Hi everyone! This is my first post here on the board. I'm now officially a Suhr owner! I'm the proud new owner of Exotic #1. I have lusted after that guitar for a *very* long time!! I couldn't believe my luck when I found it for sale. Anyway, here's a couple of pics:






This guitar plays so incredibly well and sounds amazing. I think the build quality, BFTS, and wood selection just make for an unbelievable guitar, and I'm so very proud to own it. (by the way, what looks like a ding on the binding in the first pic is just a reflection... the guitar is perfect).

A big thank you to Shark Diver for making this happen. He was extremely helpful, patient, and was a pleasure to deal with. I hope to buy him a drink one day.

Without a doubt, this will not be my last Suhr. I *was* a PRS guy. So hello fellow Suhr friends. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of each other.

-Ray

Not sure. I have a few ideas, but the guys at Suhr are really busy, so I'm just waiting. I just ordered the last Soldano SLO 100 rack amp ever made - and the first since '94. I have a Bogner fish I'm using with it. I tried to get John to make me rack amp, but no go.

Thanks for the great comments, everybody! That feels good.

I am VERY excited about this guitar. I haven't been this excited in a while! So yeah, I might need to see what else the folks at Suhr can do for me. Wink
