Looking at one of this teles. Just wanted to get opinions on his build quality. I am debating between a used custom shop tele, a Wildwood thin skin, and a Ron Kirn.
I think he actually sources the necks. Like, I'm sure he does the fretwork, and probably some shaping, but I think he gets the basic neck from Musikraft or something.I thought he did all necks to order.
What do you mean by “his pickups”? I think he installs any pickups the customer requests.I own one of his guitars now. Its a blonde blackguard telecaster style, maple neck and fretboard. The most beatiful transparent blonde finish I've ever seen on a guitar. It is simply a superb guitar. His pickups sound really good too. Full sounding with lots of twang, not thin or shrill sounding. My other guitar is a Danocaster singlecut and I feel the Kirn hangs with the Dano well....both sound great and have superb build quality.
He winds his own pickups as well. I initially asked for Lollars in my Tele and he said, "Why don't you give me a stab at the pickups. It will save you a bit of money and I really think you'll wind up liking them." This was after several conversations we had. I'm glad I opted for his pickups. They sound great!What do you mean by “his pickups”? I think he installs any pickups the customer requests.
