    Its actually a super faded Aztec gold with journeyman relic but it almost looks like shoreline.

    Luckily the neck is massive so there's a lot to take from.

    Mine has the vintage Fender tuners, the blue thinline posted here looks to have totally different tuners.

    Unfortunately I needed the money. I sold it to Norm at Normans rare guitars, and luckily got all my money back. Nice guitar, and I still miss it.

    First, I concur with all the compliments to you and this fine guitar.

    880-990 is an awful nice neck, and I'd be a much happier guy had necks of this size always been readily available, but there's larger still.....

    But you might not want that, as the guitar would probably neck dive. I think if you went over 600 grams, for the neck, you could have an issue on a featherweight T type like this.

    I did notice in your playing clip, the guitar wasn't "staying put" the way an 8 pound, four ounce guitar would have. But it didn't seem to bother you, so Congrats!

    I've been considering having a b-bender installed on my thinline.

    Thanks, yes I don’t notice much of a neck dive on it.

    Thinline love... my '69 all-mahogany Thinline, with 2014 Fender Baja '60s neck. They are sweet guitars with a sound all their own. Twang King neck pickup, True Velvet bridge pickup.

    I love a Tele for jazz, and have added 2 thinlines to the stable over the last couple of years.

    Fantastic playing! I’ve been studying jazz guitar for the last 3 years, and every time I think I’m getting somewhere I see a player like you and contemplate throwing all my guitars in a river some place. I mean that in the nicest possible way :lol: Subscribed.

    Some amazing looking thinlines here. Unfortunately I've never owned one, but always here good things.
