From Suhr – “At Suhr, we don’t merely produce some of the finest hand-crafted guitars and amplifiers – we produce dreams that inspire musical passion and artistic creativity. Our fervent dedication to the highest standards of quality possible, our fanatical attention to detail, our ears for tone, and our love for music, are all evident in everything we produce.
The passion to be the very best possible is the underlying current of what Suhr is all about. The vision of John Suhr is to design and produce the best musical instruments and electronics possible. From there the skill of experienced master craftsmen, technological know-how, and the hard work of dedicated employees who truly love what they’re doing take over to produce modern works of art that discriminating artists and musicians will savor for a lifetime.”
The Suhr 2016 Collection Series incorporates Suhr’s commitment to quality and innovation with the rarest, most exquisite materials available. They began with the raw materials that inspire them and designed each guitar to display the essence and beauty of it’s components. The result is a collection of stunning guitars worthy of the most discriminating connoisseur.
Each year Suhr sets out to produce a limited run of instruments that embody their commitment to quality and innovation with the best, most exquisite materials available. They call these instruments “The Collection.”
The theme of the 2016 Collection is “Beauty Meets Performance.”
The Suhr 2016 Collection Cocobolo Modern is limited to only 5 models of 20 pieces each worldwide. The Cocobolo Modern features a combination of a Korina body and neck with an extraordinary Cocobolo top and fingerboard, accented with gold hardware. Featuring a Korina body and hand finished Modern Elliptical neck, the craftsmanship is nothing short of perfection, with a comfortable and familiar playing feel that conforms to your hand, no matter where you are on the neck. With such a flawless combination of carefully sourced exotic tonewoods, the resonance is reminiscent of a decades-old vintage instrument, with sustain that can be actually felt when you hit a chord. Thanks to the Suhr HSH pickup combination, the tonal versatility is in full force.
These instruments aren’t only beautiful to behold, they’re just as distinguished sonically as the aesthetic suggests. The gloss-finished Korina neck is paired with a Cocobolo fingerboard and features the 2016 Collection appointments – solid brass side dots, Cocobolo Suhr Logo and 12th fret “Double S” inlay. Other 2016 Collection appointments include a gold Gotoh 510 bridge with steel block, Cocobolo knobs, switch tip, cavity covers, tuner buttons and pickup covers on the all new Thornbucker and Thornbucker+ pickups.

This is a stunning instrument in unplayed, brand new condition. It was bought by the owner direct from Suhr as a special order. Created to the highest standards of modern guitar design, this is one of only 20 pieces built worldwide by Suhr to this specification. It is a magical mix of exotic natural materials and cutting edge execution resulting in a wonderful mix of art and playability.
Besides the striking appointments, rare tonewoods and masterful build, this a simply an outstanding guitar to play, with sound to match. A true meeting of art and function.
It is extremely rare to see one of these in Australia. We recently noted a 2015 Collection Suhr Strat advertised here for A$20,000 so, while we know the price tag is a bit “up there”, it represents a one-off opportunity to purchase a seriously collectable modern masterpiece at a significant discount to new price. And it’s here in our showroom in Sydney ready for inspection – ie no shipping cost, insurance, import duty, transit risks or other guesswork.
Comes in its original deluxe hardshell case in new condition.
