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.

Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

The Modern Plus features a roasted maple neck with pau ferro or maple fingerboard. The Modern Plus retains many of the original specifications of the Modern Pro including the sleek elliptical neck profile, balanced asymmetrical body, innovative neck heel and stunning flame maple top. Proprietary Suhr locking tuners and the Gotoh 510 tremolo provides superior tuning stability.
