Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

A completely new shape designed by John Suhr, the Modern shape has a unique asymmetrical body that balances superbly with the extended 24-fret neck. Fast, sleek and sexy looking, the Modern shape will feel right at home to players who were weaned on the popular and innovative shapes that came into vogue in the 80's. The neck heel has been completely redesigned for easy access but a lot of attention also went into maximum transfer of string vibrational energy between the body and the neck, producing a big, balanced and acoustically brilliant tone.
