Suhr Guitar Talk :: Standard Plus - SSV and Thornbucker

Author: Muttoab Subject: Standard Plus - SSV and Thornbucker Posted: Mon Jan 21, 2019 5:34 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 0 Hi all, Just took delivery of a Standard plus. I am extremely happy with this guitar - it has all the playablilty of my Govan Charvel plus a really amazing great classic strat+ sound. It is officially and easily my #1! (The only downside is now I'm jonesing for more! Thornley signature? A Henderson??) While I do like the SSH+ humbucker, I'd prefer to swap in a Thornbucker. ...

Author: Muttoab Subject: Badger 18 - No power Posted: Mon Jan 21, 2019 5:18 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 0 Hi all, I submitted this information to Suhr customer support only very recently - but thought I'd post here as well just in case anyone has previous experience or a "Duh - of course" solution. I've got a Badger 18 (Serial #156) that doesn't produce power. It's spent considerable time at a very reputable local tech but we are stumped as to what could be happening. The amp powers up fine ...

Full story: I have a set of suhr SSH+ and SSV that I pulled out of my Suhr Modern Relic.

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: Suhr Classic Antique fret buzzing issues

Author: DaeniusZ Posted: Tue Jan 15, 2019 6:46 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 1 Suhr factory setup typically has fairly low action Usually if it can't be heard through an amp, people would consider that to not really be "buzzing" so to speak You shouldn't need to adjust the truss rod unless the concavity is giving you issues. Typically you should be able to simply raise the action slightly and the buzz would significantly reduce unless your neck is bowing backwards or you have a bad fret. Bad fr...

I know it's only slightly about 1 MM difference, but I was just wondering which would have the advantage in the shred soloing arena. I am thinking about getting a Modern.

Author: DaeniusZ Posted: Sun Jan 06, 2019 9:21 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 42 brokeguitar wrote: You sold me on it, I'm gonna get the blower switch on my next guitar, I imagine it could also double as a kill switch if you turn volume all the way down on the neck pickup. You could use it as a kill switch but it's not going to be quite the same as one of those "hold down" kill switches. It'd be more like a "mute" switch.

They are probably the only ones that can make it look exactly the same as before, especially using the same mixture of paint as was originally used. I've also emailed Suhr a few days ago asking for a quote and timeframe on routing the single cavity for a humbucker in my guitar, because I would now rather have 2 aldrich pickups instead of a ML neck and Aldrich bridge.
