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. 


A guitar that couples traditional values with unparalleled class.
The flat top and set neck feel at once familiar and inspiring.
With many options available to make this a truly serious players package,
it sets the highest artistic standards at its price level.
