Has anybody here, apart from Pete, tried his signature Suhr? I have a Suhr Classic Pro, but I’m seriously GASsing for Pete’s sig. Pretty sure it will be my next purchase, I was just wondering if anybody else had tried one and what their thoughts were.
Good question Colin- mostly out of my control however- I did push to get the guitar as low as possible, there was a few discussions about it. Manufacturing/running a biz in cA is VERY expensive, and things kinda cost what they cost, if you want to make em in the USA. But… if there’s anywhere where savings can occur, we try and do it- for example my amp’s price was reduced by (I think) $300, when we brought out the blue face ones- because John found a way to streamline the manufacture, actually making the circuit board layed out more efficiently from a build perspective, and this affected how easily they could be built- and he passed the savings on. I think that’s really cool.
I just took the plunge and put in an order for one this afternoon. I’ll let you all know how it goes when it arrives… in February. 🙂 Many years ago I did a similar thing (bought a guitar sight unseen) with an ESP Stephen Carpenter 6 string and I didn’t regret it. Really hoping for a similar experience here. I’ve heard nothing but great things about Suhr, can’t wait to get my hands on this puppy!
DONE!! I put a deposit on a Vintage Gold top that was ordered by the dealer in Octobber. Should get it in the next 2 months. I can’t wait to get this one. It is the only New guitar I bought in the last 10 years…..
