Suhr Limited Edition Classic Antique Finish Over Finish Olympic White Over Sunburst
The Classic Antique Finish Over Finish Limited Edition was inspired by the sought after well-weathered paint jobs found on vintage instruments of an era gone by.
According to popular belief, there are two opinions of how these finishes actually originated. The first idea is that a solid color was applied to conceal a finish that was either damaged or flawed during the production process. The second is that since sunburst was standard on instruments made during that era, the factory would apply a secondary top coat to the original finish whenever a customer requested a custom color.
Each Classic Antique Finish Over Finish is accurately painted to recreate these unique finishes by applying a solid thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish over a 3-tone burst, and then carefully aged to expose the two distinct finishes.
Limited to only 200 instruments worldwide, the Classic Antique Finish Over Finish is available with a Rosewood fingerboard, in an H/S/S or S/S/S pickup configuration, and five nitrocellulose lacquer finishes; Black, Candy Apple Red, Fiesta Orange, Olympic White and Surf Green.
