The Suhr Modern Plus is essentially a renamed Modern Pro, with the addition of a roasted maple neck. The middle pickup has also been changed from an ML to the V60LP. The Modern Plus uses some of the most common appointments of custom built Moderns.

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. The neck is now constructed with roasted maple providing more stability and a darker aesthetic.

Each Modern Plus is equipped with a Modern Elliptical neck profile, rolled edges and a 10-14" compound fingerboard radius that offers a comfortable shape. The Roasted Maple neck is finished in satin acrylic urethane, which provides protection from moisture and smooth playing. Each Modern Plus includes jumbo stainless steel frets and is optimized for superior playability.

So what is the difference between a Suhr Custom and a Suhr Modern Plus? Nothing at all! The Modern Plus is a fixed spec guitar with different finishes. With Suhr Custom guitars, you can practically customize every spec of your guitar. The Modern Plus 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:

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.

V60LP Middle: Faithfully recreates the classic single-coil sounds of the 60's. These pickups also 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 V60LP replicates the handwound pattern of some early-60's single-coil pickups and impart sweeter and rounder highs.

SSH+ Bridge: Suhr's standard high-output pickups. 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, these pickups complement the characteristics of the woods in your guitar.
