    You know, I know for a fact that Suhr guitars both play and sound amazing, and have an insane level of build quality, but that is just about the most underwhelming guitar I've seen so far, at this NAMM.

    I was picturing a 7-string version of these:

    I know they're custom, and that ones like the ones I posted can easily be ordered. I guess I was just really looking forward to the Suhr 7.

    Don't mind me. :lol:

    Yeah this guitar was so anticipated and you can just predict the response that photo is going to get, Suhr stuffed up with that one.

    Im not going thru 15 plus pages of this thread. But damn If I only bought one 7 Id be happy with the UV77MC Universe. Those are hot! I hope they are as good as the originals.

    Suhr passives will be available, my guess is they just didn't have the tooling done in time for the prototype since Suhr does all of their own passive pups. Just like all of the awesome tops and cool finishes will be order options :lol:

    Oh my Christ that thing is incredible. Here's hoping it isn't as expensive as I have a horrible feeling it is.

    is that a rosewood neck?

    I kinda like how "UnSuhr" that Suhr is. No figuring on hte body, 7 strings, black hardware, friggin EMGs.


    im Gasing for it. :agreed: Maybe they will sell that one uber cheap as a protype model. :)

    I think it's a vulcanized maple neck, but not 100% sure

    They would have done something prettier if they had the time. That guitar was finished being built the day before the show started. They had to go with a mahogany body oiled in order to push it out quick enough to even be at the show! They promised to have something there, so they didn't have time to do any pretty tops, but do keep in mind they're custom, so you can get whatever you please!

    I guarantee you soon there will be plenty of 7 string pictures that will have pretty tops etc. like those pictures. Time was the issue.

    As for the EMG comment, they haven't gotten their passives made yet so they used these. Blackouts will be an option too along with the Aldrich 7's I believe. The EMG's were convenient for them so they could get the 7 string to the show.

    Yeah it is, with a rosewood fingerboard.

    Forgot to mention... that Suhr 7 is a PROTOTYPE.

    prototype |ˈprōtəˌtīp|
    noun
    a first or preliminary model of something, esp. a machine, from which other forms are developed or copied.

    done. :lol:

    Well, I am entirely certain you will be able to get a 7 with awesome tops etc like those other guitars in the future. It is a prototype after all. I think he was catering more to the wishes of his son :)

    I want the Ibanez RGA8 and the RG1527Z :shred:

    Must start saving, because I also want to buy my first Agile 8-string this year!!!

    Of course, I'd love to get that Universe reissue, but I'm sure that one won't be affordable for me :mad:
