Anybody have their hands on these?
No, but those are kind of cool looking. I like painted headstocks.
I may get shot for this - and I reserve the right to change my mind at any random time in the future but Thinlines have just never looked right to me. I think I just really dislike the look of f-holes on guitars...
Other than the f-hole, I think they look amazing though!
I guess that I may get shot with @mkdaws32 because I’m not a fan of f-holes either.
Not sure how I feel about two tone bodies...
These are so nice. Let the GAS attack commence.
@Chikubi has one: https://www.tdpri.com/threads/ngd-fsr-two-tone-thinline-tele.996642/
I only like stencil F holes on guitars, I especially hate Fender's F holes. Other than that the Fiesta red Thinline has a real groovy vibe, Danelectro-like with the white sides.
No, but they look nice. I'm not huge on painted headstocks though.
I'm not a fan of painted headstocks either, but for me it depends what kind of guitar it is. For instance my Jazzmaster has matching headstock, which I think looks great. But for me Tele's and Strat's don't suit them at all, JMO though.
They can shoot me too! I think they’d look better with a standard Tele plate with the F hole cut into it.
Firing squad NOW!
Okay - I'll admit that one is pretty sweet with the pearloid guard and candy apply red. I would totally love a solid body that looks exactly like that without the f-hole.
They look nice... I wish they weren't white on the back and side though, but an actual different tone.
Daphne Blue front with sonic blue back and sides, Surf green with seafoam, shell pink with dakota red... or whatever.
Yeah that's a funky pickguard. I like the surf green though...even with the f hole...kinda suits it.
The colours are nice but I never liked painted headstocks with maple neck. Never really got the pick guard on the thinline either. I'd rather have a normal guard and switch plate.
I do indeed! So far, it's been a great guitar and I'm very happy that I picked it up. Seems a number of folks aren't too keen on the Thinline looks in here, but that cool. Aesthetically, I've always liked the Thinlines better than the standards, but standards are great too. Design-wise, the f hole works for me and fills up the negative space that would normally be open, so I guess it's just more balanced looking to me I suppose.
I do agree about painted headstocks though - normally they're not my thing, but it works on this guitar for me; maybe that's because of the contrast from the ebony fretboard. I also don't normally like light colored guitars, but again it works on this one and probably because of the contrast with the black binding and fretboard.
Most importantly, it plays and sounds great to me. Little bit easier than my old American Pro, but not too differently. Best guitar I've owned so far and it has a good bit of character, so I seriously doubt I'll ever give it up.
I like it!
horrible with the white backs imo.
I love the two-tone thing and the painted headstocks, but I don't really dig thinlines. I'm another one for the firing squad.
