I just picked up this 2009 Classic Series Thinline today for $300. Plays great, nice chunky neck, barely any fret wear and the pickups sound great, even with the REALLY old strings that were on it. Im gonna slap on some 10s and just play 'er! I used to own the same model/year except in tobacco sunburst and foolishly sold it. I love these MIM thin lines. I rarely see the blacks ones anywhere. Ill post some better pix tomorrow.
