    Hi guys,
    I have a Suhr Classic that I have enjoyed, but I am seriously thinking about selling it and picking up a Nash strat instead. I have just heard great things about the mojo and vibe of these Nash instruments. So what do you think? Any opinions?

    I'd keep the Suhr, but you should do what YOU want to do.

    I would keep the Suhr, and when finances allow, pickup a Nash. I have a Nash on order, and I'm expecting it to give me a different vibe and tonal flavor than what the Suhr currently does. Both are exceptional instruments.

    Play the heck out of your Suhr, until it has its own mojo going on.....

    Have you tried a Nash? I would do that before considering selling your Suhr...

    totally diff guitars.

    Suhrs are very slick feeling, very fine-tuned

    Nashes are more like an old fender with alot of that funky mojo that some people really dig. tons of vibe, but not as "slick" as the suhr.

    either way, i prefer a 6 screw trem on a strat.

    I love the vintage vibe of old guitars. There are a few modern guitars that offer that to the nth degree. But in addition to the cool parts of vintage vibe, be prepared to live with bad parts too. IMHO Suhr offers the best of both worlds. Depending on the tone you want, you may want to experiment with different pickups. But the building blocks are there!
