Harkening back to an era in which Wall Street would've recommended buying stock in hair spray, the Suhr 80's Shred is a no-holds-barred guitar aiming for the player that needs to be as flashy as possible; both in their fiery playing and the aesthetic of the guitar they use. When you really need to Lay It Down and Rock Like a Hurricane, Suhr has made the guitar you need. With a finish that'll make you Jump and tones that are Out of This World, you'll have Nothin' But a Good Time.
Break out the leather pants and tattered Ts, it's time to rock!
The Suhr 80‘s Shred will bring you back to the glory days when shred was king. When it was all about big hair, spandex and how many notes you could fit into one solo. Guitarists everywhere sought the ultimate in playability and over-the-top styling to set themselves apart. This, my friends, is the culmination of that quest for shred.
The 80’s Shred is available in two wood combinations. The Alder body with a Maple neck and Ebony fingerboard produce a muscular tone with strong mids and a percussive attack. The Swamp Ash body, Maple neck and Maple fingerboard produce a resonant tone with slightly scooped mids and sweet highs. These choice tone woods embody the shred style and sound.
EQUIPPED TO ROCK
The Gotoh Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo system keeps your tuning locked down while you dive bomb to your heart’s content. Armed with our high-output Aldrich humbuckers the 80‘s Shred covers everything from chunky low-string riffing to screaming high string bends with ease.
HIGH GAIN HEAVEN
The modern elliptical neck shape, rolled fingerboard edges, stainless steel frets, 16” radius and optional scalloped fretboard combine to offer effortless playability suited for fast lines and huge bends.
If your mind isn't blown yet, get ready. Every 80's Shred is equipped with a head turning reverse headstock. Black eyeliner and big hair are recommended.
Our proprietary antiquing process and authentic 80’s materials give this guitar a “broken-in” feel like rocking was your day job back in the 80’s. Available finished in either neon drip or tiger stripe, the 80‘s Shred is a modern day time machine.
The slightly asymmetrical modern body shape feels balanced whether sitting or standing. The comfortable contours make playing through double encores a breeze. Don’t pull out the spandex just yet, there are only fifty available in each finish. This righteous axe will be available in the fall of 2012. So turn off that Atari, get off your waterbed and pre-order yours today because these will be gone faster than your uncle’s Trans-Am.
