  • Product Description

    The Distinctive Select Series is a year-round collection of Suhr guitars built exclusively for Distinctive Guitar. Every guitar in the Distinctive Select series feature woods that we hand picked straight from Suhr's Private Stock vault. No expense is spared as we personally spec every aspect of the guitar to create instruments that are masterpieces, both visually and sonically. Each of these limited edition pieces features a Distinctive Select engraving on the headstock along with a custom 12th fret inlay you won't get anywhere else.

    A gorgeous and incredibly rare Cocobolo neck (no longer available for custom builds!) and handpicked Black Limba body are at the core of this stunning Suhr Modern Distinctive Select. Moreover, the figuring in the top is unreal (be sure to check out the HD photos!). Suhr's hand-wired pickups have a highly versatile and dynamic character that makes them ideal for the stage and studio alike, with a pronounced midrange and exceptional bass, as well as a delicacy that makes them perfect for low-volume playing. The versatility here is astounding, and cherry on top is the stunning cosmetic touches that are exclusive to DG, such as the custom 12th fret inlay, and ring inlays, which are normally ONLY available on the Collection Series!

    Suhr Classic Antique Demo - Limited Edition Roasted Recovered Collection

    Enjoy this Distinctive Select Suhr Classic Antique from our exclusive Roasted Recovered Sinker Maple Collection. More info below and at Introducing the Distinctive Select Roasted Recovered Sinker Maple Collection from Suhr. The maple necks of these guitars were crafted from old slow growth timber that rested in the depths of the Great Lakes for approximately 100 years. The cold temperature and low oxygen content of the water preserved the wood in near perfect condition. Most old slow growth wood at the bottom of the Great Lakes was harvested in the late 1800’s from areas in Canada, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. This wood is scarce today, as it is estimated that 10% to 30% of these logs sank to the bottom of the Great Lakes on the way to port. Once the wood dried, it was roasted to eliminate moisture, resulting in a resonant and stable neck. Our suppliers have gone to great lengths to recover these sunken pieces of North American heritage and history. This wood is an example of our dedication to source the finest, most toneful woods for our customers.
