    Thank you! Yeah, I have a PV52 which is about as traditional and no frills a Tele as there is so I wanted to go in a different direction with this. Wanted to be able to cover as much ground finally as possible and I chose the color and fretboard combo because it matches my wedding band, and the gold because I thought it looks purdy.

    Well she's here and I am absolutely speechless. You read a lot about Ron' craftsmanship and attention to detail on this forum, but let me say that words do not do the man justice. This things is absolutely flawless. The fit, the finish, the feel, the SOUND and even the smell. It's a work of art.

    Owning a Kirn has been my guitar dream since I started playing seriously and now that I have one I can day with absolute certainty that the wait was oh so worth it.

    Crappy cell phone pic but as soon as the rain lets up I'll get some outdoor shots that do the articulated satin finish some justice.

    Ron is currently working on this thinline. Still some sanding to do. REALLY nice wood. If you are thinking the top is bookmatched, youd be right. Also, check out his logo in the body visible through the control cavity.

    Has anyone else found that having a Kirn tele has stopped you from making impulse Guitar buys? My old blackie is so great since I received it last December I have spent more time practicing than I ever have. I have also stopped lusting for guitars. Every time I think I want to get a new Guitar I play my kirn and just think, why? In fact I have had several ideas for even getting a new Kirn and since I can only play one at a time and this one is so great I always end up stopping myself from making a purchase. That said I saw a barnbuster with a Bigsby and a mastery bridge on google image search that did make my heart skip a few beats.

    Looks great! Vintage white is real nice. He does such a nice job letting the grain show through.

    If I ever get a Tele from Ron, it'll be like that, except with a white pick guard. Love that trans white look.

    One of the great things about that color is how a simple pickguard change completely changes the look. Like wearing the same shirt with a different tie. Toirtose for me.
