Thank you for making the ARTISAN Series more successful than we had ever hoped for!  Team Thorn has decided to put them on hiatus and focus our efforts on the new SoCal series
The model descriptions below are for archival purposes only.  Thank you for your interest. 


ARTISAN MASTER

12 special guitars are built each year.
The summation of all our knowledge and techniques gather over many years experience.
Hand selected tonewoods, extreme inlays and custom appointments are used to
create these one of a kind works of luthiery art that play as exquisite as they look.
