Gorgeous quilt maple top on a mahogany body! Get that shredneck sound made famous by Andy Wood with a laser-engraved signature to prove it!
One of the best luthiers in the business joining forces to create the signature axe of one of the most innovative and daring players out there...it's no wonder we've been in love with this one since it got here!
John Suhr and Andy Wood started from the idea that Andy is, first and foremost, a mandolin player so he needs a guitar that can articulate like nothing else but with the versatility needed to cover all of the playing styles and genres Andy touches on in his guitar playing. The modern S-style body is outfitted with the classic mahogany body/quilt maple top pairing with a gorgeous Pau Ferro fingerboard for capturing Andy's spectacular 'Shredneck' style.
Now a guitar of this caliber needs pickups that will bring out that rich, full-sounding mahogany/quilt maple body's full-sounding lows and sparkling highs, which is why Suhr chose the powerful, tight, and warm DSV and DSH+ humbuckers. This guitar is versatile enough to nail just about any tone or style you'd need at any given time. Between the gorgeous appearance and unparalleled playability, the only problem you'll have is that you won't want to put it down!

Native to Asia, Europe, and North America, Basswood gained prominence as a favored tone wood for shredders in the 1980’s. It is light in color and weight with almost no grain pattern. It is best suited for solid colors or as a backing wood for a figured top. Basswood bodies have a fat, well-balanced tone that produces smooth sounds without any hard edges.
