    I had just checked that out!!

    I wonder why they didn't do an overdrive clip? Noise is not as big of an issue with an amp set clean.

    I'm assuming the point was to show you the single-coil tone, not the noiseless feature. I'm taking their word that there is no hum. (Maybe I shouldn't, but I'm more interested at this point in how a noiseless pickup sounds - and this (to me) is best demonstrated using a clean tone.)

    I have no doubt about the quality of that guitar, or even in terms of tone, but I find it hard to justify the 4 grand retail thing.

    Despite the ne pickups, it's still a bolt-on rosewood on maple neck into an alder body, nothing fancy. You can get a couple used Andersons with that amount of dough (suposing it'll sell for around 3,2 grand).

    I've heard the system ABC'd with a stock Suhr, the noiseless suhr and a Tyler Studio Elite. All three guitars are nice but the noiseless Suhr was scary quiet without the muffled sound of some noiseless rigs.
    I was playing through an OD100 and clean or high gain the pickups were dead quiet. Well worth the money IMHO. You're probably looking at closer to $3000 street.

    John,

    Have dealers inquired about sending some (or all) of their invetory back for the mod? It seems that mostly everyone would want this option and their current invetory would sit around. what would you recommend if a dealer had a classic model in stock that I liked but didn't have the new noiseless system? Have them ship it back it you and drop ship it to me. Or me buy it as is and deal with you direct?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    I've very impressed with the sound. What's the wait time for a Suhr these days? I'm going to have to get a classic with the noiseless system when I get over the money I've already spent on an Anderson Atom and a Drop Top.

    There aren't any dealers in Washington as far as I can tell. :(

    Washington State (Seattle area in particular). How do I get in contact with First Choice? Do they have samples, etc?

    Thanks!

    Has anyone done the leg/web work to find a very similar recorded Suhr guitar on the same page without the noiseless system with the same amp settings? A comparison would be really useful.

    FYI,

    those down-under pickups run about US$260.

    still, a "noiseless" V60LP is quite tantalizing, and IMHO, of the new fangled strats coming out these days, a Suhr will forever be tops in my book. :dude

    I would love for someone to do an in-depth comparison of Suhr noiseless vs. Kinman pickups.

    Here is a pretty good comparison. Sounds like the amp settings are similar if not the same:

    So would I. If you go to the Kinmann homepage you can see that Scot Henderson uses Kinmanns new 56 mkll pu's

    Totally different technologies. I like the Kinman's but love the Suhr noiseless. I'll leave the tech specifics to John or Ed Yoon.

    Once again--you really have to experience the difference firsthand. Sound clips don't convey how annoying 60 cycle hum can be, or how strange it is for a guitar with 3 single coils to be that quiet on the neck-middle-bridge settings.

    Just my $.02

    Im curious but can they be more silent than Kinmans. mine meks no noise at all. Obviously I cant judge wether they sound better or not compared to the new Suhr noiseless system. I wonder if they'll be for sale ad hoc.

    Nice! Any ETA on when it will be ready? Any idea how much it'll cost?

    Thanks!

    Will it be designed to fit in a regular Strat cavity without routing?

    I think there's some minor routing involved.
