I've just received my new Custom Suhr Modern from Peach Guitars ( http://www.peachguitars.com ) and quickly recorded this (rather long ;)) MasterThatGear Video. (specs and vid time codes below)
I talk about the options I chose as well as demoing some of the sounds, hearing them for the first time myself.
Turned out to quite a long video! So here's some quick time codes if you want to skip my waffling ;)
