Suhr Modern Satin Cherry | 2017
Wow, wow, wow, wow, guys this is a truly an incredible all rounder guitar. It has been bought last November from the US and therefore is only a couple of months old from new. There are slight marks of use towards the jack input, although that is very normal as the satin finish is very light, can almost be scratched with a finger nail. You have to try it out for yourself if you've never tried one of these before, we trust it will not be with us for long.
The Suhr Cherry Modern Satin is an all-mahogany body and neck guitar that is beautiful, lightweight, and has as much tone as any guitar out there.
This model features a thin, transparent satin finish which displays the natural beauty of the African Mahogany. This thin layer of satin finish also allows the neck and body to resonate freely, producing warm, lively tones that project loud and clear. These choice tonewoods work in harmony with Suhr's top-shelf pickups to produce a wide array of tones.
Construction: The Suhr Cherry Modern Satin is absolutely designed to be a high-end tone machine without all the fancy adornments (such as inlays, gloss, fancy tops, etc) that can take away from the tone of the instrument. With its balanced asymmetrical body, 24 fret elliptical neck profile, and innovative neck heel, it provides unparalleled feel and comfort while delivering phenomenal tone.
Pickups: The combination of SSV, SSH+, and ML pickups offer vintage warmth in the neck position, high output punch with fat harmonics in the bridge position, and balanced sparkle in the middle position.
Suhr Guitars info:
Prior to founding JS Technologies Inc, John Suhr had worked at Rudy's Music Stop in New York City doing guitar repair. He started building guitars in 1974, and he created the first Suhr Custom guitar in 1984. Teaming up with Rudy Pensa they started selling guitars under the Pensa-Suhr brand, and the signature model they built for former Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler is perhaps their most famous guitar.
