The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌ SOLD ❌ Suhr Modern Pro Solidbody Electric Black Cherry Metallic, 2011


Instrument Categories: , , ,

We haven’t seen a lot of Suhr guitars like this Suhr Modern come through our shop, but John Suhr has been building guitars since the 1980s in New York and California. He’s built guitars and amplifiers for many major artists, and for a time was Senior Master Luthier at the Fender Custom Shop.

Here’s a lovely Suhr Modern Pro, dating to 2011, built in Lake Elsinore, California and wearing a subtly sparkly Black Cherry Metallic finish with colour matched headstock. This guitar is in very good, all original condition, and with the original hard shell case.

The Suhr Modern features an alder body, maple neck with 24-fret  rosewood fingerboard, modern elliptical profile and larger Stainless Steel frets, Sperzel locking tuners, and a Gotoh 510 2-post trem bridge. For electronics, it has custom JS (for John Suhr) pickups and an HSH configuration. The controls are simple, a 5-way selector switch and master volume and tone, but the tone control uses a push-pull pot to allow splitting the neck pickup.

This is a straight-forward, extremely well built guitar that illustrates how good the Fender bolt-together concept can be.
