Suhr Guitars was founded by John Suhr and Steve Smith in 1997 and is based in California, USA. They produce a range of guitars, basses, amplifiers, effects units and even their own line of pickups.
If you’re wondering where you’ve heard the name before, John Suhr used to be Senior Master Builder at the Fender Custom Shop before leaving to form his own company.
Left Handed Suhr Guitars
The good news is that all Suhr guitars are now available to order left handed, with the exception of the Modern Set-Neck, the 7-string Modern and also the Classic J-Bass.
The image above shows a sample of the different body styles available. A huge variety of options are available so be sure to check out the Suhr website for the full run-down on what can be ordered.
There are two ranges of guitars available; The Custom Series and the Professional Series. The Custom Series is just that – you get to choose your favorite model and go to town with the specifications. The Professional Series has the same level of craftsmanship, but is a little more affordable as Suhr set the specifications themselves.
If you’d like to create your own custom guitar, a great resource is Suhr’s ‘Just Shipped‘ page. On here you’ll find an impressive list of the latest guitars to leave the Suhr factory – a mouthwatering compendium to inspire your build!
Unfortunately the Suhr website hasn’t become any more lefty friendly in recent times. There is still no mention anywhere regarding which models are available left-handed, and as a result I had to contact the company to uncover this information. Luckily the Suhr customer service department was fantastic and quick to respond.
