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.

NECK PROFILE

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.

FRETS

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.

NECK FINISH

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.

TONE WOODS

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.

BODY FINISH

The nitrocellulose lacquer finish and our proprietary antiquing process make each Classic J Antique™ feel like it has been loved for years.
