Looks awesome! And btw, your whole gear room looks incredibly neat!
I assure you there are three other walls in that room that look like something between a mad scientist's lair and an exploded piñata.
Ahhhh what does he know
I keeeeeed I keeeeeeeeed
I know. Who is that rando stooge
Forealtho, @Husky , thanks for building an outstanding instrument!
Plays very nicely with the Twilighter! Light whammy-ing + pitch-shifting amp vibrato = trippy goodness
Looks awesome. Is that a white or parchment pickguard?
I'm 90% sure it's parchment, but I'll check the spec sheet when I get home.
I LOVE that Surf Green with Rosewood FB scheme! The bridge HB is a great spec too! I tend to live on the neck or neck/middle for my clean/rhythm work. (And the neck PU for Gilmour-esque solo tone) But the Bridge humbucker would be like having a turbo charge bridge PU for solo's that could be super fun.
I just played a Suhr Classic Antique SSS at my local shop last week to demo an amp. Imagine my surprise when I loved the guitar so much, I cant get it out of my head and I'm going back to play it again. But I will also try your SSH configuration when I'm there if they have one. Looks great man!
Does yours have the SCII single coil humcancelling electronics? That is very desirable. How well does it work?
I think that if I ever pony up for an expensive Strat (expensive for me is $1k+) I'll probably go with an HSS Suhr. In Shell Pink. I've never actually played one, but from everything I've heard (and I mean demos and sound samples, not anecdotes) they sound like a Strat, but somehow 'better'. And anecdotally I've heard they play/feel amazing, to boot!
The SCII system works well! Quiet operation throughout. Single coil hum never bothered me too much, but coming from someone who didn’t pay much attention to the hum when it was there, it is nevertheless noticeably absent to me now. Hope that makes sense.
Note: on the HSS config, the tone knobs are uniquely assigned. Tone knob closest to the volume knob controls positions neck, neck+middle, middle, and middle+bridge. The remaining tone knob is assigned to the HB by itself. I find this extremely useful.
Thanks for the great reply!
Another reason someone might buy a Suhr vs. a Fender-- how freaking cool is it that you can post a NGD on here and know that Mr. Suhr himself cares enough to come on here and comment. Love my Suhrs for their playability, looks, and tone-- but it's also awesome knowing the man himself is actively out here engaging with our community, making sure his customers are satisfied, and very publicly standing by his brand.
I love my Fenders, too, by the way. There's room in my heart (and my music room) for both!
Congrats on a hot ass Suhr!!
I got a antique on the way myself.
Looks exactly like my 2018 Ltd Classic Pro with roasted maple neck in surf green. The best playing guitar I own.
Congratulations OP! Beautiful guitar.
My personal experience has been that every Suhr I played, I preferred to every Anderson I played, or owned.
Of course, as with everything, ymmv
not a strat guy.. but nice color
That's a great guitar. I have a few Tom Andersons, and still lust after one of these.
Congrats, awesome guitar!
I was just about to say the same thing. I started reading before I scrolled down to see the pic and, in my head, I was picturing something like a tobacco burst or maybe fiesta red but this is fantastic! It's rare you see a Suhr in seafoam! (Apologies if this is considered surf green, it looked seafoam to me)
that is the exact same Suhr including color on my wish list.
It is indeed parchment
