❌SOLD❌ Suhr Modern Carved Top Lacewood and Cedar Fireburst 2017


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

Here is something not seen every day – a Suhr Modern Carved Top model with a chambered Lacewood top, Cedar back body. Suhr models start at professional grade and are largely custom order.

A quirk of the Suhr process is that the serial number is established at time of order, sometimes well before the instrument construction is begun, let alone finished.   While these numbers are consecutive, that doesn’t always match the sequence pieces are completed.   Here, this Suhr Modern Carved Top model has a COA listing a date of 10/24/2017. 

This Suhr Modern Carved top was built during 2017 and starts with a familiar wood combination of a hard top with a softer back. Here, the top is s single piece of Lacewood, though that name can refer to trees of over a dozen species. The chambered body back is Cedar, and the body itself has the classic S design. The bolt on neck is Mahogany with a Ebony for the compound-radius fingerboard, equipped with Stainless Steel frets. The black-finished hardware includes Suhr locking tuners and a Gotoh 510 trem bridge.

This Suhr Modern Carved top is in great condition with very little wear of any kind.  It also plays extremely well, and is resonant, responsive and well balanced. 

The original Suhr hard shell case is included – a very nice rectangular case with Suede type covering.   The case contains the original tool set and Certificate of Authenticity.
