    Just want to put a quick note out there about my guitar Ron finished for me I got yesterday. Carribean burst quilt top, transblue Korina body, Birdseye neck and F/B, Gold fret wire, Custom wound birdseye bobbin h/b pu/s, amazing inlay back cover, standard firesun inlay designs on f/b that match color of top, check out the 1st and 3rd fret. The purfling just pops too. So many other items they all came together awesome. This guitar is outstanding, plays and sounds incredible, played it through 3 different amp set ups.

    If any of you are going to the Thorn gathering Sunday Namm Weekend your welcome to check it out.

    Thanks Ron this guitar has blown me away.

    If there is a finer craftsman out there than Ron, I havent seen it. WOW!
    Congratulations!
    You really see the detail he puts into his guitars, the top is gorgeous, the inlay work top notch.

    Ron really is outstanding

    Love to hear a more detailed tone report when you have had it for a while

    That's honestly one of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen. A complete work of art. How does it play? It's probably an unwanted question, but about how much does a guitar that fancy run? Ballpark is ok.
    You are a lucky bastige.

    It's probably the fault of the guy who spec'd it out. Right, Dane? :BEER


    Absolutely beautiful. The photo of you holding it with that big grin is what it is really all about.

    Hi, I will say its a very nice guitar. but with all thats going on in world today and problems in the USA , with the war and earth quakes and floods do you really think that its appropriate to buy such a fancy guitar. woundn`t the money be better off being donated to charity to help others during their time of need. It seems very selfish when a modest guitar will do exactly what that so called Thorn guitar will?. Or at least the money spent on that guitar could have bought a few guitars for kids with out the money to buy or replace one the lost !.


    Ok!!. I am just jealous you lucky Dog, I want one too.
    Enjoy it . That has gotta be one of the nicest guitars i have ever seen.
    Happy new year

    I will never look at another guitar the same. That is an amazing piece of work. I'm envious.
