    Beauty! I've strayed over the years but always came back to a Telecaster.

    What a knockout! The irony is that I don't like black guitars, rosewood fretboards, or that shade of tortiseshell. But that all came together so nice.

    Wowza. That is a looker!

    I bought a Kirn (“Zach Attack” in the gallery) for my brother when he graduated from college about 10 years ago. It remains his #1 to this day.

    Great guitar. But, you named it after a porn actress??

    This was a definite midlife crisis purchase, I won’t lie. But it was cheaper than a sports car and infinitely less damaging than a girlfriend. When I look at this axe, I see a sexy brunette with a honey-colored neck, capable of just about anything — and my misspent youth did the rest. Guilty as charged.

    There is some high-end craftsmanship from @Ronkirn that went into this. Congratulations to you, @corbo for coming up with the design and feature set. It seems very well thought out.

    Congrats on a gorgeous custom! One of Ron's Barnbusters is definitely on my short list :) Hopefully this will be the year as well.

    Thank you, man. I did kind of agonize over everything, from the dimensions to the electronics and the color/finish choices. I just wanted at least one axe I didn't have any "buts" about. This seems to be it :)
