Gorgeous Oh man, that's not helping the GAS situation! Although I'm not a huge fan of Les Pauls, I've been wanting a DC ever since I saw Max's. The zebra pups definately suit that guitar

Re: Finally got my Suhr Standard!

Can't beat a Suhr. Not only VERY beautifull, they sound and play great too.

Like Guthrie Govan said: "Eerily perfect guitars".

Congrats mate!

Re: Finally got my Suhr Standard!

Great guitar mate!!!

It's a shame that the truss rod nut was a bit dodgy.

My GAS is getting worse - I need a HH Suhr with a Floyd

Did you get it from Sounds Great or import from the US?

Re: Finally got my Suhr Standard!

I didnt realizes Suhrs were that expensive. Im sure they are incredible guitars, but after checking out the site..$200 upcharge for black hardware and $700 for body and neck binding. I was thinking about getting one eventually, but now I think I'll just sit back and drool over yours.

They're definately expensive! But in the end I paid roughly what a brand new J-Custom would cost.

Mark, thanks mate I ordered the guitar through Matt. MUCH cheaper than going through a UK dealer. Thanks to Matt, it ended up costing around £1600-£1700 including shipping and taxes. If I'd gone to Sounds Great, I think we'd be looking at least £2500!

Re: Finally got my Suhr Standard!

I figured it would be cheaper to go through a dealer than directy through Suhr, still some of those upgrades are pretty steep. Matt had a real nice red one awhile ago, maybe when Im back to work.......

Yeah, I like the black one better too. Classier, IMO (I'm not a fan of extremely 3D quilts, specially of bright colors)!

But hey, they both look absolutely great.

Not to change the subject but did you ever check out Carvin? You can have pretty much anything you want made for alot less $ with top notch quality!

I'd definately recommend Matt, he's a really cool guy to deal with If I remember correctly, I didn't pay the prices quoted on the Suhr website.

Btw, found a couple of trans black DC's on fleabay. I'm getting that gassy feeling again
