Even though the The Suhr Modern series of guitars are one of the most basic configurations Suhr offers, don't let that fool you into thinking they're any less of a guitar than their $8k custom models. The EXACT same quality and attention to detail is found in this guitar as the others. They are designed to bring the craftsmanship and quality of Suhr's Modern Custom line of guitars to a more attractive price while providing the player with some of Suhr's most popular appointments.
The scraped binding on the Modern's maple top and the matching colored headstock add a wonderful aesthetic to the overall look. Each Suhr Modern guitar is equipped with a Modern Elliptical neck profile, rolled edges and a 10-14" compound fingerboard radius that offers a comfortable shape. The maple neck is finished in satin acrylic urethane, which provides protection from moisture and smooth playing. Each Modern 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 pickups in this guitar:
SSV Neck: Used by top pros who need to duplicate the great classic sounds of a bygone era, the SSV pickups have a broad sonic aperture with very little compression artifacts that afflict typical high-output pickups. The SSV has a bit more honk and snarl than the competitors. 30 years of research and development by John Suhr assure you the quality of experience and workmanship behind each one of their pickups.
ML Middle: The flagship of Suhr's highly-touted single-coil pickup line, the ML incorporates the best qualities of various vintage pickups in a single design. Designed by John Suhr in conjunction with input from LA studio legend and solo artist Mike Landau, the ML sounds big and full while retaining the detailed high-end sparkle and the big tight lows of the best vintage pickups. components, these pickups complement the characteristics of the woods in your guitar.
SSH+ Bridge: Suhr's standard high-output pickup. From warm and clear clean sounds to classic rock to high-energy jazz-rock fusion to 80's metal. Using highest grade hand-selected Alnico magnets and premium components
