    Suhr modern custom | EstebanGear | Reverb

    Or I'm just really suspicious. If it is true one could make a tidy profit on a flip. Like 100% profit.

    Too sketchy for me though. The guitar looks real to me, but we're talking a custom order autographed by John Suhr that should be at or over the $5K range.

    EDIT : Adding to my suspicion is that the seller just joined Reverb in 2021, has no history, and is located in Argentina.

    Or am I just jaded?

    If that guitar was worth 5 grand it would sell for 5 grand . For that kind of money I would have to play it first .

    Priced to sell! LOL...yeah, cuz it's stollen or fake.

    Almost any time you see a Suhr guitar for sale, new or used, they throw a pic up of the original manufacturer spec sheet...but not here, red flag #2 (that price was #1).

    Take a look at what similar Suhr guitars sell for.

    My Suhr Classic S Metallic Ltd was worth every penny, though it was only 3K.

    I don't blame you at all for wanting to play one first.
