What do you guys think of the Suhr basses?
Come on. No comments from anyone?
I've heard that they are great basses, but I've never played one. If I remember correctly, Mr. Suhr was a principal luthier at another bass company (Fender?) before starting Suhr basses.
Let me know if you get to play one.
They look very nice and I suspect very well built. John Suhr was at the Fender Custom Shop (I believe a "master builder") before going out on his own. There was a long thread about his work on the Fender Forum, Custom Shop sub-forum, some months ago.
I'll let you know in about a week when I get mine. I bought a used one off of ebay. It's a jazz bass with rosewood board, bart electronics.
Played one at NAMM. very, very, very well built. Has a distinct sound though. Sounds a little "woody" compared to the my Sadowsky. I don't like his headstock, but other than that, I'd consider one after Sadowsky and Lull.
I have played some of the older Pensa Suhr's he made with Rudy, very nice stuff.
Those pensa surhs's look like real cool basses I'd like to try one someday.
