What We Think

Weight: 8.5 lbs.

Wow, what a beauty! John Suhr's guitars are always finely crafted and well-appointed, but this 2016 Collection Modern is truly a work of art. The stunning Macassar Ebony top flows effortlessly into the Black Limba body, the contours making it seem like the guitar is a natural extension of your own body. The neck is sleek and sensuous and the lower body cutaway allows easy access to the upper registers. Suhr's very own Thornbucker pickups deliver unparalleled clarity and balance, no matter what your playing style, letting you dish out clean arpeggios, crunchy chords and singing leads to your heart's content. It's no exaggeration to say that this guitar takes the perfect combination of looks and substance and knocks it out of the park!
