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....

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.

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?

WOW, nice!! Is that recessed with a recessed D-tuna route?
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!

If you don't have a wooden top on the body you can have a matching headstock, though. :)
I was just looking at the specs and you're right - but, I still love the top. I'll take a black headstock over anything else for a top that looks like that!

Thanks again to all of you for all the compliments.

Yeah, many people praise the quality of the wood Suhr uses. Here are Gurj's Suhrs. As you can see they've got awesome tops, as well. :)
Oh the humanity....! Man - those look nice!

Here's me praising my graphite guitars as well and look at these wonderful examples of fine wood!
