This Custom Classic JM is Suhr-tainly fantastic! What stands out most about this serial is its even frequency response, fantastic note separation and open, airy top end. The neck pickup uses warm low-midrange to build a foundation for a transparent high end, and this gives it a round-yet-clear voice perfect for just about any rhythm guitar part. The bridge pickup has more chime and quack in the upper-mids and trebles, and the highs have a singing, sweet quality to them (that's not to say it can't give you phenomenal searing lead tones when you pick hard, though!). This serial's natural chime also translates to lush, crunchy rhythm tones in the bridge position, too! Anyone seeking an balanced JM-style guitar that will sound great in every genre from rock to jazz to metal will fall madly in love with this Suhr!
