IAN THORNLEY SIGNATURE CLASSIC S ANTIQUE

What can’t Ian Thornley do?

Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, the lead singer of his band Big Wreck, a world-class guitar player, a songwriter, and solo-artist, Ian Thornley is an incredible musician in every sense of the word.

It is our pleasure to introduce the latest achievement in our search to build Ian his perfect guitar.

The all-new Suhr Ian Thornley Signature “Sonic White” Classic S has all of the incredible tone and playability that you would expect to find in an instrument with Ian Thornley’s signature on the back.

The first Classic S we have built for Ian has an alder body, with an incredibly stable roasted maple neck with his custom Ian Thornley V neck shape. Complete with a roasted maple fretboard, this sets the stage for Ian to build a powerhouse of an instrument. Equipped with an Aldrich Humbucker neck and bridge pickup and an ML Standard in the middle position, combined with Ian’s custom wiring gives you access to a complete range of tone, covering any genre you can imagine. Driving riffs, soaring leads, and clean and clear rhythms and chords, this guitar does everything you can dream.

“This is the next step in an ongoing search for my perfect instrument. Much like my signature Classic JM, the new Sonic White Classic S is incredibly diverse, easy to play, with a touch more horsepower and a familiar, comfortable shape. This guitar was born of wanting all of these features, as well as a new roasted maple fingerboard instead of the usual rosewood. The covered humbuckers pair with the maple board very well, both sonically and aesthetically.” -Ian Thornley
