To me Suhrs seem like overbuilt Fenders. I get the idea, I'm just not really into them or other similar guitars.
& I feel the same way that Don does. Nowadays you can build a more "custom" instrument than Fender does, w/better materials at less of a cost. To be fair you need some other skills & tools for woodworking, finishing, & electronics, but all told that's part of the reward of building your own
