    I am looking at pulling the trigger on an American Original 60s Thinline Tele in Aged Natural from Sweetwater. These guys always did me right.
    How bout some experiences on this baby. How about the Tim Shaw pickups? How are the necks on these bad boys? Nitro finish also! Hmmmmmmmmm, thoughts?

    I don't know anything about this guitar, but would love for you to post a photo or two of the model and color you are looking at :)

    Ooooo! Very nice! Really nice grain - ash I assume? I am really partial to the steel saddles instead of the brass, as well. I think you need this guitar ;)

    Edit: Wait! I NEED that guitar ;) I just need to change the pickguard to brown tortoise shell and add it to my avatar!

    I got the same model 2 days ago (but green with brown tortoiseshell) and I’ve been very impressed with the build quality and sounds.
    The shop I bought it from set it up with 10s before sending it out to me.

    The only small thing I can complain about is that I wish the taper on the volume pot was a little better, but that is easily fixed.
    I’m still in the honeymoon period, but I’m extremely happy with the purchase so far. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
