That makes no sense what so ever. You can match the wood, but you can't patent it.

c)So just because you overpaid for a Suhr I have to believe they're "awesome" well, let me see...wrong! FYI: I took one home to see what the hype was all about, after a few days I realized it was a good playing/nicely crafted guitar but I just could not justify the price tag, so I returned it.

d)I added you back to my ignore list so you can argue with yourself all you want!

Just ignore me, I'm behind the curve lol
You should not compare Suhr to PRS or even Ibanez. PRS quality control is down under at the moment.
I have lots of students buying PRS's and lately the quality is not what you would expect from a guitar with that price tag.

Who is comparing Suhr to PRS? I compared their fanbase.

^^^This is the most Juvenile post i've ever read on this forum.

On topic, i've played a Suhr once and it was a great guitar, build quality was like nothing i'd seen. Price wise they're a bit out of my league, i wouldnt really like the idea of taking it to gigs and what not.

Probably some of the nicest looking guitars around right now.

I think I've seen worse but point taken, it should have been a PM rather than publicly written.


I agree with your idea about being afraid to use a high end guitar like that onstage and it is definitely out of my league for the most part due to price anyway so it works out in the end. I'm trying to pull my sh!t together so I can call Rich for one of his JS1200's and before that a nice pristine RG3520z-hbk, those are more in my price range for guitars I would actually not feel uncomfortable about using at shows.

Those tops are the sheeeeet!!! VERY nice.

You guys surely are a wealth of info on guitar in general and I love to learn about unfamiliar guitars like Suhrs. Thanks for sharing pics and opinions.

Re: Are Suhr THAT good?

In my experience and humble opinion, John Suhr makes the finest built and best looking (if maple floats your boat!) bolt on guitars.

The build quality on mine is flawless, the finish astounding and the playability suits me very well and I also like the pickups.

My has the RB neck shape and SSH+ bridge H/B

Somehow I've got to save enough cash to ditch my RG20th and get one of the new 24 fret Moderns - it may take some time

Obviously all is a very personal situation but I couldn't be more satisfied with mine

You forgot your Vigier, Paul.

As for me, I'm still looking forward to my first personal encounter with a Suhr someday. I'm not looking for one...just aching to share the admiration.
