PostForum: Suhr Guitar Talk   Posted: Fri Aug 23, 2019 8:07 am   Subject: Classic S setup question
I have the urge to order a Classic S, but I have one question and it might be silly.

I set my action to 1/16 off of the last fret to the bottom of the string with a fairly flat neck (.007 relief), ...

I knew it was the switch.

Solved the problem!!

It was the 5 way switch...it was working but something was wrong and it was sucking tone...never would have guessed that was it.

After reading your post I think you should email Suhr to get the most professional advice available. In the mean time I will offer some unprofessional and wandering ideas to consider.

An alternate perspective:

Is this a new guitar? If so, does your new guitar have the same scale length and a flatter radius?

If so, you might be used to following the radius of your other guit ...

This is one of the beautiful features of the Gotoh.
You can actually adapt the Gotoh arm assembly to the floyd but it requires some machining. We have done it once and it isnt fun. Plus you need to g ...

1. The arm has internal threads at the base. It is likely you wound it down a bit. So, spin the bar counterclockwise and gently pull the arm out. It may demand a few rotations but that should do the ...

I know you can buy the Floyd style bar with the cap screw and replace the Gotoh bar ( Ive done it before ) so I would guess you could do the opposite and buy a Gotoh replacement arm and put it on the ...

I just acquired a Modern 7 and I have been bonding with this awesome instrument. Koa, low A, pau ferro, so AWESOME. But I have a small issue-the wobbly floyd arm is a bit annoying.
