Suhr Scott Henderson Signature SSS Classic Electric Guitar Seafoam Green
John Suhr has been building highly modified Classic S guitars for legendary award winning Jazz and Blues guitarist Scott Henderson since 1991. When John started Suhr Guitars twenty years ago, Scott was his first endorser. After building a number of iterations over the years, John and Scott have honed Scott’s particular guitar specs to what they are today and now we are making Scott’s Signature guitar available to everyone.
IMPECCABLE QUALITY, LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE. The Scott Henderson Signature Classic features a Maple neck an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is tinted and finished with our satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
D SHAPE NECK (.800″-.880″). Scott needs a neck that is equally at home with both chords and solo lines. His favorite Suhr neck profile is the D shape with a straight 16″ radius.
JUMBO NICKEL (.057″ x .110″). Scott’s fret of choice is the Jumbo Nickel. This tall and wide fretwire makes for easy string bending and comfortable sliding. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation.
CONTOURED HEEL. The contoured 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.
A highly modified Fender® bridge and unique electronics configuration are at the heart of Scott Henderson’s signature Suhr. Superb tuning stability, vintage tones, and incredible tremolo range come together to create the ultimate blend of vintage sound and modern refinement.
