Ok, the guitar will be ready after Christmas.... but here is a pic Ron sent me.
The Minis are great! Cool pickguard too.
Looks great! Can't wait to see the rest.
Beautiful. The color and depth of the finish is unreal. Can't wait for the final reveal in the new year.
Oo, dat's purty. Talk some more about that bridge.
The bridge has totally seprate pieces for each string. I have not seen it in person, but it sounded like a good idea and Ron seems to like it. Goes clear through the body via a rectangular hole. It is a 2Tek
If you hadn't been on the naughty list you would have gotten the whole guitar.
Black korina or Ash?
Bridge is early Burns-like.
Black Korina. Standard wood for the Thorn Socal is white or black Korina. Ron has a huge stack of these woods
The wood is obviously inferior - look at all those dark streaks in it! Send it to me and I'll sand them out. Such a shame ...
Is that bridge a 2Tek, or a Thorn original? Beautiful in any event.
put me on that christmas list , I wish . great looking guitar
It's a 2Tek. Incredible color/finish!
Love that wood!
I'm supposed to get something from Ron today... "Out for delivery" is all good, but I'm ready for "sign here".
And what kind of neck wood is intended?
Love the wood and the mini's, but I just can't get past the look of the 2Tek. I really like the sound/feel/look of a 3 brass barrel bridge on a Tele-type anyway.
I was considering the Atmosphere guitar Ron had available, but the 2Tek swayed me away.
What kind of Minis is he using in that? And you will have to post clips when you get it. I am planning a build with dual minis and a Hannes bridge, and your guitar just confirmed my plans. It looks sweet!! Cant wait to see it all done. And I dig the Thorn neck joint!!
