Modrn Antique. Oxymoron? Nope. This Suhr Modern Antique Roasted in Black is a modern playing gem, with the feel of an old old friend.
Compound radiused neck, rolled stainless steel jumbo frets, Gotoh 510 bridge, locking tuners - just some of the modern appointments. Nitro lacquer and a medium ageing treatment give it a great look and worn-in feel.
At Eddie’s Guitars, we are confident everyone can agree that there is something special about a guitar that has been played and loved for years. There is nothing quite like the feel of an instrument that has been worn by years of use. Unfortunately, if you don’t have 30 years to wait for this mature sound, these characteristics can be difficult to replicate in newer guitars. That’s why Suhr designed the Modern Antique: to preserve the spirit of a well-used instrument while ensuring that it still performs like a Suhr. Impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail ensure that every neck pocket is tight, every fret is perfectly dressed, and that every instrument is ready for peak performance.
