Helix Sighting... Pete Thorn Dirty Town Video

Recommended Posts

I turned my Artic White HSS Fender Strat into a Suhr / Pete Thorn Clone after watching his first Helix demo on YouTube.  The Artic White HSS Suhr he used I just fell in love with.  I PM'd him on The Gear Page and asked for the specs which he provided.


Now my Strat has a Suhr Thornbucker Plus Humbucker in Bridge, Suhr V60LP Single Coils in the neck / middle positions, Suhr Electronics, TusqXL nut, locking tuners, etc.


The guitar sounds fantastic but I need his fingers to really bring it all together.  I'm a Pete Thorn nerd!


Here is the guitar after it was built.  I guess I could have just bought the Suhr model he has.  I'm actually glad I didn't because building this guitar player taught me a lot.  Also he now has a Suhr Signature guitar with humbuckers.  I don't like the Gold and at NAMM they announced a new color but no white.  He replied to my Instagram post about having his signature Suhr come in white so I think it might happen in the future.  I love white guitars so I'm in if they do offer it.
