Kirn Signature trans red!

I don’t post much, but I’ve got to share this one! I received my Kirn Signature on the 4th, I wanted a few days with it before posting anything...
This is my first custom guitar, and I was a bit anxious while waiting for it. She’s here now, and all is like I’d hoped. She’s sporting an ash body in transparent red with a lacquer finish, flame maple neck/finger board. The attention to detail, especially in the fretwork is out of this world. Hands down the smoothest guitar I’ve played. Ron knocked it outta the park y’all! Here’s a few pics!

Awesome!
As another owner of a Ron Kirn instrument, I can relate - they're superb guitars. Mine is still #1 after over 5 years. I'll never sell it.
I might have to get another....

He really does a great job! This guitar is on another level compared to my others, and at a whopping 6lbs 2oz she's a feather.

A beauty! It looks just like an old MIK Squier Protone I picked up in the '90s. Really good guitar, and I'm sure this one is even better given Kirn quality.

Enjoy!

I’ve been playing it an hour or so every evening, and I’m liking it more and more! So stoked! Ron set it up for 9s and it just about plays itself... effortless! And it’s so resonant, much louder than my USA standard tele.

Congrats!! I’m contemplating pulling the trigger on a Kirn Strat to finish the Fender Kirn Trinity: have a 50’s Pine Telecaster (now with Duesenburg Trem and Neck Humbucker) and a sunburst Jazzmaster. Phenomenal guitars that ruined most of everything else in that price range for me.

ita Going to be hard to beat, that’s for sure!

Your guitar looks great. As far as the playing itself comment, my Kirn is the best playing guitar I have ever put my hands on.

Hands down, I've had to opportunity to noodle around on a handful of very nice guitars over the years, and this one is on another level.

if a water soluble grime.. apply water TO a rag, towel whatever and use that to remove it... then a good quality automotive car wax to protect it... and.. as always, keep it off anything that is a synthetic plastic/rubber material... and a lot of leather that's dyed with an aniline dye can cause color migration into the lacquer.

I read a bit in your booklet about the straps, the neck is starting to get some grime on the neck as I have maybe 40 hours or so on it.Does anyone have any strap recommendations?
