Suhr Mateus Asato S Black PRE-ORDER September 2024

SKU: 1-SL23991

The signature S-Style guitar of virtuoso Mateus Asato!

Mateus Asato is one of the leading guitarists of his generation. With his awe-inspiring technique, musicality and sound, he has established himself alongside superstars such as Jessie J and Bruno Mars. It is therefore not surprising that he has joined forces with John Suhr and his team for his weapons of choice. Because if there is anyone who knows every nook, cranny and crevice of the guitar and how solid an instrument should be, it is John! This Signature guitar is based on the Classic S model. This means that you are dealing with an S-Style guitar that combines the best of the last century with modern upgrades, such as a comfortable compound radius, HSS pickup configuration and Locking Tuners. Mateus' input is first found in the specially designed pickups, which are perfectly balanced and have exactly the right output and EQ characteristics. The HSS Configuration makes it incredibly versatile. The 63+ Singlecoils sound open, full and fresh; perfect for all styles from blues, funk to soul. The Asatobucker in the bridge position is perfectly balanced with the MLs and delivers a very nice lead sound with tons of sustain and attitude. Insanely expressive! Mateus was also extensively involved in the design of the neck, and here we opted for a very beautiful Roasted Birdseye Maple design with Indian Roswood fingerboard and a nice smooth profile. This neck is perfect for legato and slides; thanks to the roasted maple you feel just enough resistance. The whole is made in a super chic Black Gloss Finish with gold hardware. Do you want to become as expressive and versatile as Mateus Asato Himself? Then look no further, because this signature Suhr has everything you need! Includes luxury hardshell case.
