I think Matt @ Matt's Music has already confirmed that once they're ready, they'll be offering all of their standard options in seven-string format. THAT is why this thread interests me.I remember speaking to someone who apparently knows John Suhr's son and he said that once released, all of the maple tops and stains and other options will be available. So whilst this is a bit plain atm, they're probably just trying to get playability right etc. I cant wait to see some proper finished ones with quilted/flamed maple and a nice stain :scream:
Hey, thanks for signing up, man! :lol: It's definitely a workhorse - how's she sound?Hey everyone, this is Shon Kornfeld. I work for Suhr Guitars and im the owner of the plain boring Modern 7. Im not into figured woods really, I like my guitars to have the "workhorse" look I suppose. Anyway, the guitar is killing, I love it and im stoked to own the 2nd prototype. Its basically a copy of the 1st prototype but I was able to to convince them to route them for the BK pickups instead of EMGs. I like the Pain Killer bridge, not really head over heels with the Cold Sweat neck, but in all honesty i'll probably wind up putting the Suhr 7 pickups in there when they are done (by end of the year). They will be in the SSH/Aldrich territory, and I love the Aldrich pickups in my Les Paul.
OK, im gonna go play my boring looking guitar!
Got Guitar Parts? : Guitar Jones USASeven-string Aldrich pickups? Hmm, I may need to see if I figure out how to get a couple of those into the EMG routs on my KXK...
Hopefully the option is added as it looks amazing on the 6. Not a deal breaker though.no changes to the headstock (that im aware of), but much thought and revision went into the heel/lower horn area. I dont need it personally as im more of a rhythm player, but for the shredders they will be happy with the more open lower heel. no reverse peg either as that it a whole neck revision-redraw-reprogram and the demand is still very low for it. As the demand increases im sure it will happen, but not for quite a while I dont think.
