Those Thinskins are super nice. I hope you bond as well with yours as I did with mine.
I'll try to keep my dogs away from mine.
Haha...no you've gotten so messed up with the wait you've resorted to posting dog pics.
Only a few more hours to go...
Don't think so.. the new finish isn't as transparent as yours which is killer..
Here's some quick pics. It's super light. I need to put the switch tip on and plug it in. I'm extremely happy so far
Beautiful. I can almost smell the NGD aroma.
Very nice. Don't waste too much time on here with us, go play that thing.
Played it for about an hour last night and got up at 5:00 this morning and just now put it down. One word describes it - Amazing. :grin
The middle position is my favorite so far with neck and bridge at the same time. It gets some nice bass tones going. The bridge by itself has the twang and clearness you'd expect from a broadcaster. And the humbucker by itself has a nice richness to its sound - no muddiness at all. Simply an amazing guitar. If we were being invaded by aliens and I needed to evacuate, this would be the guitar I would take with me. Of course, after I get my wife and pets in the truck...
The finish on it is super thin, just like they say. I can actually see where it is absorbing into the grain. I can't really feel it, but it's visibly noticeable. It came
with a certificate that says it is a 52 thin skin special run. Produces on June 4th, 2012. It's been in its case for over a year. The neck is not sticky at all either. Maybe the year gave it time to cure?
The set up is great. The shipping and weather did not affect it at all. Wildwood did put new strings on it too Tuning was just a tad sharp out of the case, due to weather changes. I was surprised it was mostly in tune. The neck is great. Of course, I love the 6105 frets. The 9 1/2 radius is super easy to play and action is low with no fretting out or buzzing.
I don't even have to weigh it. They weighed it for me. Receipt shows it at 7.27 lbs. This is a perfect weight for me. It's very evenly balanced and easy to play.
This is a keeper. If I had found it sooner, I would have saved a lot of time and money by not buying and selling guitars. But ultimately, maybe all that got me here to know what I wanted. It's all good. Playing a tele is a journey and a destination.
Congrats on the Tele, its beautiful.
A '52 Hot Rod Thinskin? Why you dirty, rotten...!
Thanks very much for the GAS!
Enjoy and congratulations!
ha ha no, a couple of years of gigging it, storing in the van... repeat many times. the finish just cracked/chipped/sank into the grain.
Telepi - that is one fine instrument, you'll love playing it!
