We love John Suhr's guitars and love what he's done with the Classic S model. If you're new to Suhr guitars, you can expect flawless build quality, some of the best fret work in the industry, super comfy neck carves, effortless playability, and an overall more modern approach to the classic Strat.
What can't be overstated is just how comfortable this guitar is to play. Deluxe, luxurious, effortless...all are terms that come to mind when sitting down for a session with it. The satin finished, "Vintage Medium C" neck carve (.83-.95") maple neck is a highlight on this guitar.
When played acoustically, this Classic S has a solid, snappy feel to it. Into our Carr Rambler we were able to coax a wide range of modern, beautifully compressed Strat tones that work great either clean or overdriven.
Condition: Near mint save for one ding on the tummy cut - into the finish, clear and color coat cracked/chipped.
Looking for a highly-evolved Strat made by one of the top builders working today? Look no further. A killer guitar by any measure. Priced with hardshell case.
