    As Ron suggested, I opened up the back and adjusted the trim pot for the Baggs. Apart from that, it was ready to rock from word go.

    Yikes! I had to go out and buy myself a new bucket to catch all of my drool after looking at that. What a gorgeous piece of art! Congrats! :)

    You know, birdseye is actually a defect in the wood. I'll be glad to take that defective guitar off your hands and even pay you a little bit.:D

    That guitar is drop dead gorgeous man. I love it and hate it, since it makes me jealous as hell. :D

    Congrats and enjoy.

    Stunning piece of workmanship, as is all of Mr. Thorn's artwork. I love the blueburst, as well as the inlay on the surface of the fretboard.

    I said it before on the Thorn Board, but I'll say it again here. That is one of my favorite Thorn's that Ron has built. It's making me a little antsy to get my Birdseye topped SFC.

    LOL... To tell the truth, while it wasn't cheap, I think it was a good deal. :) It's no wonder Ron has a pretty sizeable backlog.

    Although it is definately not my bag, I'm sure it is an amazing guitar. Congrats!
