Description

Fans of more modern leaning guitars will find lots to love about this gently used 2017 Suhr Standard. Twin humbuckers and a mahogany body/maple top bring a bit more Gibson to the party than your average Strat, making it perfect for players who love the comfort of a Strat but want the punch of a Gibson tonally. 

One of the first things we noticed when sitting down for a session is the neck carve - an "Even C Fat" - which clocks in at .880-.960. This is quite a bit chunkier than most Suhrs we've encountered and being fans of larger neck carves, we really loved how it paired with the satin finish, 10-14" radius, and jumbo stainless frets. Suffice it to say, this is an incredibly deluxe playing guitar - effortless would be an understatement! To be sure, this is a hallmark of all Suhr guitars....we're just smitten with this fatter neck. 

Plugged in, the Suhr humbuckers deliver a modern, muscular tone with a beautiful top end clarity and snap. You can really hear the mahogany's influence in the midrange which does indeed bring in some of the Gibson flavor we referenced earlier. With the HSH guard and 5-way switch, we can only imagine 

Currently fitted with a twin humbucker guard, this Standard also comes with a white humbucker/single/humbucker pickguard, which is loaded with a Suhr single coil pickup in the middle position. A 5-way switch is also included so it'd be quite easy to swap out the guards, upping the versatility even further. 

Condition: Like-new. 

John Suhr's reputation for making flawless instruments is well established and a few minutes with this beauty will easily show new-comers to Suhr why. This is just a killer, modern Strat style guitar, period. Priced with hardshell case, spec sheet, trem bar, and wrenches.
