Includes Calton Case. Hand made and custom fit to your guitars exact measurements in Austin Texas.
Includes Shertler tuners made in Switzerland or the ever popular Japanese Gotoh 510s.

Hand set hide glued dovetail neck. Set in traditional fashion to facilitate ease in resetting. I enforce the neck to move less than traditional guitars however I have not wanted to remove the nuances of old world neck sets and what they offer the instrument
Neck is built from premium grade woods aged to perfection and continually leveled over much longer periods to remove stresses from shaping wood to final dimensions. Contact us for a full menu of currently available neck woods
American made and precision milled two way adjustable truss rod is installed along with reduced weight and stiffness enhanced carbon fiber reinforcements that travel through the headstock joint to the end of the cantilevered raised fretboard end. The nut location is further reinforced with rear headstock veneers for a seamless and break resistant transition.
Enhanced thickness well cured premium Ebony Fingerboard. I use a few different species of Ebony and also have Rosewoods and many other specialty hardwoods prepared for fingerboards.
The hand sculpted “Slim Super C” neck carve is standard and the fretboard and frets are carved into the feel of the neck. I am known for the feel of my necks and can offer a wide pallet of neck dimensions and carves and am excellent at hand carving to match.
Ryans fretwork is renown worldwide and affords an even rich response and attack, upper feel and low action, and full range of dynamic right hand attack. Premium nickle silver, stainless steel, and evo alloy is available in standard 5080 , narrow and small, or jumbo. Standard instruments come with premium nickle 5080.
1 ¾ nut to 2 3/16 string spacing at bridge is standard dimensioning with a 12” compound radiused fretboard.
25.5” scale is standard scale length. Optional 25”, 24 ¾” is available on standard instruments, and custom length or fan fretting available.

Archtop plates are carved by hand one at a time. Through Ryans extensive history of studying different species of wood and styles of build. Thorell guitars benefit from all of the nuances that can be manipulated to standardize the expectation of optimal outcome for each individual plate.
Traditional carve is very much the current standard and pinnacle archtop design much akin to the martin x brace for flattops. Standard with an x brace hand fit and carved per each individual instrument by Ryan Thorell.
