Ron also makes a very modern S-style guitar. He makes them with his own shape, pickups, and from-his-own-shop hardware. Stellar workmanship, nitro finishes, fret work, you know Importantly, he has the most efficient and solid bolt on system available. Players love them! I love his modern Strats, too. Ron and I talked, and he graciously agreed to create an S- style series of guitars just for CR Guitars. This beautiful Surf Green, birdseye maple neck stunner is our latest offering in this series.
What I had Ron do for us here at CR Guitars was to transform his aesthetic so that the guitar looks and sounds like the Strats I love, but keeps his remarkable bolt on mechanism intact. I also requested that he use more traditional hardware, but he and I agreed, it had to be the best of the best. And so it is. Ron used a Callaham bridge. He had Jason Lollar make a special version of his Custom Blackface pickups.
Ron then added Thorn custom made covers. We chose traditional, thinly applied nitro finish colors. And the wood, only the best would do for these special guitars. Vintage vibe meets superhero builder skills. This surf green SoCal has the full-on ’50s era esthetic. It features a stunning swamp ash body with a killer mastergrade birdseye maple neck and fingerboard.
This one calls to mind the classic Jimi kind of tone. The fret work is so great as to bear additional mention. He actually seats the fret directly into the top of the fingerboard so there are no tangs hanging over the fretboard edge. Is it a lot of work? Is the result worth it? The neck has a TruOil finish that is hand rubbed to a silky perfection. With a Ron Thorn guitar, nothing is overlooked.
Every detail is beyond perfect. Check out the ebony dots and inlay on the fingerboard By the way, Ron has done inlay work for the Fender Custom Shop for the last 20 years so Ron knows what these guitars should be like. 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. 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.
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.
