So I show-up a weekly jam with some friends only to find out the guitar I brought that evening couldn't be played due to some pup issues, so one of my buddies says he'll run home and grab another of his guitars for me to use. He comes back a few minutes later with a Suhr Pro Series S1. He had brought this particular guitar to a previous jam and I gave him some grief about this Suhr, calling it a designer guitar, a shredder guitar, etc. (he has a history of buying and selling some seriously expensive gear. So I happily plug the Suhr into my trusty Swart AST and play the S1 for a couple of hours and was BLOWN AWAY. Talk about sticking your foot in your mouth.... the light weight, insanely playable compound neck radius, incredible plekked fretwork, the Buzz Feiten tuning system - I've never played a guitar with absolutely perfect intonation up and down every fret of the neck. Wow. And the tone from the V60LP single coils and SSV humbucker in the bridge was bright and spanky with tons of sustain - the sustaining twang of the E and A strings in the lower registers sounded just incredible, almost like a piano, if that makes any sense. After carefully inspecting this guitar after playing it, I couldn't find a single blemish of any type - the fit and finish was, dare I say, absolutely perfect. So I tell my buddy "beautiful guitar, what'd you pay, like 3 or 4 grand, heh, heh". What? 1750.00? Now that's some serious coin, but...... and this coming from a guy who believes all you really need is any one of the basic food groups (ie; Strat, Tele, LP, 335, etc.). Now I can't get that damn guitar out of my head and even worse, I actually want one. Bad. OMG - I need a 14th guitar like a hole in my head! So am I crazy or are these new Suhr Pro Series guitars as incredible as I think they are?
