    God ,this so makes me want my Thorn to be done already... Sheesh. I've got a solidbody P90 one coming in a year with the exact same woods and finish... Um, pardon me while I go wipe the drool off my keyboard now.

    What knob configuration is that? V / T / T?

    1 piece body, inlaid top back into body that is one sweet axe. I especially like the color/grain contrast from light to dark. Black limba is so nice, and dig the bursts. congrats man, Thorn builds an outstanding guitar.

    Rarely do 2 words invoke so much anticipation: 'new Thorn'!

    Congratulations, man. Another beauty. If I wasn't put off by the wait, I'd consider getting him to build me one.
