the reason I ask here, is you guys know stuff the reason I haven't asked RK directly is he's got to have better things to do and the reason I ask is the story "records lost in computer crash..." just doesn't sound legit. https://seattle.craigslist.org/est/msg/d/kent-ron-kirn-custom-strat-birdseye/7010910079.html Ron Kirn is a master custom guitar builder who uses old-school finishing techniques and nitrocellulose lacquer. This guitar was a custom build from 2010 – I asked Ron for details and unfortunately due to a computer crash, he no longer has the specs for this instrument. Ron's website: http://www.ronkirn.com/ • Flame/Birdseye neck • Quilted Maple top • Locking tuners • Wilkinson bridge • Recessed jack plate – one of Ron’s signature features is recessing the jack plate so that it’s flush with the body. • Custom wound pickups (I asked about wire gauge/resistance, etc but the info was lost) • The neck is on the thicker side – if you looked at Warmoth’s sizing, I’d guess it would be more of a Fatback or 59 Roundback. Just to be clear, it’s not a Warmoth neck, I’m just using their sizing chart as an example: https://www.warmoth.com/guitar/necks/backcontours.aspx • It comes with a case and tremolo bar. It looks like it's a TKL hard case with nylon exterior. The case is in good shape, but the exterior is a little on the dusty side. All zippers work. • The Guitar condition is great. Since it is a nitro finish, there are 2 or 3 lacquer depressions on the back and sides that do not break the lacquer and could probably be repaired with heat but are VERY unnoticeable unless you know where to look. I've never gigged with it, just light studio use. I'm not the original owner, but judging by the condition, I think it would safe to assume it hasn't been played much or gigged with at all. • I believe it’s a 2 piece neck, solid back maple with a maple fret board, and it looks great! • Ron also confirmed in his email that new, this guitar would cost over $3000 to build if ordered today.
