    I think there are a lot of good Suhr dealers.
    "My" Suhr dealer is Overland express, and I'm very happy with.

    One Flight Up guitars in New Haven, CT have a great relationship with Suhr and can take care of you.

    Juniors Music in Clinton ,CT will also treat you right.

    Both dealers have a bunch in stock!

    I can very highly recommend both IndoorStorm (Eddie) and Noyes Guitars (Jeff); both extremely helpful and personable.

    My answer is Tone Merchants...

    www.tonemerchants.com

    Ed Yoon (aka alexkahn on this board) used to run the business before he took off to work for Suhr...

    TM has been handed over to a guy that Ed hired named Noel... Hella cool guy... Due to the close relationship that Ed and Noel have with each other and with John Suhr, I think that this would be the place to go...

    I've bought two Suhr guitars from Ed and Noel... Tone Merchants is awesome.

    As a second, I really like Eddie over at Indoorstorm... I purchased a Suhr there as well!

    Alpha Music and ask for HL. He went out of his way with my classic that I special ordered.

    I also highly recommend Eddie at Indoor Storm in Raleigh NC. He is one of the most profession and courteous people I have ever known.
    He also takes exceptionally good care of his inventory. Most of his Suhr guitars don't hang out on display. They are kept in their cases in the back room.

    Wildwest is great to deal with. Brian and Rob know their stuff. I have bought two Suhrs from them.

    Indoor Storm is great, as is Atlanta Music Brokers in Roswell GA.

    I've had two crappy experiences with Wildwest - your luck might be different but they were rude and less than helpful when I was trying to buy a BadCat.

    I've been to Tone Merchants (when Ed ran the place), Junior's, and One Flight Up. Brought some t-shirts at TM and brought my Reverend Goblin at Junior's. Haven't purchased anything at One Flight Up, but know the guys there used to work with John Suhr. Junior's seems to be becoming a pretty big player with some of these companies. Paul's a good dealer and gets a +1 from me!

    I also had a pretty good experience with WildWest. I love my Suhr and they were very helpful and prompt with delivery. My only beef was that the guitar came with dead strings. For the amount of money I spent on it I think they could have strung it up with a fresh set. Not that it mattered much because I changed to my gauge right away.

    Get on a plane and go to Juniors in Clinton, CT, He has the best guitarsin any store I have been in. He has a bunch of suhr guitars in stock and every great amp ever made in stock as well. Great guy and a great store. Its worth the ticket to come up here.
    Now go:D

    I was just in Guitar Hangar in Brookfield, Ct. and Rick Tedesco has 4 Suhrs in stock (2 limited editions). Rick is a great guy to do bussiness with.

    Just ordered my second Suhr from them. They're just a hop, skip and jump from where I live. Well worth the drive (it's always fun just to pop in and drool over their inventory). Teddy or Shane will take care of you.

    I just bought a Suhr Classic T from Eddie at Indoor Storm today. He was a real pleasure to work with.

    I also bought a Suhr Classic Strat from Jeff Noyes at Noyes Guitars awhile back. Also a great guy to work with.

    Hey maybe Suhr has all good dealers? ;)
