Suhr has announced the limited-edition Standard Legacy series, comprising electric guitars which hark back to the first guitar designed and built by John Suhr back in 1984.

The guitars will feature African okoume bodies with figured maple tops, even C-slim maple necks, and Indian rosewood fingerboards with a 10- to 14-inch compound radius. The models also have a scraped body binding, a glossy black headstock, 22 heavy stainless steel frets and a Tusq nut.

They’ll be equipped with an EMG 85 active humbucker in the bridge and two EMG SA single-coils in the neck and middle positions. Controls include master volume and tone knobs and a five-way pickup selector.

Hardware comes in eye-catching gold and includes Suhr locking tuners and a choice of either a 510 vibrato or a Floyd Rose system. Players will be able to pick up one the guitar in a selection of five satin finishes: Trans Carmel, Aged Cherry Burst, Black, and new Pelham Blue and Suhr Burst.

The Suhr Standard Legacy 2021-2022 models are expected to be released in the Fall. Each model has a street price of $3,499 and comes with a hard case.
