  • WHAT IS PRO SERIES

Introducing the new Suhr Modern Pro line! Designed to bring the craftsmanship and quality of Suhr's Modern line of guitars to a more affordable price while providing the player with Suhr's most popular appointments. These guitars are light, toneful and perfectly balanced. Utilizing a Basswood body and Maple top, a fat, well-balanced tone can be achieved that produces smooth sounds without any harsh overtones. The finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection and beauty, while the thinnest possible coats of finish are applied to allow the wood to resonate freely and still provide ample protection.

Each Modern Pro is equipped with a Modern Elliptical neck profile, rolled edges and a 10-14” compound fingerboard radius that offers a comfortable shape. The quartersawn Maple neck is finished in satin acrylic urethane, which provides protection from moisture and smooth playing. Each Modern Pro includes jumbo stainless steel frets and by using the PLEK process on each instrument, it guarantees the best possible string action, optimized playability and eliminates intonation problems plagued by many guitars.

About the Pro Series: So what is the difference between a Suhr Custom and a Suhr Modern Pro? Nothing! The Modern Pro is a fixed spec guitar with different finishes. With Suhr Custom guitars, you can practically customize every spec of your guitar. The Modern Pro guitars use the most common specs requested by players, allowing the EXACT same quality as a Custom, but at a better price.

Don't let the price fool you, the Pro Series is still built to the same quality standards you would expect from Suhr, only we just do them in larger runs to save you a serious chunk of change. These are made with the same woods, components, hands, and processes (including the PLEK machine) that make the custom Suhr guitars.

With Custom Suhr Guitars: Each Suhr Custom guitar is built precisely to the customer's specs. Special woods, special inlays, neck shapes, fret sizes, colors, electronics, you name it. That whole process is a lengthy one and requires lots of special attention along the way to insure a custom Suhr is *EXACTLY* as the customer specified. IN addition, the machines that cut cut the necks, bodies, etc have to be reprogrammed for each guitar. The paint shop has to change everything up for each individual guitar. You get the picture.

With Pro Series Suhr Guitars: The specs are all set and fixed for the entire run. Same body/neck woods, electronics, neck shapes, fret sizes, etc. We get together with Suhr and select the most common specs that customers request for a specific model, change up the colors a bit for variation, and do a run of 50+ at a time. But here's where the story gets more interesting... With the pro series, *EVERY* step of the Pro Series build process is exactly like the Custom build process. The same pickups, hardware, woods, etc are used for the Pro series. The same PLEK machines are used on the Pro Series. The same guys that do the setups and final finishing on the Customs are the guys who do it on the Pros.

So what does that mean? It means if a build spec for a Pro Series guitar matches what you're wanting, then you'd be crazy not to get the Pro. :) It's the same guitar. Period. Honestly, it's a steal, and we think people should take advantage before Suhr comes it it's senses and does away with the Pro Series. They already had a major price increase recently on the Pros, which came *after* we scheduled our special runs, so we're still able to offer them at the old price. After they're gone, you can expect to see a price increase of $500+ per Pro Series guitar. No joke... Get them while you can at these prices.
