What We Think

The Suhr modern is one of those guitars we always try to have on hand. It's simply so versatile, vibrant, and easy to play that we couldn't imagine life without one. Whether it's your go to gig guitar, well-worn workhorse, or favorite fiddle for futzing around at home it'll serve you dutifully! The SSV, V60LP, and SSH pickups will capture every facet of your playing in stunning detail and offer whatever tone you want to pull out of the light and resonant basswood/maple body. And just like any one of John Suhr's wonderful instruments, the neck feels smoother than butter and comfier than your favorite recliner.
