    Suhr 7 string proto #2!

    A bit plain, but gotta love the vulcanized maple neck.

    Mahogany body (oil finish)
    Vulcanized Maple neck (.780-.830, 11"-16", 1.9 nut width)
    Pau Ferro fingerboard
    Floyd Rose 7 bridge
    Stainless Steel Jumbo frets
    Sperzel Locking Tuners
    Bareknuckle Cold Sweat neck pickup
    Bareknuckle Painkiller bridge pickup
    Ebony accents around neck screws
    Interestingly (the owner works for Suhr,) he also mentioned:

    There will still be some small adjustments to the heel and neck joint area on the final production model which should start showing up in January.

    We are taking orders for these with Suhr 7 pickups which are in the works, and will be done by the time production begins on the guitar. You can also choose EMG and Bare Knuckle pickups. So far the BKs are sounding great but I cant want to hear the Suhr 7's as I love the Aldrich pickups in my Les Paul and they will be in that SSH+/Aldrich territory. We are currently only working with Original Floyd Rose 7 bridge but looking into alternate bridges, including hardtails.
    So, Suhr 7-string Aldrich-alikes and genuine Suhr sevens in January!

    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    It has proper pickup routes!

    I hope they offer seven-string single routing options. H-S Modern 7 = awesome.

    Also, I bet it would look a lot better in sunlight without camera flash.

    I'd almost hit it. What's the scale and are they going to make one without floyd?

    so fucking badass, I'm not a huge floyd fan though. If that was a hardtail I'd hit the shit out of it, like it was a dog that shit on the rug

    Man, this is exciting! Love me some Suhr guitars.

    Total tangent here, but still Suhr related. In the GG sig, they have a "blower switch" which basically routes the bridge pickup straight to the output jack, bypassing all the controls and thus the treble bleed.

    Any opinions on this?

    Pretty basic circuit design, I might try it sometime.
