    I picked up my used Suhr standard tonight, and got to use it at practice. Wow! Besides for being beautiful (ssh, trem, Orange quilted top, birdseye maple neck w/no inlays, etc. ) it played like butter, and sustained unlike any bolt on neck I've ever owned before. It really sounded great with the neck pickup on my clean channel. Life is good! :AOK

    O man! Hot, hot, hot! Thanks for sharing the pic. I'm a sucker for a dotless FB with figured maple.

    What are the specs? And where'd you get it used? I probably would have bought it if I'd seen it first. ;)

    He makes incredible guitars.

    Too bad he doesn't make a Les Paul replica.

    I recently got a Suhr Classic. First Suhr I ever played. What an amazing guitar! Comparable to my Grosh set neck in terms of build quality, attention to detail, playability, and beautiful, ringing tone.

    Congrats on a sweet guitar. I've owned my Classic since 03, and won't part with it!

    He is working on a 24.75" mensur, single cut with set neck.
    Planned for release during 2008...
