Nice guitar! Those picups look like Anderson pickups not Duncans?
Either that or rio grande's. that top looks bookmatched. Doesn't look like a 1 piece. It sure is purty though.

Damn you, Mintzer, you snagged another one from me!

I was offered that guitar in a trade for my 513.

I said yes and was all ready to go. The dude e-mailed me the next morning and said he'd decided to keep it. :crazyguy :rotflmao :rotflmao

Uh Oh...

Looks like I won't be traveling thru N.C. any time soon... :eek:


Jamie

P.S. I'm still really sorry about that! :D

You could detour thru Colorado, just ship that sweet axe ahead & we'll take good care as we pass it around. Please?

Daaaayam Jamie!!!

I couldn't imagine what would be half as cool as your Prs. Now I understand.:AOK

A Thorn as part of the trade????? Nice!!!!

Your clues of Reggie had me thinking of a Jackson:confused:. A decent clue, but not the best bro. :rotflmao I now understand the 44 thing.

Anyway, great score and it all makes sense now.:D

So, Jamie, what was the other part of the trade?

A guitar to be named later?!?

Thorn #44 looks sweet. Right up my alley, actually.

The wood and finish are quite reminiscent of my '86 Custom so you know I dig it! Enjoy, Jamie. :)

Hmm, I recall you saying you were expecting a shipment but I guess it didn't register with me that it was a Thorn or you left out that little detail. :) It looks like it was worth the extra day. Very very nice, enjoy.

Yeah it's okay I guess.

if you like guitars that are perfectly built in every detail.
Are made out of gorgeous woods.
Have beautiful neck inlays
INcredible tones.
Built by one of the nicest guys in the biz.

Yeah, it's okay I guess. :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

Meh, I've seen better...erm, well okay only in my dreams. :p #44 may very well be my favorite Thorn to date. I think I say that every time I see one, but I mean it this time. Seriously. :D Very nice score!
