SUHR MODERN - IMPECCABLE QUALITY, LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE
The Classic JM Pro features a quarter-sawn Maple neck with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is finished with our satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
60’s C Vintage Standard (.810″-.930″) The Classic JM Pro is equipped with our comfortable 60’s C Vintage Standard neck profile. Rolled edges and a 10-14” compound fingerboard radius compliment the vintage style back taper to create a high performance playing surface.
FRETS - MEDIUM STAINLESS STEEL (.055″ x .90″)
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.
The unique contoured cutaway and heel allows for easier access to the upper register. For optimum tone and stability, the neck joint must not be too tight or too loose, therefore all of our neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.
CLASSIC JM BODY SHAPE
The Classic JM features subtle, yet substantial tweaks to a classic body shape. The overall size and perimeter of the body has been tweaked and slightly downsized from the original version to create an instrument that feels incredibly comfortable, ergonomic, and familiar. The optional TonePros TP6 tune-o-matic bridge is thoughtfully recessed into the body of the guitar to keep the same low profile feel as the 510 tremolo. It’s incredibly comfortable to play!
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.
COMFORTABLE BODY SHAPE
Great care is taken to ensure that the Classic JM is as ergonomic, balanced, and comfortable as possible. If you are used to playing our other body shapes, or other classic 25.5″ scale guitars, you will feel right at home with the Classic JM.
RECESSED TUNE-O-MATIC OPTION
The optional string through body TonePros TP6 tune-o-matic is recessed into the body to provide a comfortable low profile feel.

The TonePros TP6 features top adjust action via a hex wrench (no manipulation of the thumb wheels required), along with two locking hex screws to keep the bridge securely locked to the posts.
