    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.

    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."

    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!
