SUHR MODERN T SATIN
The release of the Modern T Satin marks the debut of an entirely new model for Suhr. Designed in conjunction with Andy Wood, the Modern T combines the 24 fret neck and sculpted heel joint of our Modern with the body shape of our Classic T, improving player comfort at the upper frets while preserving a more traditional design aesthetic.
IMPECCABLE QUALITY, LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE
Equipped with our Modern Elliptical neck profile, rolled fingerboard edges and a straight 14” fingerboard radius. The African Mahogany neck is finished in satin, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
MODERN ELLIPTICAL (.800″-.850″)
The Modern Elliptical neck is a fast and sleek shape with enough girth for you to really grab onto when you want to dig in for wild string bends or playing chords.
JUMBO STAINLESS STEEL (.057″ x .110″)
Stainless steel frets offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation.
The sculpted heel of the Modern allows for easy access to all 24 frets. For optimum tone and stability, the neck joint must not be too tight or too loose, therefore all of our neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.
MODERN T BODY SHAPE
The Modern T Satin utilizes African Mahogany for both the body and the neck, resulting in an extremely responsive instrument that reacts to the subtlest dynamics.
African Mahogany has pleasant highs, strong mids, and balanced lows which makes it a popular choice among rock players for its thick, focused tone that cuts well in a mix. It’s slightly brighter and more open than traditional Mahogany.
The unique open grain Modern Satin finishing process produces a razor thin finish that truly allows the woods to resonate and ring as much as possible, making for an incredibly lively and expressive instrument.
RAW WOOD FEEL
The raw wood feel of the beautiful, open grained satin finish, gets out of the way so you can feel more connected with the instrument.
HARDWARE & ELECTRONICS
Equipped with Suhr SSH+ and SSV pickups and a 5-way selector switch, the Modern T Satin offers guitarists a wide array of humbucking and single coil tones; from high gain shred to glassy cleans. The Modern T Satin is a high performance workhorse with classic roots.
The Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge features dual steel knife edge pivot points to provide greater functionality and years of trouble free performance. The 510’s steel block increases sustain and tuning stability.
One of our most popular pickup configurations, the SSH+ bridge and SSV neck pickups produce a sound that is clear, with excellent harmonics and a strong midrange.
SUHR LOCKING TUNERS
Equipped with staggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.
