A fascinating and informative 45 mins where John Suhr talks about the whole build process, tone woods, the pros and cons of finishing and much more.
I love factory tour videos but backed up with the knowledge of one of the top builders in the World this is not to be missed!
Also nice to see behind the scenes, where my custom will eventually be made
I would have missed this had it not been for Jon over a guitarnoize for finding and posting!
So many thanks Jon!
I’ve spotted some really interesting new Suhr Moderns of late (possibly due to waiting for my own custom ) that I thought I’d share. It’s always nice to look at lovely guitars
There’s something classy about a white guitar and maple neck, I’m not much of a fan of maple necks to be fair, but the look seems to harken back to old Hendrix Fender strats etc.
This guitar has similar features to the recent Guthrie Govan Antique Modern in that it has a Basswood body with maple cap finished in Nitro Cellulose with a roasted maple neck. The body has also been aged for a slightly relic vibe:
The guitar is available from Haggerty’s Music for $3416. Their site also has some more juicy pictures.
Suhr have introduced a new line of Pro Series Moderns with the M5/M6/M7/M8 models. As with all Pro Series Suhr models these are not built to spec like a custom but use the same materials, finishing and skill that goes into those customs offering players amazing value for money.
The new Pro Series Moderns feature Basswood bodies with stunning maple caps with maple necks shaped to the GG Modern Elliptical .800 – .850 profile. The fingerboard has a 10″-14″ compound radius made of maple on the M6 and M8 models or pau ferro on the M5 and M7 models. It’s also great to see that all models come with Stainless Steel Jumbo frets.
The M5/M6 models are equipped with two humbuckers and a recessed gotoh floyd whilst the M7/M8 models have a HSH pickup configuration with a gotoh 510 six saddle trem.
The models pictured here are available from the fantastic Peach Guitars for £1999.99 each.
Suhr have done it again offering some amazing instruments that I’m sure will sell very well!
