    Get on a list somewhere if possible. Good luck, I hope it works out.

    I did a little noodling clip the day I got it on my iphone in the OP. It's literally just that day I got it and farting around trying to learn a bit about how it sounds. I'm a rocker, so it's mostly heavy sounds there. You can skip around in there and at least hear something.

    Wow, just checked it out. Amazing pattern and great angle on the bookmatch, the dead spot above the pickup selector is a bit of a shame though.

    I don't see a dead spot. Looks great to me!

    Ain’t no dead spot. Look at -3:03
    It depends what angle you look at it and the grain moves

    Sorry, was talking about the one from your IG that they mentioned, should've linked it. I know it's one of the risks of doing a solid carvetop, my quilt R0 has one too (also angle dependent, but the carve shape has clearly revealed a section with a different quilt pattern from the rest) but it's one of those things that's just so close to perfect that my eye is drawn to the part that isn't.



    The one in the OP is bona fide gorgeous from edge to edge.

    Just a bad iPhone photo and bench lighting. That one is also great in person. Every angle will give you a different view with these deep curly maple tops. I decided Curly would be the most interesting.

    I tried hard to contain and wait knowing that would be the answer.

    It’s ridiculously good.

    You may have already answered this, but what was the time frame between ordering and the guitar being delivered.

    There have been some delays and there is an update on the Suhr Website about it here: https://www.suhr.com/aura-production-update/

    The guitars were launched at Namm 2018, and I placed a pre-order within a couple weeks of that if I remember. So, like 15 mos or so. I would have no problem waiting until 100 is done to get one though. Totally worth it!
