    Well…. it's a 'Pre NGD' but Ron's photos will speak more than my photos ever will and i'm sure nobody will be complaining!!

    I should receive this in 1-2 weeks. I ordered this one in August last year….. Guitar came out absolutely incredible obviously and to be honest i'm not really surprised. Ron Thorn is the man. What an incredible builder…. This is my 3rd Thorn guitar and my 2nd one specced out. What a privilege….

    Full tone report and some of my pics with the rest of the Thorn family to come! Really looking forward to using the 2Tek bridge most of all!!

    Build thread is here - http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?p=19721437&highlight=forest#post19721437

    TO THE PICS!!!!!!!

    Oh wow. Dude that is killer. I'm starting to wonder if Ron is a cyborg. Half man half machine. That quilt is beyond 3-d. And i love the color. Shoot....I love everything about it. Very one of a kind. Bravo
