    OMG. I Want one too!!

    congrats!! I love the AO teles! Great value for money short of CS stuff!!



    I am a fan of 7.25 radius and vintage frets!! But wait til you try a 7.25 radius fretboard and 6105 narrow tall frets. AMAZING.

    I have long felt that the standard Thinline is the Most Country Looking Electric Guitar of them all. It just screams Country!

    This is why one should always read a Nick Fanis post.

    Once again, he shows us how it is done. Congrats, Nick!

    I've been considering the AO 60's thinline (probably the one with the natural finish).

    The pickups and the neck were the main things I had questions about.

    Is the neck a bit fatter than the Deep C neck they've been using for the American Professionals?

    Are there another set of pickups you'd compare the Tim Shaw pickups to?

    No that's definitely not a fat neck, but I love fat necks and this neck is extremely comfortable, "medium c" is the official Fender description but it feels a lot like a D neck from the early 70s to me
