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.

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.

NECK PROFILE

MODERN ELLIPTICAL (.800″-.850″)
The Modern Elliptical neck is a fast and sleek shape with enough girth for you to really grab onto when you want to dig in for wild string bends or playing chords.

FRETS

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

SCULPTED HEEL

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 of our neck pockets are precisely fitted by hand, by expert craftsmen.

MODERN BODY SHAPE

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.

TONE WOODS

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.

BODY FINISH

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.

RAW WOOD FEEL

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.

HARDWARE & ELECTRONICS

The Modern Satin is available in two bridge/pickup configurations: HSH or HH pickup configurations, and a Gotoh 510 or Gotoh Floyd Rose bridge option. Both pickup configurations utilize a 5-way mega-switch to serve up an array of versatile split-coil tones.

GOTOH 510

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.

GOTOH FLOYD

The Gotoh Floyd Rose is a double-locking tremolo that features hardened steel saddles and locking studs for improved performance and tuning stability.

SUHR LOCKING TUNERS

Equipped with staggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.

HSH CONFIGURATION

  • SSV Neck Humbucker
  • ML Middle Single Coil
  • SSH+ Bridge Humbucker

Positions 2 and 4 on the 5-way selector switch auto-split the humbuckers when combined with the middle pickup.

HH CONFIGURATION

  • SSV Neck Humbucker
  • SSH+ Bridge Humbucker

The 5-way selector switch gives you two split-coil tones. Position 2 splits the neck humbucker, and position 4 splits both humbuckers.

VERSATILE SWITCHING

The 5-way pickup selector switch gives you access to a variety of humbucking and authentic split-coil tones. 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.
