Suhr Modern Plus HSH Guitar, Trans Blue Denim
Music Store Live is proud to present this Suhr Modern Plus with a highly figured flame maple top! The Suhr Modern series of guitars are designed for... well, you guessed it... the modern day player who's not afraid to deviate from the vintage tones of old and needs a more aggressive look and sound.
Want a strat-style axe that can melt faces and is comfortable enough to shred on until the sun comes up? Here you go! The Suhr designed pickups work together to provide a powerful and aggressive tone that does have the ability to be somewhat tamed and cleaned up. Both humbuckers can be split to achieve a thinner and glassier sound. Or, of course, run this race car at full speed for a rich, thick, and meaty tone that will be sure to turn some heads. It makes no apologies for its in-your-face sound, that's for sure. The roasted maple neck and pau ferro fretboard provide a bright and spanky sound but still have some nice mid-range presence to complement the versatile pickups. This guitar can handle anything you throw at it, whether you're looking to play clean, slightly dirty, or heavily overdriven. The pickup configuration gives you tons of options to work with and they're all extremely musical.
This is a hot-rodded Strat-fan's dream, right here. This axe looks lean and mean and is ready for some serious shredding!
The Suhr Modern is equipped with our Modern Elliptical neck profile. Rolled edges and a 10-14” compound fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.
Stainless steel frets offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation.
The sculpted heel of the Modern allows for easy access to all 24 frets. For optimum tone and stability, the neck joint must not be too tight or too loose, therefore all of our neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.
The Modern shape has a unique asymmetrical body that balances superbly with the extended 24-fret neck. Fast, sleek and sexy looking, the Modern shape will feel right at home to players who were weaned on the popular and innovative shapes that came into vogue in the 80’s.
The Basswood and Flame Maple top has a fat, well-balanced tone that produces smooth sounds without any hard edges.
Great care is taken to ensure that the thinnest possible layers of finish are applied. Our finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection, beauty, and tone. This allows the wood to resonate freely while still providing ample protection.
Scraped binding allows for the natural maple to be seen along the edge of the top wood. This painstaking and detailed process accentuates the beauty of the body shape and adds elegance to the design.
The Modern is available in two bridge/pickup configurations: HSH with a Gotoh 510 bridge, or HH with a Gotoh Floyd. Both configurations utilize a 5-way mega-switch to serve up an array of versatile split-coil tones.
The Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge features dual steel knife edge pivot points to provide greater functionality and years of trouble free performance. The 510’s steel block increases sustain and tuning stability.
Equipped with staggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.
SSV Neck Humbucker
V60LP Middle Single Coil
SSH+ Bridge Humbucker
Positions 2 and 4 on the 5-way selector switch auto-split the humbuckers when combined with the middle pickup.
The 5-way pickup selector switch gives you access to a variety of humbucking and authentic split-coil tones. The treble bleed circuit ensures consistent tone as you roll down the volume control, and is out of the circuit when the volume is on 10.
