Very cool, and the trem is really interesting. I hope we'll be seeing more of that.
Why only 21 frets? Seriously, there's no reason for a new guitar to have less than 22.
and the real Thorn models DID have 22, I see.
What is going on here?
Kinda what I was thinking, also.
Excellent execution of some cool ideas.
Ah! Of course!
Dude, that guitar looks good on ya. And maybe it's a bit of the camera angle, but you're what - 6'4" - 6'5" ?
I’ve been playing for a long, long time. Never needed a 22nd fret.
That’s Austin, who worked for Ron. I think 6-5. Cool guy
I’m 2” shorter but girthier lol
Besides it’s a vintage imagined.
People can order a 22 fret version in sure should they desire
Music Zoo has 1 for sale via Reverb.
I like the name and the ergos. The neck is fire too. (Pun intended.)
Gibson=Running over unsold Firebird X with a tractor.
Fender=Killer new collaborations while staying true to their roots.
This is missing a pup & a trem.
Ron's new creation is missing an OFR, a figured top, & 3 frets!
That neck heel needs to be pushed for every new Fender outside of reissues. That gets the heel out of the way!
Ahh, ok then - I saw a big guy with an ear-to-ear grin and just assumed it was you.
...I suppose it could be you though, are you planning on acquiring one of those little gems?
The red one is mine in the pic. The crew sent me that before it shipped out.
The fender C/S version is out of my league..but I play the crap outta my thorn.
It's happily living here amongst it's older siblings...
I really liked it when I first saw it. It's the only other Fender I would consider buying besides the Strat and Tele. Unfortunately, I just can't swing that Masterbuilt price. I would order one if I could get it team built.
I really do hope that Fender takes Ron's ideas and finds a way to make them more broadly available. The one-off stuff is fantastic, but the innovative stuff really should trickle down.
It’s different but to be honest it does have a fender look n vibe to it! The Custom shop does beautiful things!
I'm sure it will really.
'Couldn't disagree more.
Strat pickups, Jazzmaster/strat body hybrid.
Bridge is a throwback look
Control plate could be jazz bass influenced.
It still very fender in look and tone to me.
My custom thorn is further away from the fender recipe I agree.
Thanks for this thread!
I’m EXTREMELY proud of the model, it’s acceptance by the Fender team, the Vibra-Dyne tremolo that has finally come to fruition since designing it to go on the C/S many years ago, and the fact that dealers are ordering them!
Dream come true for me and thank you for all the comments and feedback!
