I played one very briefly a couple days ago, & it played very well. It was the "johnny thunders 2" model- I was surprised at how flat the fingerboard felt even though it's specified as 12". I wasn't motivated enough by the appearance of the guitar to plug it in, but it definitely felt good.
I have a Thunders DC that I ordered last year. Billy was great to deal with with and the guitar came out just as I hoped it wood. It plays and sounds superb, and has the best set up on a guitar I've ever had.
One of my personal fave guitars I've played was a Rock N Roll Relics Thunders with the 59 neck. Played and sounded so good unplugged, an amp wasn't even necessary...
They are very cool guitars. I bought a Thunders a while back, it sounds phenomenal, but it has the 60s slim neck, which is not for me. Wish I could trade it for the 50s neck I tried. (I'm very sad about it, because it's such a cool guitar, other than the slim neck not being for me.)
