    Only had it a day, wow this is a cool one!!
    Maple/Basswood, Maple neck. Nice touch John with the gold abalone dots.
    I had the neck tinted a little extra and love the color with the gold top.
    Definately Rocks. Tone review soon

    I want to thank Steve at High Desert Guitars for treating me so well. He's a new Suhr dealer and has a couple beauties in there. :AOK http://www.highdesertguitars.com/

    Had a little "quality" time with it now. Gotta say I love this neck carve (Even C medium) More different than I expected from the vintage C Standard on my classic. Similiar to the 62 roundback on my Anderson. John did rolled edges for me, giving it that "broken in" feeling. The sound at first was a little bright to my ears but I think it was the strings (SOS on the way) After a little break in time Im loving the tone!! The arsenal of sounds this guitar offers is impressive. Singles sound crisp and wonderfully articulate, not brittle or harsh. My first Humbucker in many years so its taking a little while to get used to, but Im loving it. This guitar rocks!!
    The workmanship is pretty much what I expected.. perfection.
    If you havent played a Suhr, you owe it to yourself to try one.
    *I feel the same about Anderson too ;)

    thanks john...i think that's the color i'm getting then...in a picture at wildwestguitars.com it was listed as "gold finish"...decided to go with that color.
