SUHR 80s SHRED MKII
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 our friends, is the culmination of that quest for shred.
IMPECCABLE QUALITY, LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE
The Suhr 80s Shred MKII comes with a Maple neck and your choice of either Maple or Ebony fingerboard. The Maple neck with Maple fingerboard produce a muscular tone with strong mids and a percussive attack. Choose the Ebony fingerboard for a slightly more scooped tone.
MODERN ELLIPTICAL (.780″-.830″)
The 80s Shred MKII is equipped with our slimmest elliptical neck profile, and a flat 16″ fingerboard radius. The shred is strong with this one!
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 BODY SHAPE
A sleek take on the Classic design. The body is slightly downsized when compared to a Classic. It has a sharper radius on the edges and slightly longer horns to give it a modern, yet classy look.
Alder, a popular body wood for shred machines of the past, offer a strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows.
TIGER STRIPE MKII
Every tiger earns its stripes! This time, in black and Olympic White.
NEON DRIP MKII
Matching spandex not included.
