« Suhr's Pro Series Modern »

Publié le 05/18/11 à 19:26
The Modern was invented for those looking for a 24 fret shred machine. It features a super sleek body with a great upper cutaway, special neck joint and floyd bridge. The guitar comes standard with an alder body, maple neck with rosewood fretboard, 24 stainless steel frets, two humbuckers, one volume, one tone and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

The Modern is one of the latest inventions from John Suhr. He spent a ton of time designing this, and it shows. While it take some cues from Ibanez, I find that these guitars tend to be a bit more comfortable to play. The neck joint and lower cutaway make it a breeze to play lead lines up to the 24th fret. The frets on this model are also stainless steel, so they're super smooth to play. On top of that, all these guitars are PLEK'd to ensure super smooth playability.

SOUNDS

The alder body with the maple neck and rosewood make this guitar one of the ultimate shred machines out there. This wood combination has been used successfully for years throughout the guitar community, and I find it to be a very versatile sounding wood combo. The humbuckers in this are also wonderful. The bridge is aggressive enough to where it can do metal and super fast picking lines without muddying out, but it's also able to roll back and do some more tame jazz fusion lines. The neck pickup gives that awesome, powerful, modern PAF sound without sounding overly fat or too thin.

OVERALL OPINION

The Modern series is great for those who want a 24 fret shred machine. The thinner neck, lower cutaway and neck joint help make this guitar nearly play itself. The only thing I'd change about this guitar is that I'd like to see it with a basswood body and flamed maple top. That would be about the ultimate Modern, in my opinion.
