What we say:
guitarguitar has had a long and rewarding relationship with Suhr guitars. In recent years we have taken that relationship to new levels by developing what we refer to as guitarguitar Select models. This exclusive collaboration between Suhr and guitarguitar results in some truly special, one-of-a-kind instruments.
All Select guitars feature woods that we have personally selected during trips to the Suhr factory in Lake Elsinore, California. We select the timbers based on figure for tops and weights for back body woods. Neck blanks are picked for resonance and/or figure. There is no particular ‘House Style’ with our guitar guitar Select Suhrs: we have a selection of Classics, Moderns, Standards and more, all with spectacular wood choices and hardware. Every single guitar is unique: an example of bespoke guitar crafting at it’s finest.
This guitarguitar Select Classic model has a body made of Paulownia (otherwise known as Princess Tree) which is a light, resonant and tightly grained tonewood. This has been finished in a very specific shade of two-tone sunburst. The neck is one piece maple, fitted with 22 stainless steel frets over a compound 9-12" radius for easy chording and choke-free lead playing. We find this to be the best overall fit for vintage and more modern playing styles.
We chose some great hardware to go with these wonderful woods, too: a trio of Suhr's ML Classic single coils supply the bite and chime we were looking for whilst a Gotoh 510 steel bridge is our favourite high-quality tremolo. We wanted this guitar to be instantly familiar but retain a rarefied, world class feel and sound. Suhr exceeded our expectations, as usual! This is a guitar that just gives and gives, with a sparkle and grunt that expresses your own personality as you play. And to cap it all off, this guitar bears the signature of John Suhr himself.
