About the Pickups in this Guitar:

Suhr ThornBucker Pickups are 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, while also bringing them into the modern age. The ThornBucker pickups have 4 conductor wiring (ability to coil tap) and a variety of spacing options.

The neck pickup in this guitar features a raw nickel covered Thornbucker, while the bridge is a matching, slightly hotter version known as the ThornBucker Plus.

Don't let the price fool you, the Modern 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 Modern 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 Modern Plus.

So what does that mean? It means if a build spec for a Modern 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.
