    Got some very good news this evening. This beauty is almost done. I will hopefully will be celebrating a New Kirn Day sometime next week. When I got these pics they took my breath away. Mr. Kirn has absolutely outdone himsel. Thank you Ron!

    Like it. Looks very versatile and comfy with the arm and belly relief.

    Lovely, lovely, lovely.
    But come on; What were you expecting?
    It's HNKD! And that probably calls for Cake!
    Peace - Deeve

    Thank you all, a Kirn has been at the top of my list for years so this is definitely going to be a happy day.

    Absolutely beautiful!!!! Now to announce my ignorance: who is ron? I see him referenced from time to time, and obviously he's an amazing builder of wooden stringed instruments, but still... who is he?

    Q: Who is Ron?
    A: http://www.ronkirn.com/
    I've never met him, but its a delight to read his posts here on TDPRI and he writes some pretty good copy on his own website.
    Looks like he's got an enthusiastic owner's club (and some of us who aspire to someday commission one of his works of art).

    And best yet - TDPRI is an okay place to admit what we don't know.
    Most of the time, somebody else will show up w/ something helpful to reduce the ignorance and nearly all of the kidding is good-natured.
    Peace - Deeve

    Ron is one of the best builders around, some folks (me) would say he's THE best. More than that, he is just a good guy. He's always helping folks here on the forum, and always gracious with his time.

    Agreed! This is really the only guitar or music forum I use at all anymore. Most of the others, even our sister page, seem to be chalk full of folks who can't be bothered with questions. A lot of condescension, curt responses, and a general air of douchiness. I like it here. Very supportive and informative.

    Oh that could fill a book or two lol he knows more about guitars than anyone else I can think of and is always happy to pass his knowledge on. Hes over 70 and still builds guitars 7 days a week. One time he was out walking in a storm and lightning struck a tree so Ron made a guitar out of it and named it wonder boy oh wait thats the film the natural but anyway during the hurricane in florida where he lives he lost power and whittled an entire telecaster with just a chistle set that once belonged to Bob Villa's grandfather. I made that up. But he is the most interesting guitar man in the world. That is the truth!

    This gave me a good laugh. I think I get what you're saying though... he's the stuff of legend.
