8 years ago I found this tele in a pawn shop. It had an Allparts neck and MIK Kent Armstrong pickups. It was a score as a paid very little for it My buddy played it and REALLY loved it. I sold it to him for what I paid and called it a day. I missed this thinline but never made a big deal about it, heck I never talked about it at all. My buddy did some major mods. The Allparts neck was swapped for a MJT/ Musikraft and the pickups were swapped with a set of custom made hand wound Wagners. We talk gear all the time and I mentioned I would like a Thinline again at some point. To end this novela, he said come visit me and take the Thinline back, merry early Xmas. 8 years later, it plays and sounds 100 times better than when I owned it.
