SUHR CLASSIC J ANTIQUE
The Suhr Classic J Pro 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.
IMPECCABLE QUALITY, LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE
From the thundering growl of Rock, to deep warmth of Jazz, to the percussive slap of Funk, the Classic J Pro is always the right choice.
VINTAGE J (.810″-.930″)
Each Classic J Pro is equipped with our Vintage J neck profile. Rolled edges and a 7.25” fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.
HEAVY STAINLESS STEEL (.051″ x .108″)
Stainless steel frets offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation.
The Quarter sawn Maple neck is tinted, then finished in nitrocellulose lacquer. This provides the traditional feel of a vintage instrument as well as moisture protection.
CLASSIC J BODY SHAPE
Alder is one of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960’s and is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows.
The nitrocellulose lacquer finish and our proprietary antiquing process make each Classic J Antique™ feel like it has been loved for years.
HARDWARE & ELECTRONICS
Whether you play Jazz, R&B, Rock or Country, the Classic J Vintage will bring you all the subtleties and nuances of your unique playing style.
