    I just played my Kirn tele about 2 hours non stop and she still amazes me (after 5 years!). The 4 way switch is very cool, the pups POP, and she feels better than any other tele I've played. It's nice to pick up a great guitar and still drool after so many years of playing her. Thanks Ron!!

    Edit to add: The value is incredible, especially when compared to high end Fender models. Probably the best bargain out there when it comes to a custom tele.

    I think we need to see pictures and detailed specs on this amazing tele. Maybe even hear some sound clips or video. :rolleyes:

    Very happy for you, @newminglewoodblue.

    Yeah, it's pretty much a violation of forum rules not to post pics on a thread like this. I'm reporting you!

    Yikes! The cardinal sin (pics or it didn't happen). I have a solution (more jamming!).

    Well shoot - since the OP is apparently no en casa, just gives me an excuse to post mine! :)

    I only clicked this thread to see pictures. Very disappointed. I still dream about a certain red tele with a lil 59 in the bridge on Mr Kirn’s website. Whew.

    Love that guitar, with the dark vein and the big knot. I'll bet it rings like a bell!

    It hardly compares, but I have a cherry burst Squier Strat that has a big cool looking knot in it, and it's what drew my eye to it.

    Yeah it's a great playing and sounding guitar. I'm likely to re-radius the frets and maybe have the neck slightly shaped, but that's just my own preference. These guitars are hard to beat, basically a custom guitar for a production model price.

    I still kick myself for not jumping on one of Ron's Barncasters he had during the holidays a few years ago. HUGE mistake on my part.....
