Etymology: From classique, from classicus, from classis
A classic is an outstanding example of a particular style; something of lasting worth or with a timeless quality; of the first or highest quality, class, or rank – something that exemplifies its class. The word can be an adjective (a classic car) or a noun (a classic of English literature). It denotes a particular quality in art, architecture, literature, design, technology, or other cultural artifacts. In commerce, products are named 'classic' to denote a long-standing popular version or model, to distinguish it from a newer variety. Classic is used to describe many major, long-standing sporting events. Colloquially, an everyday occurrence (e.g. a joke or mishap) may be described in some dialects of English as 'an absolute classic'. "Classic" should not be confused with classical, which refers specifically to certain cultural styles, especially in music and architecture: styles generally taking inspiration from the Classical tradition, hence classicism.
A classic is something that is considered to be of the highest quality, significance, or of enduring value, representative of its kind or genre. This term can be applied to literature, music, art, design, fashion, or any other form of creative work or thought. It can also refer to something that is typical or traditional, recognized and established over a period of time.

This isn’t just for people interested in buying expensive equipment. It’s something that can work in any bar.
