    Picked it up this morning from the boys at Make 'n Music. Killer one-piece lightweight swamp ash body with Mary Kaye finish. Vintage body radius (i.e. no contours except by neck/body). V60's in neck and middle positions; Suhr Broadcaster bridge pickup. 5 way blade; push-pull tone pot to engage bridge pickup.

    When playing in the in-between position between the neck and middle pickups, and engaging the bridge pickup, it gives one of the most smokin tones I have ever heard. Very cool to hear the out-of-phase tone, with a bit of added bite to top things off.

    Very, very nice grain popping through the Mary Kaye. Tortoise pickguard. Looks great.

    Just a great axe. As usual, thanks for the fine work John.

    I would have provided pics, but it is too late in the day to snap photos with natural sunlight. Thus, maybe some photos tomorrow.

    Thanks for the kind words Jon. I played it a bit earlier this evening. It's a really, really nice piece of work.

    I took a couple pics today, but it was really gray outside. No decent natural sunlight; thus, they only turned out "o.k.". The guitar looks much better than the pics, so I decided not to post them.

    As soon as we get a nice sunny day here in Chicago, I will snap a few good photos and post them. The finish is beautiful.

    I tried a MK Suhr at Maken a couple of months ago with Jato - it was really nice. I resisted but Jato did pull out the cc for another Suhr.

    Congrats on your new guitar. I've never owned a Suhr but the 2 or 3 I've played were killer axes and the specs on yours sounds like it would cover a lot of ground tonewise.
