What We Think

Condition: Used, Great

Wow! What an incredible guitar. This one fuses all of the incredible playability and versatility that the moderns are known for with a very sleek, very classy aesthetic. The binding ties in well with the zebra pickups which ties in incredibly well with the smooth and gorgeous roasted maple neck.

This one can absolutely scream; don't let this one pass you by!

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

The Suhr Modern features: a balanced asymmetrical body, a 24 fret elliptical neck profile, and innovative neck heel.

The innovative Suhr Modern is our high-performance take on the 24 fret design. From the speed and precision of Fusion to the pounding rhythms of Metal, the Modern is designed to deliver on every level.

With its sleek elliptical neck profile, balanced asymmetrical body, and innovative neck heel, the Modern delivers unmatched playability and comfort. Top quality wood selection and lustrous finishes make the Modern as stunning to look at as it is to play.

Quality tonewoods and Suhr pickups ensure the Modern is never short on tone. If the ultimate in performance and beauty is what you are after, look no further than the Suhr Modern.


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.
