The Modern is not merely a Standard model with two extra frets. Adding the two frets necessitates the change to the geometry to the body and the layout of the pickup cavities.
The balance between the body and the neck needs to be rethought out as well. John Suhr spent many months looking at the most popular 24-fret bolt-on guitars on the market and wanted to offer something a little different but still familiar to those who have played such guitars for many years.
The result is a slightly asymmetrical body shape that balances superbly whether you are playing it strapped on standing up or on your lap sitting down. It looks really cool, too!
