Suhr Introduces the Select Series

These are John Suhr's presentations of instruments that he would personally build for himself.

Lake Elsinore, CA (March 17, 2017) -- The Suhr Select series represents John Suhr’s vision of a great custom guitar. These are John’s presentations of instruments that he would personally build for himself with the focus on achieving the optimal balance of beauty, tone and playability.

Each Suhr Select instrument was designed utilizing a “form follows function” concept and all of these guitars were built with a purpose in mind. All the materials that John and Mike Ponce (Guitar Production Manager and Master Builder) specifically select for this series contribute to their quest for building a unique and distinctive instrument.

As John and Mike continue to explore new ideas for custom instruments, the Suhr Select series will be the platform that delivers them to the world. We hope Suhr Select serves as an inspiration when designing your own Custom guitar.

Street price: Models range from $3,123.75 - $7,011.90

All Suhr Select guitars are designed and assembled in the USA.

Energy is in everything. Something came over me while playing historical instruments in the Martin Guitar Museum.

When I’m filming gear demo videos, I rarely know what I’m going to play. I just pick up whatever instrument I’m handed and try to feel where it wants to go. Sometimes I get no direction, but sometimes, gear is truly inspiring—like music or emotion falls right out. I find this true particularly with old guitars. You might feel some vibe attached to the instrument that affects what and how you play. I realize this sounds like a hippie/pseudo-spiritual platitude, but we’re living in amazing times. The Nobel Prize was just awarded to a trio of quantum physicists for their experiments with quantum entanglement, what Albert Einstein called “spooky action at a distance.” Mainstream science now sounds like magic, so let’s suspend our disbelief for a minute and consider that there’s more to our world than what’s on the surface.
