Never done a Thinline, been on my build wishlist for awhile, so when I was approached by an acquaintance wanting a T-style guitar that "has to be lightweight", my answer to that was "Thinline". A couple of his requirements rule out the recommendation: #1 NO F-hole #2 Tummy cut On the plus side, I get to build another guitar. Here's the plan: The neck blank comes first. Those Timberwolf blades are so good, even my cheap little bandsaw cuts like a champ. Not shown, ROSS'd close to line and trimmed on router table. Laid out and cut the Indian laurel fretboard Attached it to my trussrod channel jig and cut the channel in about six passes Drilled out the heel, a little chiseling for the adjustment end, got a pretty nice fit By this time it was getting dark, and as usual, the cleanup almost took as long as the woodworking!
