...thanks to John et al. for building it, Ed for emailing about it, and Wasyl at Black Creek Guitars for hooking me up. A very unique sound that exceeded my expectations (and they were pretty high).

What a fantastic looking guitar, a beautiful flame and a great finish. What's the switching set-up on it? Looks like it'd be a hell of a versatile guitar.

Congrats!

That's a beauty. Congrats. Would you mind publishing the specs and/or build order?

Thanks for the comments guys. Truth be told, I was a little worried as I tend to be a play before buying type (at least with guitars). Also, I usually have simpler, more traditional taste (ash tele please), but I love the aesthetic (does anyone have a cooler logo?) and choices available with Suhr. I'm hoping this guitar will take my playing in new directions. I went with chambering on the upper side because I wanted just a hint of air and dynamics for the humbucker tones; less than a thineline tele, more like a Baker RF. It is super versatile and doesn't sound like a tele/strat/gibson, which is a good thing! Here are the specs:

Even C Huge - very cool! I have a chambered mahogany Classic T with an even C Huge neck. I LOVE that neck carve and am sure yours is awesome!

How does a guitar like that sound?
It's really fantastic. The first thing you notice is the attack at the front of the note. Not a pop like ash or the swell of mahogany, but a biting, woody attack with a lot of top end and upper mids. These pickups are not hot, but the guitar has a lot of presence. A very slight airy quality in the lower mids with the 1/2 chamber. The neck bucker splits nicely-- more round and less bright than the middle single coil on its own. Positions 2 and 4 have some strat hollowness, but not so much quack, which is good for me. The real surprise is the bridge bucker, which is again, not too hot, but strikes a balance between aggressive and sweet--some Beckish tele-gib tones there. String definition is outstanding. The tone control is voiced really well. Fully counter-clockwise, it is soft and mellow with no mud. I usually back it off a quarter turn, and then turn it up when needed to cut through. A very versatile, articulate, and uniquely voiced guitar... I'm already playing some new tunes on it, always the mark of an inspiring instrument.

Wish I was clip enabled, but if you are really interested and want a phone demo, shoot me a PM.

Very nice! I am a little surprised they gave you the covered DSVs, since I was told that they were no longer being offered...:(

I'm sure the covered SSVs (on mine) will sound great too..:)
