    If my experience with my first Suhr Classic is any indication, you guys are going to be in guitar heaven! I was an HB only guy but this guitar is by far my favorite guitar these days. It has been for the last 5 months that I've had it! Good choice on a lot of guitar for the money. PLay like a dream too.

    FYI - I had a November build date I've been told not to expect mine till January. I think they're running 1-2 months behind currently.....

    :(

    You can not rush fine art, gents. :) Awesome guitars and worth the wait. Now it's time to start planning your second.

    I ordered mine about the same time as you with the same finish time frame and was recently told the beginning of January. They are running about a month behind.

    Thanks for the update, Ed. Tim said 3 more weeks for mine, and thats not bad at all!

    Certainly, no need to rush a work of art. Of course, its nice to know when things slip - I'm sure we all understand..:)

    I completely understand. I think I speak for others here, that we appreciate your approach of not letting scheduling become more important than quality. I'm sure most Suhr customers have other fine guitars to keep them busy in the meanwhile.
