NGD: Suhr Modern 7 in Bengal Burst

EDIT - decent outdoorpictures with chrome hardware, as well as a video, are here:

http://www.jemsite.com/forums/showpo...9&postcount=41

Ok, first the pictures, since no one cares about the text. Sorry they're a tad grainy, my camera sucks in indoor lighting.
















Suhr Modern 7, swamp ash body, flamed maple top, bengal burst with scraped binding, natural back, 4a birdseye roasted maple neck, stainless jumbo frets, OFR, 7 Vintage neck pickup, 7 Plus bridge pickup.

Further thoughts to come, but this thing OWNS. I need to get some outdoor pictures as the top is a little less yellow in real life. Gorgeous looking guitar, and it plays and sounds better than it looks. I have a Warmoth with this same wood combination which is a pretty bright guitar, but this one's quite a bit more balanced - maybe it's the pickups, but it's incredibly thick, sort of like a Les Paul in the midrange but with a more pronounced, more Fender-y low end and a much more solid attack. Sustain is effortless, too. And the pickups sound awesome split with a bit of gain.

I picked it up after work on Wednesday and have spent pretty much every night after work playing it.

Yeah, and honestly the way it sounds and plays trumps what it looks like. I still have to swap the hardware to chrome (a buddy has a Modern 7 with chrome hardware that he wished was black, so I ordered black so we could swap), but after that I'll get a video of this thing in action so you guys can hear it.

Re: NGD: Suhr Modern 7 in Bengal Burst

Wow, really nice. I really love the totally natural back. I've never been a fan of the look of natural swamp from the front, but it looks really great on the back with the flamed maple top.

I also always enjoy watching videos of people here who are much better guitar players than me
