    Color is Fireburst.

    Indoor lighting appears "burnt orange":

    This is so cool. I have a Les Paul [R8] that I love, but this is the first guitar I've felt is 'my guitar'......guess because it's my first custom order.

    For me, it's perfect. Neck feels like what I hoped, top and color is what i hoped, finish/craftsmanship is flawless.


    Go Suhr, you won't regret it. :D :cool:

    Vey nice. I'm not a big fan of quilts but that looks pretty cool. Bet that git takes a lot of the sting out of that Saints loss yesterday, huh Craig? ;)

    What a beauty! One dumb question: Is it routed so you can pull up on the whammy?

    You won't be disappointed.


    Most expensive guitar I've ever bought, and worth every penny.

    Wow, that's a real beauty!! What is the little mini-button between the 5-way and the vol pot? Can you post the specs to the guitar (neck carve, pickups, etc.)?

    That's their 'blower switch'.

    It overrides all electronics and gives you the bridge PU, full tilt. You can set to a cool, cleanish split coil sound, and hit the switch and have a kick butt lead sound......never touching a pedal. I messed around with it, very useful idea. {I'll try to do a video demo of it soon}

    Here's the spec sheet:

    Had a custom neck plate made by Suhr too:
