Re: Are Suhr THAT good?
Well, good compared to what?
I bought a gorgeous Fender Custom Shop '65 Gold on Gold relic Strat a few years ago (to replace a particularly nice '63 Strat, but that's another story) - it is a great guitar, really, seriously great Strat.......
..... Anyway, about a year after I got it, a friend who so happens to be the Australian SUHR distributor dropped by with a Custom Audio head and a blond SUHR Alder Standard (Strat style, non-locking trem, noise cancelling system, stainless frets on a one piece Maple neck).....
So, after playing the Suhr for an hour or so, I'm looking at my lovely Strat and thinking; "Uh, just WHY did I buy a Fender......?" The Strat is about $7K worth of Fender, the Suhr, at that point, listed at $4600 (Aussie Dollars) - I would have done a straight swap without a moment's hesitation.
Yes, they are REALLY good!
