Chuck Thorton is an incredible boutique builder who has built his stellar reputation on guitars like this one. The playability and tone are top notch, the build quality is of the highest level, and the tone is clear, woody and strong!!! It has Wolf tone Marshall head pickups, Faber bridge, and a beautiful trans black nitro finish that looks like very dark blue or oxblood. weighs 8lbs 12ozs. Another amazing guitar from Thorton Guitars!!!!!! This one is preowned but in very close to brand new condition.
