Description from Dave’s Guitars on the Blonde 62 I bought from them.I've seen people lamenting that Wildwood hasn't had "thin skins" for a long time and I'm not sure I get it. The "Thin Skin" models were basically AV's except modified to have a thinner finish, larger frets, and a 9.5" radius fretboard. Thing is, the American Original series basically IS all those things. So... what exactly would be the point of a "Thin Skin" model? How would it differ?
Mine weighed 7.2 lbs., also has vintage clay fret markers.
“Vintage Blonde, Thin Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish with no poly base coat, Ash body, 60’s C shaped Maple neck with a 9.5” radius slab Rosewood fingerboard and medium jumbo frets, Custom Shop Texas Special Tele pickups, Three saddle vintage style string thru body Tele bridge with the barrel Steel saddles, Vintage style tuners, 7.8 pounds, With hardshell case”
I prefer the Thin Skins… Dave’s also said Fender won’t let them order more for a year or two. Probably the AVII is the reason.
