Thumbs up New Suhr Exotic #10!

Check out the new addition to the Suhr Exotic line. It's amazing.

You can click on the pic to go to the thread on the Suhr forum where they talk about the specs a bit and you can find a link to more pictures of the guitar.

Re: New Suhr Exotic #10!

Yeah, if you read the thread you can see Ed Yoon say that this is one of the more understated ones in the exotic line.

Re: New Suhr Exotic #10!

Thanks for posting Alwin.

I love those Suhr guitars. Is a Suhr Modern still on your wish list?

Re: New Suhr Exotic #10!

Ed Yoon pointed out in the Suhr forum thread that this guitar actually has a body, which is made of one piece quilted maple. I didn't notice until he pointed it out. It looks great, I think. You don't have that seam that you see on maple topped guitars, for instance. It's cool.

I would look cool with a non-Floyd bridge, yeah. You could always order it that way as a custom order.

Uhm, yes and no. It's kind of a long story and I would digress a lot if I'd post it here. But I could PM it to you if you're interested.

I just found out that they call them 'exotic' because of the wood choices. It's not necessarily an aesthetic thing.

The fretboard is made of cocobolo, for instance. I'd never heard of that before.

Re: New Suhr Exotic #10!

I like Suhrs, but I'm not a fan of the "furniture wood" tops, as I call them (this goes for any guitar company).
