Choosing the Right Electric Suhr Guitar

Budget

Suhr handcrafts premium instruments. As such, the price tags often reflect that attention to detail and expertise. Luckily, Eddie’s offers a variety of used and pre-owned options to fit within your budget.

Sound

Suhr Guitars also offers custom-wound pickups with options for single-coils and humbuckers. Get in touch with one of our experts at Eddie’s to help determine the right configuration to achieve your desired tonal range and character. For example, if you enjoy R&B, jazz, or just love a good twang, a single-coil pickup configuration would suit you well. If you're more into rock or metal, however, then humbucker pickups will be ideal.

Tonewood

Suhr uses high-quality woods, including alder, roasted maple, swamp ash, rosewood, paulownia, and mahogany. All of these choices can have an effect on the guitar's resonance and tonal characteristics.  A few tips to remember: when you prioritize warmth and resonance, you can't go wrong with mahogany. But for rich, balanced sounds, rosewood may be a better match.

Bridge Types

Each bridge type affects tuning stability, sustain, and how it feels to play the instrument. Choose between different bridge styles to suit your needs, such as pitch-altering tremolos, modern two-point tremolos, or easy-to-handle fixed bridges.

Colors

In addition to quality, Suhr instruments come in a wide range of eye-catching colors, including Garnet Red, Butterscotch, Ocean Turquoise Metallic, Fiesta Red, Seafoam Green, 3-Tone Burst, Vintage Yellow, Whale Blue Burst, Bengal Burst, Olympic White, Sonic Blue, Sunburst, Graphite Metallic, Trans Blue Denim Slate, and Inca Silver. It will be impossible to not fall in love with at least one of these colors.

Genre and Style Compatibility

Select a guitar that suits your preferred musical genre. Whether you play rock, blues, jazz, or metal, Suhr offers versatile tonal options to accommodate various styles. For metal, for instance, you cannot go wrong with a Suhr Modern model, whereas Suhr Classic T models are perfect for jazz lovers.

Neck Profile

Suhr guitars offer various neck profiles, too, including modern elliptical, slim C, and vintage V shapes. Eddie’s experts can help you find a neck profile that enhances comfort and complements your playing style.  The best way to decide which one suits your playstyle best? To try out each in person, of course by making an appointment at Eddie’s Guitars!

Amps and Pedals

Also consider how your Suhr guitar interacts with amplifiers. Suhr amps or other popular models from other brands like Mesa Boogie or Fender can complement Suhr guitars' tones and make your sound even better!  Make sure to experiment with effects pedals such as overdrive, delay, and modulation to mold your unique and signature sound!

Frets and Fingerboards

Suhr electric guitars offer fret size options ranging from vintage to jumbo. Select a fret size that suits your playing style and preference for string bending and fretting accuracy.
