    I'm not sure of the exact name of this guitar. It caught my eye in the local guitar shop in mid 2000s, I picked it up and fell in love. It is semi-hollow, with a set neck. I changed the Duncan Designed pickups for the real thing. I added coil tapping with push-pull tone control knobs. Plays beautifully and sounds great. It is Telecaster shape but sounds much more like my ES335. It claims to be made in China but the build quality is superb. I think that this model is quite rare. I have never seen another.

    I have the same guitar in natural. It's called a Thinline HH. I put Dimarzio's in mine, Master PAF in the bridge and a Joe Satriani PAF in the neck.

    Yes, I looked-up Master Series and that is definitely it. I can't remember the exact date I bought it, was early 2000s. Seems that they were produced in Korea (bad) and China (good).

    Just checked, it was in fact 2006 that I bought it. Later than I remembered.

    Cool guitar...I've read the necks aren't very chucky, is it a typical, Fender longscale?

    Very like the Gibson slim taper neck. I love it.
