    Just got this guitar and I've played it ever so gently with kid gloves (afraid to damage such a work of art). Taken $700 off the top - ouch! I personally have never seen a Suhr Koa with this type of amazing figure go for such a low price. Spec sheet is in the slideshow but the highlights are one piece curly koa top, insane koa pickguard, thornbucker and two ML singles, maple neck with rosewood board, jumbo SS frets etc. See my NGD here: http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/standard-guitars/293922-ngd-suhr-standard-flamey-koa-goodness.html

    To sweeten the pot a bit I've now added a brand new Levy's 3" padded leather strap, 3 sets of strings, and a very nice assortment of picks from Gravity, V-Picks and Dunlop!

    Bumpski - rest assured any guitar I put up for sale is being stored in its case and no longer being played while waiting for its new owner :)

    Suhr is being sold... They've promised nothing will change but... I think we've heard that story before... If you're looking for a true Suhr masterpiece with some very sick Koa that will definitely increase in value over the years as a collector piece - look no further. I truly doubt you'll ever find a comparable instrument with this grade koa for less
