Suhr Ian Thornley Signature Classic JM HSH Electric Guitar – Sea Foam Green
Ian Thornley is best known as the lead singer and guitarist for multi-platinum selling hard rock outfits Big Wreck and Thornley. He has been using Suhr Classics, Standards and Ts for the last few years and, after playing the Classic JM prototype, he decided that it was the guitar he wanted to call his own.
Ian’s Signature Classic JM features a custom Ian Thornley “V” back neck, jumbo stainless frets, matching painted headstock, HSH pickup configuration, series/parallel switching on the pickups and your choice of tremolo or hardtail bridge.
The Ian Thornley Signature guitar features a quarter-sawn Roasted 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.
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. 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.
The optional string through body TonePros TP6 tune-o-matic is recessed into the body to provide a comfortable low profile feel. Built of solid steel with plated brass saddles, this string through body setup brings out a highly resonant, midrange focused tone. 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.
The versatile HSH pickup configuration is unleashed through a unique control layout that features a 5-way mega switch, and two series/parallel slider switches.
