While prolific guitar sideman Pete Thorn may refer to himself as a “guitar nerd” – his resume proves he’s anything but. His effortless, dynamic playing has landed him onstage alongside such legendary artists as Don Henley, Chris Cornell and Melissa Etheridge among others — and his debut solo CD Guitar Nerd garnered critical praise and landed on CD Baby’s top selling albums list.
Pete has been a Suhr artist for over 10 years, and has previously partnered with Suhr to design and produce his signature PT100 amplifier and Thornbucker pickups. Now, we are debuting his Signature guitar at NAMM 2017. The guitar is based off of a custom spec Suhr Standard model that Pete has used extensively in the studio and on tour for the last two years. It’s equipped with Thornbucker pickups (with pickup rings, a first for Suhr) and a super comfortable and fast Even C Slim neck.
This guitar is designed to be a sleek, versatile tone machine with a stunning yet understated look that exudes class and rock and roll attitude.
New for 2019 – Wilkinson Locking Tremolo
After months of extensive testing and critical listening, we are pleased to announce the new Wilkinson Locking Tremolo, now available on the Pete Thorn Signature Series Standard.
This innovative design employs a set screw on top of each saddle to lock the string in place. The tuning stability is comparable to that of a double-locking system, yet the tone and feel is similar to a non-locking, two-post bridge. The action and intonation is simple to adjust, and there’s no need to cut off the ball ends of the strings. Simply feed the string through the steel block as usual, lock the set screw, and you are good to go!
NECK PROFILE EVEN C SLIM

FRETS JUMBO STAINLESS STEEL
SUHR LOCKING TUNERS
