The Suhr Select Series represents John Suhr’s vision of a great custom guitar. These are John’s presentations of instruments that he would personally build for himself with the focus on achieving the optimal balance of beauty, tone and playability.
Each Suhr Select instrument was designed utilizing a “form follows function” concept and all of these guitars were built with a purpose in mind. All the materials that John and Mike Ponce (Guitar Production Manager and Master Builder) specifically select for this series contribute to their quest for building a unique and distinctive instrument.
Another important aspect of the Suhr Select series is the amount of creative input gathered from our key employees some of whom have worked with John for over 20 years. Through the years of their apprenticeship, these employees have developed into artisans whose talents significantly contribute to the overall fit and finish.
“I believe an instrument should inspire you to play. A guitar should liberate a player by possessing the key characteristics of great tone, comfortable ergonomics, beauty and playability.” Every aspect of the design and build process of these instruments supports John’s vision of the ultimate custom guitar.
The Suhr Select series is a testament to John Suhr’s lifelong devotion and dedication to the spirit of building the finest handmade guitars in the world. We hope you will enjoy playing the Suhr Select Series guitars as much as John and Mike enjoyed designing and building them.
