As I have always said, it is an option.
IF you disagree then order yours with dots or your name at the double octave, whatever floats your boat

Anything that is not on the form can usually be custom ordered, the order form/price list is for standard options. No Inlay and Special requests area are on OUR order form.
We prefer to speak to our dealers so we actually fill out the form on our end since the options are insane as they are.
I cant possibly list out every request we might have had in the past since the order form would be 10 pages long but if I did....
Funny enough we only remember 1 request for double octave marker at that was 3 years ago. The person wound up ordering the guitar but he decided on no marker.
We are a custom shop so all you have to do is ask unless I think it would make for an ugly guitar.
So whats the beef?

For what it's worth (which is what you've paid for it ) I agree with John.
I also commend him for refusing to put his name on anything he wouldn't want associated with his brand; it's his name on the headstock, so surely he gets some say in what the instrument will be like, right?

I spent some time on TGP...they push Suhrs and Axe-FX over there to the point where there are shills and such that step in to keep pushing the product and any critique ends with a ban.
Having had conversations on line with JS I was curious why he didn't offer up 24th fret markers, his thoughts on keeping a Floyd in tune, how he could in good conscience sell a $4000 guitar and only give a gig bag with the guitar....
Given how much they push the brand there, seen the hype, it's not even about the money at this point, where maybe I would own one if it was given to me or got it for a song where I could turn it. I have played them. They are nice, but in the end, it's just a good fret job that is the money on the high end stuff, and a fret job can be had for $100. Everything else is flame maple this, or the attention to deal that....that doesn't translate to what you put down or inspires you to create music, that in this case, I think I know too much about the guitar that I think it would bug me owning one. More hype then substance, more art then an instrument.

If you think perfect frets are the only thing that separates a Suhr and an SX then you should be an SX owner. The most important thing is to make sure you slander an excellent company with excellent products. If you can't afford or justify the cost then they must be taken down with a sustained internet whine...
That's not what he said though.
I think he's trying to convey what several of us feel: What justifies that price for a flawed instrument?
Of course, I think every guitar has flaws. The price doesn't mean quality, and I think that's what the post above is about rather than "slandering" Suhr. I did not see slander anywhere in that post. It was very opinionated, though.
I have never seen or played Suhr in person. They are not readily available in rural Georgia. I have owned over thirty guitars, and never found one that was perfect by any brand. If I paid 4000 dollars for something, I would expect exactly what I wanted. If you buy something for that much money that is not perfect for you, then I think you're settling.

FYI ....... Govan does not play Suhr guitars anymore.
about 2 years into the model he bails. : (
What a joke. .... Ridiculous
This is why poeple should stay away from signature gutiars and limited editions. I have been preaching this for years and some people get it and some don't
Order what you want. Not what someone else plays. Empower yourself.
Don't be a sheep.

I don't remember. What's the word for people who claim that dissatisfaction for something expensive is only because you can't afford it?
I didn't start a thread complaining about people that don't like expensive guitars, Jack.
