Suhr Modern Satin

So I've been eyeing these things for a while and finally pulled the trigger on one last week and couldn't be happier. Its my first "natural" guitar and it looks and feels great. It plays every bit as good as my custom Suhr Modern.


Stainless steel frets
African mahogany with indian rosewood board


Feast your eyes....












And heres my Custom Modern just because

Re: Suhr Modern Satin

Nice looking Suhr. I see he copied a few Ibanez designs and incorporated them into it.

They're both mine! My Custom Modern finish is actually called fireburst.

Re: Suhr Modern Satin

The modern wins the looks war, but the natural finish must sound amazing

Re: Suhr Modern Satin

WHEW beautiful
I haven't play one of those but I hear they are real good so I kinda don't want to in order to avoid "gassing" for one

Non pounded edges
Strat style switch as opposed to the Switchcraft Charvels normally have
The top horn is kinda similar to Ibanez
Recessed floating bridge
24 fret
I think those are more "Ibanezish" than "Charvelish"

Re: Suhr Modern Satin

Those are not Ibanez things dude. It's not supposed to be like a Charvel either. The asymmetrical body shape is only Suhr.


What are non pounded edges?

Rounded

Those guitars are very reminiscent of Charvel and Ibanez not saying there's anything wrong with that but they are

Re: Suhr Modern Satin

Very nice. I love my moderns. The other cool feature Suhr does is the blower switch. Little black push-button that routes the bridge output right to the jack. Doesn't matter what position the 5-way is in. I use it for soloing all the time. It gives the perfect amount of boost.

Yeah the wiring configuration on the suhr is very, very flexible.
