The body is Ron Kirn’s favorite tone wood of Paulownia, a Japanese instrument wood used for the best traditional instruments in Japan for 100s of years. The Pickups are custom wound by Ron. Great tone & feel.It is light and very comfortable with contours built in.Custom features added to the make the cost to build over $2300 Current eBay price is a steal for this quality
