Ron Thorn Artisan Master #102 - $5,100 Shipped/Paypalled CONUS

I am the original owner of this sexy beast. As you would imagine, it sounds great, and plays even better. The neck is soooo comfy - it's Ron's "medium C" with rolled fretboard edges. It comes with the original G&G "gator skin" case.

There are a couple mods from the original spec:
1. I replaced the 5-way with a 3-way

2. I removed the neck pickup cover so I could do some magnet flipping. I do have the cover if you really want it but it's pretty bent up. For you old Thorn forumites, you may remember way back when when Jim Wagner had a hard time getting quality gold pickup covers. These Darkbursts are from that time period. The covers are pretty crap. That being said, they're not an issue in any way, it's just the metal bends easily...and it is, so you'll never get it back into shape.

3. I replaced with control knobs/switch tip with custom Rosewood/Amboyna burl parts by THG Knobs.

Bump.

Maybe possibly might maybe consider a trade for a 335-sized semi-hollow. Maybe.

Had some tasty offers so far - thanks dudes!
