Hope you all staying safe.

I'm about to order a Classic S but can't make up my mind on whether to go for the SSS or SSH configuration.

I know I should contact support and I know I should just order 2, one with SSS and one with SSH. So we know.

What if I order a SSH Classic S along with a prewired SSS pickguard?

Why don't you go to your closest Suhr dealer and play an example of each? It would probably be easier to order through them as well....

If you don't have an HSS guitar, it's a really flexible option...especially with a coil split. If getting classic strat tones are more important to you than getting a bridge humbucker tone, obviously go with SSS.

Can't beat trying them out though, as ATLMikeyD says.

I prefer an SSS Strat visually, just as God and Leo intended but my #1 guitar is an HSS Classic with a 17k SSH+ in the bridge...very hot pickup, I know but it doesn't sound as hot as it is, and it has the push/push bridge tone pot to split the coils, so it's also an 8.5k single coil (roughly). Sounds terrific! I can cover any situation with this guitar. I want more guitars...but don't really have a need.

I prefer the SSH configuration. You can always go SSS and if you want to go SSH at some point in the future, just buy a humbucker that fits in the single coil slot.

Careful if you go with a Custom Classic.

When I got mine, they were routed to order. One had to have the route adjusted by the factory to go from SSH to SSS.
