I'm sure many of us have enjoyed JST products and stellar customer service and wish them all the best moving forward. In that spirit, what would you like to see from JST in the future?

Myself, I've always wanted to see John take a stab at a single cut design that would be a sibling to his Modern line up.

On a related note, I would own a Modern if they offered a thicker neck and different neck shapes.

I'd be interested to see what a Suhr style jazz box (ES350/Byrdland) might look like :)

High quality guitars made in the US by Suhr with MSRPs in the $1200 range (or less). I suspect money can be saved using less pretty wood together with opaque finishes.

Default 1.687 nut width on Pro series. I tried the narrow nut for a long time and it's just not for me.

Scale length choices.

The Modern Satin series is pretty much as stripped down as you can get and they're still $2000. And they were that price even without the steel frets.

I think they were the best when it was John and Kenny building every guitar as a custom order. Those guitars were really exceptional. There is no going back to that unfortunately.

I trust them to figure out stuff I'd never thought of.. But if you insist, I'd be interested in (maybe limited runs?) a classic pro t-style with comfort contours, and standard satin (modern satin wood and appointments) with a Gotoh fixed bridge. :)

Easy...I want to see John and the existing crew to continue to be involved and for there to be no changes in how they do business. Don't change a thing & continue the Suhr legacy.

For full transparency, I do not own a Suhr, but have been incredibly impressed with their products and approach toward customers.

A shortscale (24 3/4") option on their models would be nice, but really, what they've been doing has been fine as it is, so as long as they keep on keeping on, they'll be fine by me.

Come to their senses on selling to a pink sheet and undo that deal.
Why do you feel so qualified to have that strong on an opinion on the guys business? I just cant figure out how you guys all claim to know how these deals work yet you obviously have no idea what he did or didnt do or even what the details of the actual deal are. You are literally telling an intelligent grown man what to do with his company, his name and his $. In my world thats considered to be rude and unhelpful.

Better descriptions of their different models of pickups on the website. Some descriptions of their single coil models are almost identical, and offer no way of differentiating between them.

Seymour Duncan-style soundclips would be nice and they don't have so many pickup models that it would be impossible.
