Ron Kirn Basic T Signature Swamp Ash Natural, 2008

Ron Kirn Basic T Signature Swamp Ash Natural, 2008

The Ron Kirn Basic T is just what it sounds like – a basic T style guitar, very well built, well finished and with high quality components throughout. Ron Kirn has been building, repairing and finishing guitars in Jacksonville, Florida since the 1970s. At the time, custom builds were the only way of getting high quality T and S style guitars, as the production quality of major manufacturers was at possibly its lowest point.

Fender American Professional Jazz Bass Olympic White

Fender American Professional Jazz Bass Olympic White

The Fender American Professional Jazz bass is an update of the Fender Deluxe bass, originally released in 1960 and quickly renamed as the Jazz Bass. Fender believed the narrower neck and single coil pickups would appeal to jazz musicians. This bass became a legend as it caught on to more than just jazz players and it has been heard on countless classic recordings. The Fender American Professional Jazz bass retains much of the character of its ancestor while being updated with modern features to create an amazing contemporary bass.

National Raw Brass Resophonic Guitar

National Raw Brass Resophonic Guitar

New for 2020, the National Raw Brass 12 Fret sports a new lightly ‘distressed’ finish and still delivers the warm, rich unmistakable National sound. Also available in a 14-fret model and Raw Steel finish.  The National Raw Brass Resophonic guitar is built like other models with steel bodies and single 9.5 inch resonator cone, but is visually distinct with its retro ‘Chickenfoot’ style cover plate and new finish. This finish can ‘work’ a bit better than the highly polished and reflective surface on the more expensive models, meaning that it won’t show smudges as easily.
