What We Think

Weight: 7.6 lbs.

You just gotta love the combination of such a beautiful top wood and cocobolo neck! This guitar is really something to behold with its sleek design and beautiful aesthetic. I really dig the feel of its modern elliptical neck, and the ebony fingerboard provides a beautiful feel for sliding about its sleek and fast profile with the greatest of ease. If looks are not enough to convince you then the tone will surely make you a believer. From sparkling smooth cleans to bluesy grit and screaming overloaded leads, this ax will never disappoint the discerning ear. With a five-way selector switch, neck-humbucker coil split push/pull tone knob, and custom 3rd position pickup configuration that splits both humbuckers you will never need to worry about being able to find the tone you need to fit in a mix. Finally, hit the blower switch to bypass everything and set the guitar to a full volume/full tone bridge humbucker for all your soloing needs. This guitar brings the house down and does it in full style!

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.
