SOLD - Suhr Pete Thorn Signature – USA 2021
Pickup currently unavailable
From Suhr about the Pete Thorn Signature:
‘While prolific guitar sideman Pete Thorn may refer to himself as a “guitar nerd” – his resume proves he’s anything but. His effortless, dynamic playing has landed him onstage alongside such legendary artists as Don Henley, Chris Cornell and Melissa Etheridge among others — and his debut solo CD Guitar Nerd garnered critical praise and landed on CD Baby’s top selling albums list.
Pete has been a Suhr artist for over 10 years and has previously partnered with Suhr to design and produce his signature PT100 amplifier and Thornbucker pickups. Now, we are debuting his Signature guitar at NAMM 2017. The guitar is based off of a custom spec Suhr Standard model that Pete has used extensively in the studio and on tour for the last two years. It’s equipped with Thornbucker pickups (with pickup rings, a first for Suhr) and a super comfortable and fast Even C Slim neck.
This guitar is designed to be a sleek, versatile tone machine with a stunning yet understated look that exudes class and rock and roll attitude.’

This Suhr Pete Thorn Signature was bought new by its one owner less than one year ago. It has been beautifully looked after and presents in as new condition. No apparent visible player wear, no changes and no issues. The top features a wonderful black finish that is unblemished, with a rich garnet red gloss finish on the back and sides.
And it features Suhr’s excellent Thornbucker pickups. These combine beautifully to produce a big sound that is still focused and punchy in the mids and tight in the lows.
The Pete Thorn Signature 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 owner's 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.
Comes in its quality Suhr original hardshell case.
