umm, yea, uh, sorry, I got no words right now
I know the feeling! Congratulations, now get playing!!
She's totally stunning! So, what language does she speak?
The color of those knobs, are they "parchment" or "cream"?
Excellent color - EXACTLY what I would order. Specs and impressions please!!
Course I sold both of my amps 3 days before it arrived! Which means you should bring your XTC over
Holy **** Lou thats not a neck thats a telephone pole.
That's what I was thinking too. And I thought I liked big necks! I bet it sounds sweet!
Thanks for showing the specs. The Suhr I'm ordering also has the 56 Big V contour, only mine will have 7"-9.5" radius. How do you like the neck shape?
big necks GOOOOD!
Nice axe, Lou. What does it weigh?
That neck is big, but not THAT big. The V contour and 1.65" nut make it fit the hand surprisingly well, right Lou? I have a Morgaine Mintage '57 with a very similar size/shape neck. It is easy to play, and this from someone who found the earlier Jeff Beck Strat necks too large (due to the U shape).
I LOVE it! I love soft V necks and Gibson historics, so I was going for the soft V shape, but something as big as a historic. The 56 Big V is a sharper V I think as I originally ordered that one but then switched to the soft V.
Thanks Ken. She weighs about 7 and 3/4 lbs. The neck is probably one of the biggest I've ever owned, comparable to some of my bigger historics - but it plays very well. It fits my hand perfectly. I find bigger necks easier to play on, and the big ss frets make bending so very smooth.
The guitar is very loud acoustically - I wonder if thats just good wood, or if the big ass neck has something to do with it?
The Ocean Turquoise on this thing is awesome - the above pics were shot inside with flash, here's one outside in natural light:
The first pics are more accurate, but its very cool how it changes depending on the light. John sure knows how to do Ocean Turquoise right.
And all that care surey pays off too, Ed. Thanks to all of you at Suhr for doing such a fantastic job at buliding guitars.
Sweetness...bet that humbucker is just the business!
That strat should look real nice next to your next cream colored combo!
Oh yea Steve, you know those two are gonna look and sound sweet!
