What We Think

The Suhr Pro Series guitars are wonderful. All the quality, fit & finish you are used to in a Suhr Custom Series guitar at a more affordable price point! Built in the same factory, and the same line as all Suhr USA model guitars you can be assured that this guitar is of the highest quality out there. The C1 marries traditional "S" Style with John Suhr's technique for crafting the best solid body guitars you will play. After this one is in your hands, you won't be able to spell "Denfer" (see we can't even spell it anymore!)

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

The Suhr Pro Series guitars represent a new direction for Suhr Guitars: producing the same extremely high quality guitars that we are renowned for but with set specs (no custom options) available in a limited number of popular colors at an affordable price point. There are no cutting corners or lowering of our acclaimed quality standards.

The quality of the Pro Series is as good as our tricked-out Custom jobs - you simply choose a model and a color and experience the Suhr quality for serious gigging or your personal musical enjoyment without breaking the bank. Whether you are a current custom-job Suhr owner or a player looking to move up to a Suhr from the typical mass production guitars, the Suhr Pro Series guitar provides all the qualities and features you've come to expect from Suhr.

ntroduced in January, 2010 at the Winter NAMM Show, the C1 and C2 are vintage-styled Classic models in our more affordable Pro Series package. If you are a traditionalist who wants that vintage look and sound with the famous Suhr playability, the C1 (Rosewood fingerboard) and the C2 (one-piece Maple neck) models are just what you have been waiting for.

The C1 model features the Classic body shape with lightweight Alder body, Maple neck with Indian Rosewood fingerboard, 60's C Standard neck shape, the Gotoh 510TS-SF1 bridge with steel block and bent saddles, Sperzel locking tuners, and a set of three ML Standard single-coil pickups. The C2 has identical specs but features a one-piece Maple neck instead of Rosewood fingerboard.

If you wanted master-built "Custom Shop" workmanship and quality without the frills and the high price, the Pro C1 and C2 models provide amazing Suhr quality along with tremendous value that you'll appreciate and enjoy for many years to come. The C1 and C2 models are available in seven popular vintage colors
