The Suhr Korina Flame is set for a limited run of 70, and comes in what Suhr calls "Standard" shape, which means that it looks like a Strat.

Suhr guitars is now a well known brand, thanks to its impressive looks and the amazing virtuosos that wield Suhr guitars - most notably Guthrie Govan. Although there isn't much to see in terms of originality, users have been raving about Suhr guitars' workmanship and tone, which have satisfied many professional musicians.

The Korina Flame is their latest offering, their aim is to tie together classic American strat style with modern HSS pickup configuration versatility. It features the familiar double cutaway body, modified slightly for improved comfort. The body is slightly downsized and feature nice looking edges, as well as a side input jack.

According to Suhr: "The Korina neck and body have a balanced tone with a strong midrange growl that allow it to “cut through” ​the mix. The Maple top extends the frequency response, adding brilliance and punch. The Indian Rosewood fingerboard produces a warm and articulate tone while also adding sparkle to the highs. Body chambering not only reduces weight but also adds sweetness to the highs, and warmth to the lows."

The V60LP & DSH pickup appointments were carefully selected by Suhr to cover a wide sonic range, to achieve their goal of making this guitar a versatile instrument.
