    UTILIZATION

    This guitar has an all access type neck joint - similiar to a high end Ibanez and all frets are easily accessible and it's great for lead playing.
    There is a nice variety of sounds available from the two humbuckers and 5-way pick up switch and it is easy to get a nice array of tones.
    The guitar has perfect balance, a great, thin ergonomic neck and forearm and body cutaways.
    Very comfortable standing or sitting.
    I've got the action set at 1/32" all the way across the neck - it is a great and easy player!


    SOUNDS

    I use this guitar with custom built Peters amplifiers, which are kind of a cross between a Peavey 5150 and high gain Marshall/VHT with a little Boogie thrown in, a VHT Sig-X and an Egnater MOD 50. The amps were paired with an Avatar 4x12 that had Celestion G12h -30's and a Splawn 4x12 with Governor/ManOWar speaker combo, a Earcandy Buzzbomb 2x12 w/ Scholz speakers and a Mojotone 3x12 w/ Celestion CL-80's.

    I usually go for a nice thick Jerry Cantrell AIC tone, to use with my modern rock/metal band. This particular guitar and pickup combo is very focused on the upper mids and can get you a mid prominent heavy tone and good cleans. Suits my style of music very well. The pickups/sounds stay very defined even under high gain.

    I also use this guitar in a few cover bands that I've played in which includes songs from The Rolling Stones, Kings of Leon to RHCP, Poison and System of a Down. It does well with all styles.

    This guitar has very nice lead tones and nice tight rhythm tones that cut through well.



    OVERALL OPINION

    I love just about everything concerning this guitar. I liked it so much I bought a less expensive Suhr Pro Modern, as well. It is an expensive guitar but it is a quality instrument that will last a lifetime.

    I will rate this overall a 10 for what it is. I just wish Suhr would come out with a Les Paul type bridge or non-trem model for the Modern. The floyd type guitars are knd of a pain sometimes.

    The thing I like the least about it is the price - but you get what you pay for. If I had to do it again, I would probably just get another Pro version and save $900. The mahogany/Aldrich combo does give it a different tone from the Pro.

    I have owned many guitars and had a number of years where I would buy, try and flip, which enabled me to have many guitars around to try out.
    This Pro series Modern is ranked right up there with the best of them in overall satisfaction. This guitar has beat out Ibanez RG's, Charvel/Jackson's, Gibsons, TA's and PRS's that have been in my collection - and I was able to sell them off.
