My next non PRS build - a killer whale this way comes this fall. In Blue of course
That’s looks perfect, like a great visit from an old friend. Like that you have a trem on it with the P90s. Need to try one one of these days.
Oh man, I want this exact guitar. Love the Cherry burst. Will be getting my PRS first, but this one is on my shortlist.
Just saw your guitar is Instagram famous.
Those Huber orcas are pretty cool.
#1 2007 Gibson R6
#2 2011 Gibson R7
#3 2009 PRS Korina McCarty w unengraved 5708s
I'm more comfortable and in better control with the larger neck profiles on the Gibsons. The McCarty does have generous shoulders especially for a PRS and that gives it enough for me to work with, and tonally it's got a ton of character. It's had 57110 Stainless Jescar fret wire on it for years. The R6 is just perfectly balanced tonally and sounds huge.
Wow, that Orca is fantastic!
This is my favorite non-PRS. Sadly it’s several rungs behind quite a few PRS in a fire situation. But still..
The OCD freak in me insisted on historic reissue LP’s with gloss finish and no pickguards (PRS influence?) and I managed to land this perpetual energy machine. The resonance is supernatural.
Do you have a link?
Wow! Give me that guitar in a hardtail and a slightly more Fender-y neck I might never play anything else. That's just a beauty! I'm still in the honeymoon phase, so it's too soon to claim any objectivity, but I'm playing a $300 tele thinline with P90s for the past weeks that I freakin' can't put down. My 3 times more expensive strat and my 10 times more expensive 594 are getting precious little playing time at the moment. I definitely will always want to have a strat and something with humbuckers, but the combination of sounds that P90s have living in them just might be my sweet spot. And P90s in a minimalist guitar like a tele is feeling pretty hard to beat. This Thorn has my radar up...
The same thing happened to me with my ‘79 Les Paul Deluxe. After years of modding, I realized that I had the wrong amp. Once I fixed that I came to love the mini hummers. Sometimes, it’s not the guitar’s fault for sounding wrong, it’s probably the amp...or you.

Pfft....that's it? I'd sell it, post haste!
Yeah but, but, but..........the tone, the tone.
Can't get enough of drooling over this trio Tom
And in my case it is 97.4% likely it's the latter
I love it, nails that classic LP sound, with better articulation (25” scale). The Haussel 59 pickups are terrific and also split really well. This has a light weight Spanish Cedar body which I like. My build will also have SC backwood. Build quality is immaculate. I need to compare it to an R9 or one from a M2M build. Empirical research!
If you haven’t already, you should try the PRS Pattern Vintage neck carve, little deeper but the asymmetric carve is very comfortable! My favorite neck carve of any builder.
