Suhr - why no P Bass or Antique series basses?

    I own a Suhr Antique series Strat and Tele and would love to get into a Suhr Antique series bass but they don't appear to offer them for sale.

    Also kind of boggles my kind that Suhr doesn't offer up a P Bass.

    I'm with you Brother. Had a Suhr Jazz a few years bask.
    Sweet Bass. But P-Bass would be nice.

    I believe they're do an antique finish, in a limited color selection. Great instruments, but not lots of options for basses...

    Yea - it's too bad. I'm a Precision player and I'd really love a beat to hell Antique Suhr bass to match my Suhr guitars.

    he would probably answer that question if you emailed them or called , they do pickup the phone :bassist: I think he would have to start with a killer pickup , which I would buy :ninja:

    funny I'm not a J guy either , except for..

    They don't offer P pickups so I would imagine developing a P bass would be more effort than it's worth to them. People have been waiting for a five string Suhr J and they're still waiting.

    I think the root of the problem is that P bass players on average aren't much into custom instruments, specifying all the options.

    Same problem as with Carvin.
