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. 


Our latest approach to a classic guitar design,
with improvements to upper fret access and comfortability,
offering the player a new avenue in which to explore his personal tone.
The Florentine Cutaway features a thicker body and an elegant
carve top reminiscent of guitars built in the first Golden Age.
