Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: SUHR Pickup Mounting Ear Holes

Spent SO much time filing down pickups and enlarging holes to get them to fit my Suhrs... I really wish Suhr would just install any pickup for you for custom order...

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: SUHR Pickup Mounting Ear Holes

Author: Drew7 Posted: Tue Jan 22, 2019 9:43 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 9 Can't you just use larger screws? Barring that, a custom pickguard that was offered up as a solution by another poster is a pretty good answer, too - there are shops that do custom pickguards so if you can get them the right dimensions (or if necessary send them your existing guard) you could have them build you a replacement with normal mounting screws, but sized up slightly larger for Suhr pickups. I've had the opposi...

Author: DaeniusZ Posted: Tue Jan 22, 2019 12:22 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 9 I haven't ordered from Suhr recently, maybe they're faster now. Friend of mine ordered a Pro Series S6 back in 2012 and that thing took 18 months. Granted Suhr was also moving factories at the time, so there was the extra added delay.

Author: DaeniusZ Posted: Mon Jan 21, 2019 9:28 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 4 When you requested for the SPC, did they tell you about how they typically install the SPC? Did your dealer or Suhr mention anything about using a different way to install the SPC? If not, then this is their mistake! You should push back on this, especially if they modified the SPC system without noticing you. I assume you've already paid extra in the order to even have the SPC installed in the first place. Maybe try...

Author: gobnew Subject: Suhr T with EMG pickups and SPC - Suhr Support issue !! Posted: Mon Jan 21, 2019 8:24 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 4 Hello, I received this amazing Suhr T. when I spec’ed it I asked for the SPC (EMG) system to be put on the Tone knob. So I believed it was working like a usual SPC knob. When I played it, it turned out that the SPC knob has been modified by Suhr techs to be a push/pull knob so : Down it’s just a tone knob and Up it’s the SPC full boost mode. I was wai...

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: Stainless Steel (fret wear)

Author: Organic Posted: Sun Jan 20, 2019 1:56 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 2 I've only had my Suhr guitars for 7 months and 1.5 months respectively, but I had a Carvin with stainless frets that I played for probably 2 years with no visible wear. Is it possible you transported the guitar without the fret protector and you are seeing divots caused by impact?

Author: Suhr Posted: Wed Jan 09, 2019 8:29 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 7 DaeniusZ wrote: Speaking of rolled back tone knobs on Les Paul, John did chime in one time and said many old Gibsons were using 300k pots for everything. Compared to 500k pots that we see on modern superstrats, that really is just like rolling it down to just above half way, yielding a darker tone. Auras have a unique 24.625" scale length. Very interesting that Suhr decided to do its own shorter scale, l...

It's in excellent condition and comes with the 4 button footswitch, MIDI footswitch cable, IEC power cable and the original box. $2,300 shipped/PayPal'd in the continental US, or less for a local pickup/delivery within a few hours of Central NY. I'd also be open to trades for other amps or guitars...with Suhr stuff at the top of the list.

I've heard both sides of the argument I've tried both and I personally can't tell the different. If I suck then I suck equally on both, neither makes me play better. If I can play something fast and accurately then I can do it on both. If I go between 2 guitars with different nut width then yes I'll notice the difference for maybe 3 to 5 minutes. Once you get used to t...
