New Suhr Reb Beach Model with Koa Top. Ordered Mine Today!

I just ordered the new Suhr Reb Beach guitar today and it should arrive the first week of July. Check it out under the gear section on www.rebbeach.com - Mahogany body with flamed Koa top, Pauferro neck, original Floyd. I'll post pics once I get it.

I've noticed the pickups on his guitar are positioned in very functional positions... bridge right on the bridge, the neck right on the neck, and the middle closer to the bridge. Should be a sweet player.

Beautiful.

I've always liked Pensa-Suhr stuff. Funny, Winger is totally out of the public eye and Reb gets a better guitar, how's that work again?

Well, he's back to being more of a hired gun, since Winger he's worked with Alice Cooper and Dokken. Probably makin' the dough even more.

No offense JimiVai, but what's with the gold pickguard strip thingy? Still, it's a beautiful guitar. I'm sure nicely built. Where does one purchase a Suhr? I don't see them around here (CHicago).

The "prototype" guitar on Reb's site is different to the "Reb Beach model" shown on Suhr's Web site. http://www.suhrguitars.com

The one on Suhr's site has a maple neck, a different switching setup (like on the original Hamer Steve Stevens model) and that stupid pickguard. I like the one on Reb's site better.

Actually, Winger is back! Reb's signature models should be getting plenty of playing time on the "Hollywierd Tour" with Poison, Cinderella & Faster *****cat. Plus, there's talk of a small headlining tour of mid-size theaters after that. I'm going to see them next month...should be great!

I love the signature model Suhr though...gorgeous guitar!

I think you guys are looking at the wrong guitar! There is no gold pickguard. It's not the one on the home page with the quilted top. Here's the link www.rebbeach.com/rbgear.htm

JimiVai: We're looking at this one

http://www.suhrguitars.com/rb.htm

...which is what Suhr is advertising as the Reb Beach signature model. Did you purchase something else?

Hey Darren:
Suhr is making a new Reb Beach model with a flamed Koa top. The one I will be buying is on Reb's site www.rebbeach.com/rbgear.htm - Check it out and let me know what ya think. Best of all, no gold pickguard!!

what wrong with gold pickguard?
i mean, you guys go nuts for more-is-better looking guitars, vines, pyramids, flowers, chrome pickguards, Godzilla skin, shocking pink, Lochness green, faded pink PUs on root beer finish... and you dont like a gold pickguard?
there's something wrong...
i personally think that gold on Koa looks beautiful, waaay more than greenblackred chromatic combination of a DNA's pick-ups...
