Introduced in 2003, the Suhr Classic J is based on the iconic electric bass designs of the 1960's. This shape has helped define the electric bass guitar for over half a century. The Classic J’s sleek frame, asymmetrical body shape, and slim vintage neck profile make for an instrument that combines vintage style with modern improvements.
The Classic J is available with either our Classic J Vintage or Classic J Humphrey pickups. When coupled with our Classic J preamp, the Classic J can effortlessly shift between genres with the turn of a knob. From the thundering pulse of Rock, to the punchy growl of Jazz Fusion, to the percussive slap of Funk, the Classic J is always the right choice.
