Suhr Modern Plus – Curly Maple
Tonal EvaluationThis curly maple monster from our friends at Suhr is a versatile beast with pickups full of sonic treat! Its attack is percussive and articulate, but it never veers into unpleasant territory--it just catches every nuance and detail of your right-hand technique. This makes for a dynamic playing experience! It's a joy to sit with this Suhr and chunk away on rhythms, because the incredible detail motivates you to play familiar riffs and progressions with new vim and vigor!
Speaking of vigor, this Bengal Burst beast has a tiger's worth of bite in midrange. THe lows are woody and well-defined, the trebles are crystalline and clear, and the mids have plenty of snarl and snap. It's also quite touch sensitive, and you can really shape the sound of the guitar with your fingers. Having such control over the dynamic response of the instrument makes you want to put the soul in solo. I know I did when I subjected my coworkers to meandering jazz for ten minutes (sorry, guys!). Warning: this Suhr is so expressive that it may make you consider throwing your pedalboard in the trash!
Anyone searching for a Suhr with a bit more attitude than usual will love this touch-sensitive, versatile Modern Plus!
