More about 2021 Ron Thorn Masterbuilt Prestige Acoustasonic® NOS
For years, Ron Thorn had held onto a few pieces of very special wood—a secret stash saved to build just the right instrument. When he saw the design for the new Acoustasonic Jazzmaster model, inspiration struck for the perfect use of the planks.
Named in celebration of the woody perennial plants used to create it, “The Trees” is indeed a remarkable Fender Custom Shop take on the venerable Jazzmaster name. Thorn crafted the guitar using “Stradivarius” spruce for the body, quilted mahogany top from “The Tree”, sinker mahogany for the neck and delicate “falling leaf” wood inlay work for the fingerboard. Thorn said he was honored and emotionally touched to fashion these personally prized woods into an instrument with such a combination of rarity and elegance.
“’The Trees’ is the pinnacle of my career,” he said. “A special instrument that I know its owner will cherish for its beauty, its tone and its use of these storied timbers.”
This instrument is one-of-kind and was sold to Thomann Music.
