What makes this guitar truly unique is the East Indian rosewood neck paired with a swamp ash body. The tone on this guitar is extraordinary for a T- style guitar. It’s rich, resonant and throaty, making it an extremely versatile instrument with an enormous amount of character. Ron chose a perfect electronic package that really highlights this G/T’s special “oomph.” I’m a huge fan of Thorn’s GT-90T Staple Top pickup. To my ears it’s a cross between a Tele and P90 bridge pickup and matches well with the Pasadena neck PUP.

This a wonderful guitar, with a great feeling satiny rosewood neck that oozes some serious tones of the highest quality. Of course that doesn’t surprise me. It’s made by Ron Thorn!

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT THORN CUSTOM GUITARS
Raised in a family of carpenters, Ron Thorn had access to a home wood shop for as long as he can remember. Repairing, modifying and building guitars since age 13, his specialty became precision inlay work and by the mid '90s he became the sole inlay artist for the Fender Custom Shop, a position he is still proud to retain today. In 2000 Ron began putting the Thorn name on the headstocks of some of the many guitars he was building and today, with his father and the rest of “team Thorn” - John Gaudesi, Nick Viglienzoni, Tony Ramirez, Glenn Matejzel and Martin Bravo, Thorn’s Glendale, CA operation builds approximately 50 custom guitars a year. Those who know, know Ron as one of the most brilliantly talented luthiers and inlay artists of the 21st century. It is a reputation that has earned him a following that is best described as "near fanatical."
