Something for you Suhr fans

I just received my new Suhr Modern 24 fret. it's amazing - has a D-Tuna installed as well from the factory. Outstanding craftsmanship and undoubtedly some of the best customer service out there! Specs are:

Jumbo Stainless Steel frets, Maple fingerboard, Emerald Green quilted maple top, Doug Aldrich humbuckers (bridge and neck), Gotoh Floyd Rose with EVH D-Tuna, chrome hardware, single volume knob....

Re: Something for you Suhr fans

I love the top on that guitar.
The maple neck looks great and stands out.
But I really like the one knob option.

Glad to see you got a new toy.

Re: Something for you Suhr fans

Their customer service is excellent, indeed. They're great. I think it's great that you can make special requests, like what you did with the D-tuna and the single volume knob. One can also get non-standard nuts etc. It's great. That guitar of yours, certainly rocks. I see it also has a binding which looks cool.

How long did you have to wait before you received your guitar after having ordered it?

Thanks to all of you for your compliments. The guitar is just frighteningly cool. It does have a D-Tuna with a recessed Gotoh Floyd. I have a Tremol-no in the back so I just lock it when I do anything in Drop-D. It's a pretty amazing piece of gear and it plays almost "too good"

...if that's possible!

Thanks again, everyone! Glad to be part of a prestigious club!

Nice axe, only thing that could make it better is if the headstock matched the body. But sweet axe!

It's still not an option on the Modern yet. It is on their other models. The Modern only has a black headstock at this time...

Re: Something for you Suhr fans

If you don't have a wooden top on the body you can have a matching headstock, though.
