Lauzon Music is the #1 dealer of Suhr Guitars Canada.
John Suhr started his building career some 35 years ago in New Jersey. Searching for the perfect tone, he began building his own instruments. In the early 80’s John started working for Rudy Pensa at Rudy’s Music Stop in NYC. It was during this time that the “Pensa-Suhr” guitars were born. John built guitars under the “Pensa-Suhr” brand for Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, Peter Frampton, Lou Reed, Bill Connors, Steve Stevens, Reb Beach, Pat Thrall, Little Steven, Victor Bailey Pensa-Suhr Bass, Chuck Loeb, Eddie Martinez (Robert Palmer) and many others.
In 1991 John left NYC to work with Bob Bradshaw and designed the CAA 3+ and 3+SE tube preamps and CAA OD100 amp. In 1995 John accepted a job as Senior Master Builder at the Fender Custom Shop. There he built custom guitars to order and was involved in R&D for new product development. His clients included and still include Michael Landau, Scott Henderson, Doug Aldrich and Peter Frampton.
In 1997 John Suhr opened up his own small factory building custom guitars to order. John finally had total control over the entire process of building the ideal electric guitars and basses with the highest standards of quality possible and unflinching attention to detail.
