Suhr is excited to officially announce the new Guthrie Govan Signature Antique Modern. This is a guitar that turned out better than Suhr could have hoped for. The particular combination of Basswood/Maple body in thin and aged nitro-cellulose lacquer, the 510 bridge with vintage-style bent saddles, and the Roasted Maple neck give the guitar a HUGE yet articulate and punchy tone that has to be heard to be believed.
The Roasted Maple process for the neck wood, like the previous Vulcanizing process, is cooking the wood in oxygen-free oven at 250 degrees or so and removes moisture and all sorts of other "impurities" that would normally take hundreds of years from the wood. So the wood becomes exceptionally dense, stable and also imparts a big brilliant sound with a strong attack and definition. It looks and feels amazing as well. You have to remember that the neck contributes 50~55% of the overall acoustic character of the guitar.
