...BRING IN THE HEAVY HITTER

Overview:
The ALL NEW Classic J Pro features: a 2-piece Alder body, satin finished neck with heavy stainless steel frets, a Rosewood fingerboard and a set of Alnico V Classic J Vintage pickups.

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.

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.


TONE WOODS:

ALDER:
One of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960's, is grown all over the world. Alder is medium to light in weight with soft tight pores. It has a light tan color and can sometimes exhibit large swirling grain patterns and rings. Alder is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows. Alder is used extensively for guitar bodies because of its light weight and its full sound.

MAPLE:
Sourced mostly from the Northern United States and Canada and is commonly used to make necks. Maple has a classic tone, strong in the midrange with a sweet spanky high end.

ROSEWOOD:
Being one of the most popular fingerboard woods for guitars, Indian Rosewood is usually sourced from either India or Bangladesh. It has a thick grain pattern with colors ranging from brown-black, purple, to red-brown. Indian Rosewood is particularly favored by blues and rock players for it’s thick, sweet tone. It has an ideal balance of fat lows, warm mids and a sparkling high end presence.


NECK:
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.


NECK FINISH:
The quarter sawn Maple neck is tinted, then finished in satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.


FRETS:
Every Classic J Pro includes heavy stainless steel frets, which offers silky smooth long-lasting playability. Utilizing the PLEK process on each instrument guarantees the best possible string action, ensures optimized playability and eliminates intonation problems.


ELECTRONICS:
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. Whether you play Jazz, R&B, Rock or Country, the Classic J Vintage will bring you all the subtleties and nuances of your unique playing style.


BODY FINISH:
The Classic J Pro uses our nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Our finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection, beauty, and tone. Great care is taken to ensure that the thinnest possible layers of finish are applied. This allows the wood to resonate freely while still providing ample protection. Our state of the art equipment, experienced staff, and uncompromising quality control ensure that no instrument leaves our facility until it meets our demanding standards.


HARDWARE:

TUNERS:
The Classic J Pro is equipped with Hipshot tuners, which provide improved tuning and stability.

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.
