    When I saw this thing for sale, I just had to buy it. It's easily the most ridiculous looking guitar I've ever owned and I'm absolutely loving it so far. The quilt on it is crazy, but it plays and sounds even better than it looks. The stainless steel frets and the fretwork itself are immaculate and it just feels so smooth. It weighs almost nothing but it sounds huge. Extremely clear and warm, almost like the hollow Anderson Drop Top I used to have, only WAY thicker and fuller. I still can't believe this thing is made of basswood, which I normally hate with a passion. Must be a combination of the quilted maple on top, the quality of the woods, and the Aldrich pickups. I've been wanting to try these pickups for a while and they seem to live up to all the hype, especially if they're making basswood sound this good. They also clean up really well which is awesome. I haven't been this excited about a guitar since my GMW DeMartini. I think I actually like this one more because of the versatility and how stunning it is. :cool:

    That finish is clear it looks like you could jump in and take a swim in it! The surh headstock looks pretty snazzy reversed.

    I played a suhr yesterday
    OMG
    the frets are like glass.
    I recommend to anyone with the money to get there hands on one.
    now they need a 7 string version.

    Wow, can you stop staring at it long enough to play it? lol Would it be too much to ask for more pics? The sun glare kinda hurts the view in those pics. Besides, we all need new spank material :D

    :lol:

    I'll try to take some indoor pics tomorrow. It's hard to believe, but it looks even better in person. I opened up the case when I first got it and was just blown away. I honestly laughed out loud because I was that happy. :nuts::lol:
