This Shur Classic Antique is actually new old stock from the original store that ordered it new and has been waiting in storage for it's new owner. For the NAMM show in 2009 Suhr had this guitar on display to show the new Antique model that they were just starting to do. It's like going back in time ten years and finding that hidden gem. The guitar plays great and sounds just as good. She ships in the original tweed case with special NAMM wood display plaque and spec sheet with all of the build details.
