    They’re not available new anymore. Only on used market.

    Sorta kinda true. A handful of NOS Thorns have popped up on Reverb since Ron’s move to Fender. This S/S is listed at 2750 $

    For me it is imposible to price. You can give me a whole company worth of guitars and I will not trade it.

    Yep. I've been offered over twice ( I think almost 3 times) what I paid for my artisan and just laughed. Plus a couple of serious-ish requests for my koi Jr90.

    Cold. Dead. Hands.

    When I croak I'm taking em with me.
    I GOTTA show Bloomfield and Kossoff this Artisan.....

    I am quite lucky to have an R/S and two G/Ts. Simply great guitars. OP - congrats and love the title to the thread!

    Great guitar Mac....my gaggle of Thorns will never leave my cave!

    My wife often asked me which Thorn I want to be buried with and my 2 daughters have already discussed which guitars they can get when I kick the bucket !!!!!!!!! LOL

    Back in the day, a Chicago DJ got some time off for announcing, “we'll be right back with traffic and weather, right after we find out who Jackie Blue”!

    I haven't received any inflated offers like that, so I haven't been tested. Hopefully I'd be able to resist!

    My one regret in life, nor getting in on S/S or Rune model before Ron closed shop:(

    I was eyeing that one, but I think the neck might be too thin for me.
