr V60LP pickups in the neck and middle position, and a Raw Nickel SSH in the bridge. Stainless steel frets and modern hardware like Suhr Locking Tuners and a Gotoh 510 Tremolo Bridge are also standard.
As always, each Suhr Classic S goes through the same renowned individual setup process (including being PLEK'd) that $10-15k Suhr Custom guitars go through.
The Classic S Metallic is built with a two-piece alder body, known for its rich low and mid-range tonal qualities as well as its lighter overall weight. Suhr takes great care in finishing the body with an ultra "Thin Skin" urethane finish, allowing for the wood to resonate freely while still providing plenty of protection to ensure the longevity of these guitars.

About the Pickups in this Guitar
V60LP’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 V60LP is ideal for the player searching for the ultimate vintage era single-coil pickup. The V60LP 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.
The SSH Bridge is Suhr's standard high output humbucker pickup. From warm and clear clean sounds to classic rock to high-energy jazz-rock fusion to 80's metal, the SSH does it all. Using highest grade hand-selected Alnico magnets and premium components, these pickups complement the characteristics of the woods in your guitar.
With Custom Suhr Guitars: Each Suhr Custom guitar is built precisely to the customer's specs. Special woods, special inlays, neck shapes, fret sizes, colors, electronics, you name it. That whole process is a lengthy one and requires lots of special attention along the way to insure a custom Suhr is *EXACTLY* as the customer specified. IN addition, the machines that cut cut the necks, bodies, etc have to be reprogrammed for each guitar. The paint shop has to change everything up for each individual guitar. You get the picture.
With Pro Series Suhr Guitars: The specs are all set and fixed for the entire run. Same body/neck woods, electronics, neck shapes, fret sizes, etc. We get together with Suhr and select the most common specs that customers request for a specific model, change up the colors a bit for variation, and do a run of 50+ at a time. But here's where the story gets more interesting... With the pro series, *EVERY* step of the Pro Series build process is exactly like the Custom build process. The same pickups, hardware, woods, etc are used for the Pro series. The same PLEK machines are used on the Pro Series. The same guys that do the setups and final finishing on the Customs are the guys who do it on the Pros.
So what does that mean? It means if a build spec for a Pro Series guitar matches what you're wanting, then you'd be crazy not to get the Pro. :) It's the same guitar. Period. Honestly, it's a steal, and we think people should take advantage before Suhr comes it it's senses and does away with the Pro Series. They already had a major price increase recently on the Pros, which came *after* we scheduled our special runs, so we're still able to offer them at the old price. After they're gone, you can expect to see a price increase of $500+ per Pro Series guitar. No joke... Get them while you can at these prices.
