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.

SUHR MODERN

IMPECCABLE QUALITY, LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE

Equipped with our Modern Elliptical neck profile, rolled fingerboard edges and a straight 14” fingerboard radius. The African Okoume neck is finished in satin, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.

SUHR MODERN

Neck Features

NECK PROFILE

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.

FRETS

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.

SCULPTED HEEL

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 Okoume for both the body and the neck, resulting in an extremely responsive instrument that reacts to the subtlest dynamics.

SUHR MODERN

Body Features

TONE WOODS

African Okoume 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.

BODY FINISH

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.
