    Congrats John (and the rest of the team), well deserved recognition!

    And big thanks for the wonderful S3 I've been playing since May, it's the most perfect guitar I've ever laid my hands on.

    YES ! ! ! ! Congrats to John...... not just for being on the cover of Premier, but for becoming who I believe is one of the best designers and producers of electric guitars on the market today. The two Suhrs I have are fantasic guitars.....flawless craftsmanship, killer tone and just a blast to play. Suhr guitars rock !

    Best guitars out there. Best value. Best customer service. My 4th Suhr is on its way right now.

    I only play Suhrs now, other than one Benedetto for solo jazz work.

    Congratulations John and gang for the well-deserved recognition!!!

    Very cool. Nice shirt! Was that one from the bootleg eBay guy? :D Just kidding. Where do I get one?!?

    My first reaction was "ONLY 10 years?" I remember when the webstie first went up. Went through several computer keyboards because of the :drool I'd been looking at Suhrs since first seeing Knopfler with a Pensa-Suhr, but was only recently able to get one. I had two spec'd out for years, always knowing they HAD to be from Suhr, and my nearest dealer got one of 'em in almost to a T :)D.) Sold a BUNCH of stuff to get that, but I've never looked back and it's mine for life. Best guitar I've touched. I honestly know that it has helped sell a few others, and that's just awesome if you ask me.

    And it just so happened that the Badger was exactly what I had been looking for in an amp for several years, too. That was a LONG year waiting after the first NAMM showing to the actual release.

    While I honestly didn't intend to go all Suhr, I'm suhrtainly not complaining. I just haven't told my wife about the prices, that's all. :AOK

    Great article. I'm so glad they posted the whole thing on their site, too, for those of us that don't want to subscribe but want to read the article for John's sake!

    Johnny,
    It was a true pleasure and honor working with you. You are one of the most talented people I know. In my humble opinion, you make one of the finest guitars on the market today. Congratulations my friend on your well deserved success! It's hard to believe it's been 10 years though, although it's hard to believe I'm 50 too. I guess time flies, eh? Happy Holidays to you Aura and the kids, be happy and well always!
