    Your trem bar is the wrong color :D Seriously, that's one of the best looking Suhr's I've ever seen (which is saying alot)!

    It's very nice looking, forsure...but I think you've been bamboozled! They totally put that guitar together backwards.

    Thanks guys. It's a really sweet fiddle indeed.

    Although, I thought it was a bit strange that the trem arm is black . . . detracts from the look of the guitar IMHO.

    Mark . . it's a basswood body with maple top

    Sounds fantastic unplugged. Plugged in it's a little darker with a little less top end than I expected for a basswood body/maple top/maple neck guitar. I would have expected something brighter. I think the Suhr's pickups influence the plugged in tone tremendously. It's a little more midrangey and darker than my alder strat which is very woodsy and organic sounding. Need to either get used to the pickups or swap 'em. It feels and plays like a dream though.

    Cheers
