Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this Suhr Standard Plus guitar with a beautiful flame maple top, figured pau ferro fretboard, and a heavenly roasted maple neck!

The HSS Suhr pickup configuration lets you split the bridge humbucker for some more vintage-based tones, or use the humbucker in its full capacity for a rich and thick bridge tone that can handle distortion quite a bit better than single-coil pickups can. Overall this axe has a bridge sound that is more aggressive and slices through a mix like a hot knife through butter while the neck and middle pickups retain some great vintage characteristics while lending themselves very well to modern applications. Access to every fret on the neck is super easy, so you can shred away all night long without any hand fatigue, whether you're playing chords or ripping creamy lead lines. The Suhr pickups have slightly hotter output than traditional single coils to help achieve that edgy Suhr tone. They're still able to convincingly pull off vintage tones as well.

The craftsmanship that went into this guitar is simply impeccable. The fretwork is phenomenal and the action is extremely low while still allowing every string to ring out clearly (and with massive amounts of sustain), plus with the stainless steel frets you basically won't ever have to worry about them wearing out. The pau ferro fingerboard is a nice complement to the snappy and aggressive tone of the Suhr as it helps to ever-so-slightly tame that a little bit. The pau ferro keeps some of that nice, round, mid-range of rosewood while having a little more top-end response to it.

This axe is for the serious guitarist who wants to play for hours on end, sound amazing doing it, and look just as good.

Manufacturer's Description

The Suhr Standard is a sleek take on the Classic design. The body is slightly downsized and has a sharper radius on the edges with slightly longer horns to give it a modern, yet classy look. The Standard is equipped with some of our most popular features including an even C slim neck profile, stainless steel frets, and our proprietary SSCII hum cancelling system. The Standard Plus is designed to inspire. From the moment you pick it up, the Standard Plus comes alive in your hands. The scraped binding, white pearl pickguard, crisp body contours and side input jack take this popular body shape to new levels of refinement and versatility.
