    so far really digging the guitar except the bridge pickup. I should have ordered the DSH vs SSH. SSH humbucker sounds a little too modern to me (brittle/harsh)

    Might have to swap it out for a Lollar or wolftone.

    Hi Laz, I bought a Suhr Strat in Febuary I believe. It played perfect right out of the box.
    I was really impressed. What a great guitar, plays like butta
    I will post the specs on mine, I bought it from Humbucker Music. Here is a picture of it next to my stack

    The SSV (Single Screw Vintage) is my favorite humbucker to match with the MLs... Definitely more vintage. The DSH (Double Screw Humbucker) won't change things a ton from the SSH (Single Screw Humbucker).

    I'd keep it 100% Suhr... Sweet guitar bro!

    I just lowered the pickup and they sound much better. It came from the factory all the way up so it was very hot.

    I have been playing LPs for a while so the neck is giving me a little trouble - too small. The neck is actually the same size I always ordered on Suhrs and it use to feel great --- LOL

    Just need to learn to love that neck size again ---

    Hey Laz, Hope you are still enjoying you new Suhr, here is the stat sheet to mine, not too fancy or many upgrades but it sure play sweet and I really like the pups. They are vintage style NOT noiseless.

    Humbucker still has some of these for 2199.00

    Looks pretty sweet! Does he still make the MK guitars or are those only available from Pensa?

    I have to check some of the S and T style guitars he's making out!
