The Suhr 80's Shred will bring you back to the glory days when shred was king. When it was all about big hair, spandex and how many notes you could fit into one solo. Guitarists everywhere sought the ultimate in playability and over-the-top styling to set themselves apart.
This my friends, is the culmination of that quest for shred.
The 80’s Shred is available in two wood combinations. The Alder body with a Maple neck and Ebony fingerboard produce a muscular tone with strong mids and a percussive attack. The Swamp Ash body, Maple neck and Maple fingerboard produce a resonant tone with slightly scooped mids and sweet highs. These choice tone woods embody the shred style and sound.
Equipped to Rock
The Gotoh Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo system keeps your tuning locked down while you dive bomb to your heart’s content. Armed with our high-output Aldrich humbuckers the 80‘s Shred covers everything from chunky low string riffing to screaming high string bends with ease.
High Gain Heaven
Every guitar comes with its own matching antiqued Riot pedal which turns any amp into a fire breathing monster. When paired with our 80’s Shred guitar, this dynamic duo will take you to high gain heaven.
The modern elliptical neck shape, rolled fingerboard edges, stainless steel frets, 16” radius and optional scalloped fretboard combine to offer effortless playability suited for fast lines and huge bends.
If your mind isn't blown yet, get ready. Every 80's Shred is equipped with a head turning reverse headstock. Black eyeliner and big hair are recommended.
Our proprietary antiquing process and authentic 80’s materials give this guitar a “broken-in” feel like rocking was your day job back in the 80’s. Available finished in either neon drip or tiger stripe, the 80‘s Shred is a modern day time machine.
The slightly asymmetrical modern body shape feels balanced whether sitting or standing. The comfortable contours make playing through double encores a breeze.
Don’t pull out the spandex just yet, there are only fifty available in each finish. So turn off that Atari, get off your waterbed and get yours today because these will be gone faster than your uncle’s Trans-Am.
