    Saw this the other day and thought I'd share.

    Amazing, to say the least.
    That he can get that burst finish without spraying, or even proper paint brushes.
    That he was able to so accurately copy Fender's headstock design (probably has more worries than getting sued).

    Incredible. But do they use nitro or poly?

    Isn't he using that saw in "the wrong way"?

    Incredible but lot's of unanswered questions, where does he get tuners, fret wire and electronics etc. from how does he solder the electrics? Am I just being suspicious?

    They sell them, they make money out of that guitars - the camp(!)
    Well, in the end that is maybe better than going to Germany and thinking refugee is a profession and let us taxpayers and workers pay for his life.
    To be totally honest - those guitars are crap.
    Every luthier starts with wood, fretwire and a handfull of things and some tools.
    Compared to that level Ron Kirn is a GuitarGod - he is any way but you get the point.

    I call it bull****, sorry,

    I'd guess the same way as everybody else. Nothing to be suspicious about.
