The Suhr Classic J 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. 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.
NECK PROFILE: VINTAGE J (.810″-.930″) Each Classic J 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.
GOTOH VINTAGE JAZZ BRIDGE: The Gotoh Vintage Jazz bass bridge is solidly anchored for improved connection, improving sustain and tonality. The spiral saddles allow the adjustment/fine-tuning of the instruments string spacing which improve the alignment of the strings to the pickups.
PICKUP CONFIGURATION: The Classic J Vintage pickup captures the character of a great sounding mid ‘60s single-coil pickup, with just the right amount of output for exceptional warmth, punch, and definition.
TUNING MACHINES: The Classic J Pro is equipped with Hipshot tuners, which provide excellent tuning and stability.
