Never reaching the end

Never meaning to send
With these eyes before
Just what the truth is
I can't say any more
Yes I love you
Oh how I love you
Music Store Live is proud to present this Suhr Modern in a white satin finish!
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 something with a bit more edge to it. 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. This guitar can handle anything you throw at it, whether you're looking to play clean, slightly dirty, or heavily overdriven. But once you get it in your hands, you'll likely just want to shred on it. The playability is off the charts and the tone wants to hit the front of your amp hard and with some anger (in the best of ways). The rosewood fingerboard helps keep this from being overly bright and shrill - it compliments the guitar very well. The mahogany neck and body add some nice mid-range presence to the overall sound which definitely helps when adding some saturation to the tone. All the while, the Floyd Rose hardware lets you wail away on the trem without ever having to worry about staying in tune.
If you're looking to turn some heads with your tone as well as with the looks of your axe, this guitar will suit you on stage, in the studio, or at home jamming with some buddies. Either way, it's not a guitar you're ever going to outgrow.
There are many reasons to love African Mahogany: it is beautiful, it sounds great, and it is lightweight. The Modern Satin was created to celebrate the sound and beauty of this tone wood. The thin layer of satin finish allow the neck and body to resonate freely, producing a wide variety of tones from warm articulate Jazz lines to tight aggressive Metal riffs. Modern Satin’s tone is always loud and clear. The Modern Satin is equipped with our Modern Elliptical neck profile. Rolled edges and a straight 14” fingerboard radius offers an extremely comfortable shape. The African Mahogany neck is finished in satin, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture. The Modern Elliptical neck is a fast and sleek shape with enough girth for you to really grab onto when you want to dig in for wild string bends or playing chords. 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. African Mahogany has pleasant highs, strong mids, and balanced lows which makes it a popular choice among rock players for its thick, focused tone that cuts well in a mix. It’s slightly brighter and more open than traditional Mahogany. The raw wood feel of the beautiful, open grained satin finish, gets out of the way so you can feel more connected with the instrument. The Gotoh Floyd Rose is a double-locking tremolo that features hardened steel saddles and locking studs for improved performance and tuning stability. 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.
