Another incredible example of exotic woods and tops creating the perfect piece to the puzzle. A Desert Gradient finish fades wonderfully down the beautiful Flame Maple top, and the satin-finished Pau Ferro neck and fingerboard offer effortless playability. Pair those exotic tonewoods with a resonant mahogany body and you have a recipe to die for! The range of Suhr's SSV/SSH+ pickup set can get you anywhere from classic crunch to modern, saturated lead tones, and the ML Standard Single coil in the middle is just icing on the cake to provide all the spank you'll need!
John Suhr himself deemed this particular combination the "holy grail of tone!"

The thick, sustaining sound of the set-neck electric guitar has helped define Rock music for half a century. The set-in neck joint produces a warm, singing tone and facilitates easier access to the upper frets.
Native to Asia, Europe, and North America, Basswood gained prominence as a favored tone wood for shredders in the 1980’s. It is light in color and weight with almost no grain pattern. It is best suited for solid colors or as a backing wood for a figured top. Basswood bodies have a fat, well-balanced tone that produces smooth sounds without any hard edges.
