Rasmus was a brand name of Suhr, launched in 2010 as a more affordable alternative to their made-in-USA instruments. The name Rasmus was derived from John Suhr's real Danish family name, Rasmussen. The popular Suhr Standard and Modern models were the basis for the Rasmus line. The Rasmus Standard was based on the 22–fret Suhr Standard model that was developed by John Suhr in the 1980's. The Rasmus Modern was based on the 24–fret Suhr Modern model introduced in January 2008 and the first original model from Suhr Guitars since it was established in 1997. Rasmus electric guitars were made in China and featured:

  • Gotoh 510 and Gotoh Floyd bridges made in Japan
  • Fretwires made in Germany
  • Plek fret-leveling job, final set-up and QC check in the Suhr Factory in Lake Elsinore, California

The MSRP of the Rasmus guitars was $1332 including a Suhr gig bag. The Rasmus line was discontinued in 2012 with the introduction of the Modern Satin series.
