1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    Gorgeous guitar, and it no doubt plays/sounds beautiful. Congrats!

    Those Suhr's are likely nicer than any guitars I'll ever own, but doesn't stop me from appreciating the workmanship. Beautiful guitars--keep those pics coming!!

    That's the way to do a custom. That the only other one I've seen with a custom back. Such a subtle way to make it yours.

    I can tell you it may get different, but it Suhrtainly gets no better. I currently have 3 Suhrs, pictured below. My first was the Inca Silver Custom Classic that I ordered about 4 years ago. It incorporates everything I thought I wanted in a do-all Strat, and Suhr delivered. My second is a double-bound Lake Placid Blue Custom Classic T that is every bit as amazing of a Tele. The third is a Classic Pro in Surf Green that is every bit as good as the other two, just a few things not to my taste.

    I just ordered my fourth, a Cactus Green Custom Classic much like the Inca Silver one with different pickups. I love my Suhrs. I also love my PRS and Fenders. But the Suhrs get the nod when I’m heading to an unfamiliar situation. I know they will deliver in any genre I’m likely to be asked to play.

    The Classic S Pro is gone now (to another TGP member) but the Alt T Pro is still rocking hard with me.

    Just took this shot this weekend. I think you can tell which one is the Suhr.

    Recently took a group picture of my Suhr Teles so here it is. Got four more - 2 JM Pros and 2 Custom Classic S. Gotta take a picture of all of them though.

    No. Custom Order, but it was inspired by that color scheme. Everything is different.

    Modern Satin..The guitar isn't with me cause the neck broke but then John Suhr himself offered to have it fixed for free, so the guitar is in California getting a new neck... I doubt I will ever get any other brand of guitar now honestly..

    I’m poor but this guitar has a Suhr Aldrich in it. Does that count?

    I went to pickup my Suhr Bella last week and I played the best Tele I have ever played. This is coming from a guy who has owned tons of Teles and played tons of others. It was amazing! Dang it guys, I should have bought it and this thread is reminding me of what I missed out.
