BUMP for the Thin Skin club!
Ordered mine yesterday. Selling a G&L ASAT. Can't wait to get it!
Sadly, I'm putting mine up for sale. Just don't play it enough to justify it. Wish I could keep it under the bed, but welcome to 2012.
I recently got a 68 type at Dave's. I'm very impressed with the quality and addicted to the 6 pound weight.
I told myself one of this or 52 AVRI will have to go but haven't made the decision yet. I think I like the 52 style pickups more. One thing I don't get is the 52 AVRI neck seems stickier no matter how clean it is.
These Thin Skins might be under-appreciated gems. Dave's had custom shop models too and I thought the various Thin Skin models were a bargain by comparison.
I've tried it with the stock Nocasters and Keystones. Very similar pickups but the Keystone neck seems more microphone like and pickup very subtle things you do with fingers and pick.
Nice looking. Congrats. I bet it sounds better then it looks
62 AVRI Thin Skin in Sea Foam Green. Heaven!
One of those was present when I got my Thin Skin. I was torn between loving some colors and the weight of the one I got. The Thin Skins I've handled are an incredible value relative to custom shop.
Just got a '62 Thin Skin yesterday. Going to have to sell my Highway One Texas to pay for it, but it's more than worth it.
Wow! These are amazing! I'm jealous of you all.

Sorry so late to the party, but does anyone else have one of these?
Do we have any new members?
1. I was pleasantly surprised to see Wildwood has more but bummed they're no longer at Dave's because the latter's a day trip for me.
2. I was surprised to see the resale value of some of these.
3. No surprise that I still love mine years later. Some would disagree how Telecaster a Thinline is, but it sure is to me and I love the light weight.
Another bump. Any new members? Anyone have those pretty color offset models or the 60s Tele models? I'm still convinced these were/are some of the best Fenders in the time I have been aware. Especially the early ones vs later Wildwood or Dave's didn't have them. Every one I saw and touched were top quality, nice specs and a really good price for a USA Fender.
