From John Suhr – “At Suhr we believe that great instruments inspire great performances. Every detail of the Modern Pro was carefully considered when we set out to craft an instrument that upholds this belief. The Modern shape is our high-performance take on the 24 fret design.
The sleek elliptical neck profile, balanced asymmetrical body, and innovative neck heel deliver unmatched playability and comfort. The stunning Flame Maple top is available in a variety of transparent finishes that have been developed to enhance its natural beauty.”
Offering any demanding contemporary guitar player a wonderfully enjoyable and expressive playing performance, combined with a sumptuous list of build specifications and American craftsmanship.

This Suhr Modern Pro was bought new by its one owner less than two years ago. It has been beautifully looked after and presents in as new condition. No apparent visible player wear, no changes and no issues.It features Suhr’s relatively rare Buckeye Burl finish which is one of the company’s most unique and striking colours.
And it features Suhr’s excellent Aldridge pickups. From Suhr – “The result of collaboration between John Suhr and rock guitarist extraordinaire Doug Aldrich, the Aldrich humbuckers are the ultimate high-output pickups for aggressive rock style of playing. The Aldrich bridge humbucker is now our highest output pickup but it oozes tone across its sound spectrum.
It’s big sounding yet focused and punchy in the mids and tight in the lows. You will never hear this pickup get flubby and undefined in the highest gain settings. The high-mids will cut through like the sharpest knife but the treble will be sweet and never grating on the ears. From chunky low-string metal riffing to screaming string bends in the high register, the Aldrich bridge humbucker covers them all while retaining the dynamics of your picking attack.”
The Modern Pro embodies the modernity and technology desired by the 21st century electric guitarist while encompassing the benefits of decades of guitar design and technology. Suhr guitars are renowned as instruments that owners treasure. Many a first-time Suhr owner has been surprised that the level of workmanship, build quality, sound and playability isn’t twice the price of these beauties. This is a modern player’s go-to guitar – style & finesse with power to burn.
