It's hard to imagine that this Suhr could ever sound better than it looks, but it does! It has a wonderfully woody, percussive, articulate attack that gives way to meaty, muscular resonance. The bridge pickup has plenty of chime in the highs, beef in the lows, and bite in the mids. Positions 2 and 4 are quite quack-y and vocal, and they gave me distinct David Gilmour vibes. The neck pickup is thick and robust, with plenty of low-end response and broad, powerful midrange to go with glassy, sweet highs. Anyone looking for a piece of artwork that sounds imminently gig-worthy should check this salacious Suhr out!
This beautiful NAMM limited Suhr Modern must have been a case queen its whole life, because it shows no evidence of play wear. It's in phenomenal shape, and it comes with its original hardshell case and a certificate of authenticity.
