    The middle one is a new Bengal Burst Modern CT. Vulcanized maple neck with Guthrie profile, Aldrich pups, 10-14" BFTS, jumbo SS frets, maple/basswood. The Guthrie neck is AMAZING...thanks guys. A quick shot of the family before the CT goes back to Suhr for adjustments. Muy bueno!

    I'll bet John Suhr knows - you may want to ask him. Just my $0.02.

    They 'bake' the neck and it turns dark. Supposed to make it moisture proof/more stable.

    Basically it is baked in an oxygen free kiln after the normal drying process and very high temperature until the point where all the organic elements, sap, and everything else is baked out. It rings like a bell and is ultra stable. You can soak one side of the wood with water and it wont move shrink, bend. These are extremely stable and have excellent tonal properties. Every guitar I make for myself will be vulcanized. We are also building some with no truss rods.

    Hey John, it's Lee Wertman. This process you're describing is really interesting. What do you feel it does to the tone? I was talking to Scott Henderson the other day and I started getting in the mood to order another Suhr if I ever got the dough together. And this vulcanizing piques my interest even more! Hope you're well and life is good.
