    There aren't many Thorns built in the ‘traditional' Tele style! 131 comes the closest for me, but I prefer a ‘rosewood’ board. Oh, and 157 is just so cool!

    My pair are definitely not a herd. Though they are heard.

    I came late to the Thorn game. Just had time to order and get a GT in early 2018 before Ron decamped to Fender, leaving me wondering why I had not ordered a Deluxe '58 (not a 90), which is what I actually really wanted. I bored Jaya and some others on the Thorn forum once with this pathetic story.

    Then, to drown my grief, I went a little crazy I guess. I now have 8 Thorns (but still no Deluxe '58!!). That might be a herd, and it's definitely too many. I swear I don't know how it happened. It's like I lose consciousness sometimes, and when I come to ... well. I think it's a form of hysteria. It's not my fault.

    So now I have five G/Ts (#s 72, 102, 106, 111, and 150), one R/S, and two Deluxe 90s. No actual group photo, but here's sort of a collage of the bunch.

    Thank you for letting me share.

    There are four of those that would fit in nicely here. Fantastic herd.
