Chuck Thorton is one of todays premier boutique builders and this guitar is a great example of why his guitars are so sought after!! The workmanship is incredible, as you can see the choice in materials is amazing, and Chucks guitars play and sound great. This is a 14 inch semi hollow body that sounds as good for smooth sounding clean jazz playing and it does for gritty bluesy rock!!! With a 5a Western Curly Maple Top and Back Eastern Curly Maple Neck & Sides with a gloss nitro finish make these look as good as they sound. There is usually a waiting list for Thorton guitars and they don't last at dealers very long, this is a great opportunity to get an amazing Thorton at a used price without the wait!!!!
