Weekend Tunes: DeVotchKa – Straight Shot

DeVotchKa's latest album, This Night Falls Forever, has been on near constant rotation in our home since I picked it up a few weeks ago. As usual, the band's music is heartrendingly beautiful. Straight Shot is the first track on the album and the one that, for me at least, has been the band's biggest ear worm this time around.

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: The street price on a Modern Satin is now $2450?

Author: qwe200 Posted: Sat Dec 29, 2018 12:16 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 5 I view the Suhr Modern Satin as the boiler-plate, entry level Suhr. It's a very raw, mostly unfinished guitar. Compare that to a Modern Plus that has a figured top, painted headstock and many hours of additional labor for just $500 up-charge. Applying your bogus justification of inflation, how come the Modern Plus didn't increase by $500? I was considering a Modern Satin, but no longer. I've been a Suhr fanatic on...
