Pete Thorn is one of the most influential guitarists today and has the skill to back it up. It's only fitting that a guitarist of his caliber would have a signature guitar with Suhr. The Pete Thorn Signature Standard combines the aesthetics and sounds of a certain 50s single cut with those of an modern S type. The Mahogany body and neck offer rich warm tones while the Maple top brings the highs and tons of sustain! Loaded with a Thornbucker and Thornbucker +, 5 way blade, and coil split for ultimate tonal options! This is the perfect gigging or sessions players guitar, which make sense because Pete Thorn is both!
S/N may vary as we may have more than one in stock.
While prolific guitar sideman Pete Thorn may refer to himself as a “guitar nerd” – his resume proves he’s anything but. His effortless, dynamic playing has landed him onstage alongside such legendary artists as Don Henley, Chris Cornell and Melissa Etheridge among others — and his debut solo CD Guitar Nerd garnered critical praise and landed on CD Baby’s top selling albums list.
Pete has been a Suhr artist for over 10 years, and has previously partnered with Suhr to design and produce his signature PT100 amplifier and Thornbucker pickups. Now, we are debuting his Signature guitar at NAMM 2017. The guitar is based off of a custom spec Suhr Standard model that Pete has used extensively in the studio and on tour for the last two years. It’s equipped with Thornbucker pickups (with pickup rings, a first for Suhr) and a super comfortable and fast Even C Slim neck.
