Suhr Modern Satin is a handcrafted, modern instrument with professional specifications, lightweight African Okoume body and neck and versatile pickups for all music genres.

There are many reasons to love African Okoume: it is beautiful, it sounds great, and it is lightweight. The Modern Satin was created to celebrate the sound and beauty of this tone wood. The thin layer of satin finish allow the neck and body to resonate freely, producing a wide variety of tones from warm articulate Jazz lines to tight aggressive Metal riffs. Modern Satin’s tone is always loud and clear.

African Okoume has pleasant highs, strong mids and balanced lows which makes it a popular choice among rock players for its thick, focused tone that cuts well in a mix. It’s sonically similar to Mahogany with a slightly brighter and more open tone. The unique open grain Modern Satin finishing process produces a razor thin finish that truly allows the woods to resonate and ring as much as possible, making for an incredibly lively and expressive instrument.

The Modern shape has a unique asymmetrical body that balances superbly with the extended 24-fret neck. Fast, sleek and sexy looking, the Modern shape will feel right at home to players who were weaned on the popular and innovative shapes that came into vogue in the 80’s.

The Modern Satin is equipped with our Modern Elliptical neck profile. Rolled edges and a straight 14” fingerboard radius offers an extremely comfortable shape. The African Okoume neck is finished in satin, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture. The sculpted heel of the Modern allows for easy access to all 24 frets. For optimum tone and stability, the neck joint must not be too tight or too loose, therefore all Suhr neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.

This Modern Satin has a HSH pickup configurations with a Gotoh 510 bridge and a 5-way mega-switch to serve up an array of versatile split-coil tones. The guitar has an SSV neck hum bucker, an ML middle single coil and the SSH+ bridge humbucker for added output. Positions 2 and 4 on the 5-way selector switch auto-split the humbuckers when combined with the middle pickup. The treble bleed circuit ensures consistent tone as you roll down the volume control, and is out of the circuit when the volume is on 10.

The Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge features dual steel knife edge pivot points to provide greater functionality and years of trouble free performance. The 510’s steel block increases sustain and tuning stability.

The jumbo stainless steel frets (.057″ x .110″) offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Every Suhr receives a PLEK fret dress, ensuring the best possible string action, playability and intonation.

The raw wood feel of the beautiful, open grained satin finish, gets out of the way so you can feel more connected with the instrument.

Suhr Modern Satin also has taggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.
