    What can I say...
    I have literally, never been blown away by a guitar in my life till this one. It plays and sounds 100X better than it looks, so you can imagine.
    It has the lowest action I've ever had, and the unfinished neck is like a babies ass...
    John and the crew really out did themselves on this one. I honestly couldn't be happier with the outcome of this guitar....
    The bridge pup screams, the neck pup is fat and thick like a LP, and the other 3 positions are the nicest strat sound I've ever heard...even more stratty than my strat...
    So my hat's off to John Suhr and his team of craftsmen...
    I am one happy son of a B.......
    Steve

    Cool man. I love me some Suhr guitars.

    I am curious about the unfinished neck. Is it different than the tsandard satin finish???

    I personally wouldn't play something that flashy, but wow. I've seen a lot of quilted tops, and that is the most flawless I've ever come across. You have an absolute gem of a top there.

    WOW man. There are VERY few guitars that make me catch my breath and that is one of them!

    How many pennies did that set you back if you don't mind me asking? I very well could see a suhr like that in my future.

    LOL Chris....
    I'm already working on the next order...no joke. I am so damn impressed with this guitar. Not only the fit and finish, but it's a true dream to play.
    I'm sending this one back to John to have the neck profile and neck finish done the same....:D
    Did I mention that I love this new guitar???
