Started looking for a high end Tele and ended up contacting Ron Kirn. We traded emails and I looked on some YouTube videos and felt comfortable buying from Ron. I wasn’t going to be able to play any of the potential candidates but I could at least have a conversation with the builder in this case. I received it last week and have been playing it nonstop since. Initial impression is that it is set up beautifully. Great action, baseball bat type neck. Where I am really surprised is the sound. It screams vintage Tele. Plenty of twang. Unexpected treat-the 4 way switch. The sound is a wider range than my other 3 way Teles. I think that the only issue I have is that the finish is a little too “natural” for me. I’m getting better acclimated to the look and it is certainly not a show stopper.
