Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: Even C Medium vs 60's C Vintage Medium

Author: ATLMikeyD Posted: Thu Sep 09, 2021 3:06 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 2 I love the Vintage C shape on both the Antique S and T models. I've been playing chunkier Gibson necks for the past 20 years so the modern, thinner necks are not to my taste. I say find a Suhr dealer or someone local here on the forum and see if they'll let you play a guitar with either of the profiles to get an accurate impression.

The Glow Pt. 2 Turns 20

“It is far enough ago that it seems like another person’s music, not mine,” Phil Elverum told the website Manik Music in 2013. He was talking about a reissue of the Microphones’ 2001 album The Glow Pt. 2. “I don’t feel those feelings now, and I wouldn’t write those songs. The world seems different to me now.” If this was true when the interview ran, it would seem to be doubly so in 2021, given all that has transpired since.
