    I found this baby in one of the regular pawnshops I frequent.

    I got an amazing deal on this beauty.

    It's a 2015 Suhr Sherwood Metallic Green Classic Pro

    Who ever owned this guitar must have had it in a closet or under a bed.

    I can hardly find any wear on the body on the fretboard.

    This guitar has the Silent Single Coil System (SSC II), and has medium Stainless Steel frets.

    The neck is a Even Medium C which I find very comfortable, and the neck has a very fast satin feel to it.

    The pickups that were ordered on V70's for the neck and middle, and an SSV Humbucker.

    The single sound very clear and powerful, and the bridge is punch with a nice clear growl.

    Very impressed with the pickups on this one.

    Anyway, enough rambling, here are some pics.

    Oh yes!
    Very very very nice!
    Even more Strat than a Strat!
    Is that possible?
    :D

    I'd love me a Suhr Telecaster for sure.

    I love that color, super sexy! I've noticed that with guitars of that caliber, that owners tend to take pretty damn good care of them so buying used is an even better deal than usual.

    I’ve always been curious about that company, I’ve never played one. Probably better than good, probably very excellent build quality.

    Suhr's are extremely well made and all play and sound amazing.

    The thing that keeps most guys, including myself, is the price of a new one.

    The entry level base price for a new one is $2800 or so, and you add to that price for upgrades.


    This is the reason I patiently wait to find killer deals on good quality used guitars.
