Elixir Strings has published this nice little press release about their strings being used on the Suhr 2009 Limited Edition Modern Carved Top guitar. As the release points out, Suhr has been using Elixirs for over half a decade, so I guess the real point of the press release is to draw your attention to two things: a) Elixirs are so awesome that a company as awesomely awesome as Suhr uses them on all their guitars, and b) look at that monstrously awesome 2009 Limited Edition Modern Carved Top!
Suhr Guitars Makes Elixir® Strings Its First Choice For 2009 Limited Edition Electric Guitar
Suhr Guitars’ newest model has a luxurious look and feel. Unique features include a 3/4 inch maple top that is glued onto an alder body and commemorative inlay work on the fingerboard. With all this attention to detail going into every guitar, the company knew it had to make the right choice when choosing strings. Elixir Strings proved to be the right choice because of their superior sound quality and long-lasting playability.
“We have been using Elixir Strings for six or seven years now on all of the guitars we build, so we knew they would again be a great fit for our 2009 Limited Edition Modern Carve Top,” says Ed Yoon, director of marketing, sales & customer service at Suhr Guitars. “Elixir Strings have a very nice balanced sound and they maintain their tone for a long time. Customers notice how great the strings are and often comment on their crisp sound and long life. In fact once customers realize they are playing Elixir Strings, they tell us they won’t use anything else.”
Each 2009 Limited Edition Modern Carve Top guitar features a set of light gauge electric Elixir Strings with ultra-thin NANOWEB® Coating, thus providing the best possible sound to both users and potential customers of more than 100 authorized Suhr Guitar dealers worldwide.
“For high-end guitars such as the ones we produce, we think it’s important for our dealers to showcase them with fresh sounding strings. This way our guitars sound as good as they can when a customer tries them out,” Yoon continues. “A lot of other string brands start sounding dull after a few hours of being played. But Elixir Strings keep that fresh new-set-of-strings tone for a very long time and we think that’s critical, especially for our dealers.”
Only 75 Limited Edition Modern Carve Tops are being manufactured. The guitar retails for $5,900.
