Hey guys -

Not trying to make my first post spam but I had posted this on sevenstring.org and one of the guys there suggested I post it here also. I just wanted to let you know that Suhr is now accepting orders for their 7 string Modern. I received the following from them last night.

"We can now take orders for the Modern 7-String that was introduced at NAMM but the bridge choice is still limited to the Floyd Rose Original 7-String and the EMG pickups. The base price is the same as any other Custom model. John is working on a 7-string version of the Aldrich pickups and looking at other bridge options but it may still be a little while (several months) before other options for the bridges and pickups are finalized".

Please look me up if you're interested in getting one on order or would like additional info.

Thanks,

Matt :)

Sup Matt? :metal: Apology accepted, a couple of us pimp your shop a fair amount around here, so we're glad to have you on the boards. Stick around if you've got the time! :D

Not sure if you remember me, I was in there about a year ago with a beat up UV7PWH to try out a Stiletto Ace. It had a broken tube straight out of the box, which you swapped so I could demo it out, which given its closed-back construction was kind of a pain in the ass. I've felt guilty as hell about not buying it ever since, but I'm still head over heels in love with the Roadster I picked up used instead. :lol:

Hey Matt,

Since nobody's asked yet (at least over here, I'll pass on checking ss.org), if a customer had their own pickups (Dimarzio, BK, etc.) shipped to Suhr, would they put them in?

Thanks!

I just got the following from Suhr.

"We can take orders with the Duncan 7-string pickups but they need to be supplied right away so that we can work on the CAD drawings and the CNC programming. We'll only do the DiMarzio pickups if the dimensions are identical to that of Duncan's. We can't do the CAD drawings and CNC programming for every different type of 7-string pickup out there".

If any of you guys want to be the first kid on the block to own a Suhr 7 string, get in touch with me ASAP! I only need a non refundable $500.00 deposit to get your order in the system, the balance doesn't have to be paid until your guitar arrives in about 5 months.

If he can offer this guitar with a SD, any DiMarzio will fit :agreed:

It's mostly a matter of the size, Matt. The EMG housing is larger than all 7 string passive pup sizes. So, you see the dilemma in wanting to change pickups in that case.

Yup, I get it. That's why I spoke to them about it and now they're willing to do what you guys are all asking for.
