ron thorn is one of the best and most meticulous guitar finishers in the business tho.
1. Might or might not be the case - I never heard of the guy.
2. Doesn't mean he's a trained painter. He'd be bankrupt if he needed to live of painting things if he takes 30 hours of working time for one guitar.
So if I wanted a guitar with 5 coats of nitrocellulose that has a 4hr drying time, would he take 80 hours?
I dunno. ask him? Is my screen name IamRonThorn
Considering final sanding the wood, prep-work, painting, wet sanding between coats, final wet sanding and polishing... 80 hours is maybe a stretch but I could see 20 - 40 hours going into a quality paintjob, absolutely.
Ron Thorn has stayed pretty far under the radar considering how much work he's done for the big boys, Fender, Jackson, Ibanez, etc.
More recently he did the swirls for the Universe PAW Anniversary guitars.
He can paint.
