what a beauty
does it get better than this?
i dont think so
ron is a genius:NUTS:BITCH
Beautiful axe! When you can, post on on the Thorn P90-style PUPs sound, please. And anyone know if they'll be available aftermarket?
Ron said they would in his post. lol I'm curious what the price would be on those too as I love the pickups in my Jr 90, if I could snag another P-90 loaded guitar and they sound similar, that would be great.
MEGA CONGRATS JO! That is "SOME GUITAR"! Ron & TEAM THORN do AWESOME work! Simply AWESOME! You lucky dog!
The GT90's are gonna make an awful lot of folks mighty happy!
That is polexia goooooooooooooooooooooooooood stuff. Wow.
The details on that guitar are amazing, beautiful axe. I'd like to hear those pickups.
Just plain stunning.
One of the best Thorns yet!
The pups on this Artisan will be available aftermarket, but they're a little different from the ones on the Junior Ninety. (The pups on the Junior Ninety, by the way, are amazing. Hands down my favorite P90s made since, oh, sometime in the 1950s.)
From the Thorn website:
"Enter the GT-90s...John, Nick and myself have been working on these since we realized there was a demand for this style of pickup once the Jr-90s took off. After many months of R&D, prototyping and having custom molds made, we are only a couple weeks away from offering the GT-90s both as an aftermarked pickup, and as an option in new Thorn Artisans. They have a similar sound to the Jr-90s, but are constructed "easier"- allowing us to offer them at a reasonable price. They retain the classic P-90 growl combined with the Jr-90 grind."
Oh man, thats a beauty. Congrats man.
And aftermarket pickups from Ron? Too cool.
Beautiful. Not sure I would use the trem or the middle P-90, but that is some spectacular Koa. Is it pretty balanced with that solid rosewood neck? Would love to hear it. Enjoy!
Congrats on owning a "Ten"
Enjoy it in good health!:BEER
Oh yeah, I'm a fan of that one. Great work from Ron and team Thorn.
Wow - that is some CRAZY nice wood on that one!!
Ron is a GENIUS!
Thanks for the kind words everyone.
Genius...oh, c'mon now - Zippy the Pinhead is much more like it, really.
Mama Mia! That is stunning work indeed. The detail work and materials are
the best ive seen yet.
Awesome guitar!!!!!Still love mine !!!!!!!
