James' first Thorell Guitar "The Grand"

It’s a short story. Jim talked his wife Debra into moving to Utah so he could mountain bike on the nearby Wasatch Mountain Range. After two years of enjoying retirement from the San Francisco Fire Department he went shopping for “the perfect guitar” and met luthier, Ryan Thorell. Jim fell in love with Ryan’s guitars, ordered one and asked Ryan if he would allow Jim to sell Thorell Guitars. Ryan said yes. Jim wanted to season his guitar and couldn’t find a device that would play-in his instrument. So he designed primeVibe with lots of help from speaker engineers. It’s a labor of love….love of music and great sound.
