We have to be honest here...  This is one of our favorite runs we've done with Suhr.  The Suhr Select Standard Plus Mahogany guitars are a collaboration between Humbucker Music and Suhr and is available in very limited numbers. This run has some considerable differences from the popular Standard Plus model. The body and neck are Genuine Mahogany instead of Basswood and Maple. The fingerboard is Ebony as opposed to Pao Ferro and we chose the Raw Nickel Thornbucker Plus in the bridge position (perfect for a mahogany body), which includes a Push/Pull pot to split the coils. We also went with the same Wilkinson Bridge used by Pete Thorn on his signature model.

The Select Standard Plus Mahogany is equipped with Suhr's much loved Even C Slim profile. The rolled edges and a 10-14" compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape. The Mahogany neck is finished in satin acrylic urethane, which provides protection from moisture and smooth playing. Each guitar also includes heavy stainless steel frets  and is set up by some of the industry's finest insuring the best possible string action, optimized playability and intonation.

Included is Suhr's SSCII system to provide noise cancellation for the single coil pickups, so every position on the 5-way switch is hum canceling.


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

About the Pickups in this Guitar:


V60 Neck and Middle: The V60 pickups faithfully recreate the classic single-coil sounds of the 60’s. These pickups use the same magnets that were used in the pickups made during this era. What you get are clear bell-like highs, warm and punchy mids, and big yet firm lows that are the hallmark of great vintage pickups, which aren't as common as one might be led to believe. John Suhr examined a variety of vintage pickups and found that some sound much better than others and took apart the great ones to find out why, measuring the gauss of the magnets to counting the number of turns of the coil wires. The V60 replicates the handwound pattern of some early-60's single-coil pickups and impart sweeter and rounder highs.

Thornbucker+ Bridge: A slightly hotter versions of the ever popular Thornbucker designed out of a need for a no-compromise, consistent set of 50's Gibson PAF style pickups with none of the downsides associated with them.  50's Gibson PAF humbucker pickups have long since been coveted for their exceptional tone and ability to play both clean and dirty.  With inspiration from Pete Thorn, Suhr has brought us the perfect set of PAF pickups, only a little hotter!
Don'tlet the price fool you, the Standard Plus Series is still built to the same quality standards you would expect from a custom Suhr, only we just do them in larger runs to save you a good bit of money. 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 Standard Plus 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 these guitars, *EVERY* step of the 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 $10,000 Customs are the guys who do it on the Standard Plus.

So what does that mean? It means if a build spec for a Standard Plus guitar matches what you're wanting, then you'd be crazy not to get it. It's the same guitar. Period. Honestly, it's a steal, and we think people should take advantage of this if it meet your desired specs.
