The new Antique Series is collaboration between Suhr Guitars and J Black, the ex-Fender Custom Shop master builder who came up with the aging process concept. J Black sprays the thin nitro-cellulose lacquer finish on the guitars' bodies and necks and apply his proprietary aging process to give it that Antique look and feel.
Suhr introduced the Antique Classic at the 2007 NAMM in Anaheim and these guitars were undoubtedly the talk of the show at the Suhr booth. Thin lacquer finish with J Black's painstaking aging process combined with the vaunted Suhr playability, pickups and the SSC technology truly provided the best of all worlds. People could not keep their hands off these guitars. It feels really old and broken in but it plays and sounds like a brand new Suhr Custom guitar. The SSC included in these guitars was the icing on the cake for the tone connoisseurs: great vintage tone without the noise!
Get the old vintage look and feel along with modern Suhr playability, functionality and tone. Now you can truly enjoy the best of all worlds!
