Here is a post for my Thinline Strato/Telecaster that I am building. This is my first build but I have been dreaming about it for years. Specs are as follow:

Neck:
1 piece quartersawn maple
Rosewood fretboard
Medium jumbo nickel frets
Double action truss rod
Gotoh 6-in-line standard machine heads
Rolling string tree

Body:
1 piece poplar body
Bookmatched spalted maple top
Alnico II pro 3 strat pickup set
Hipshot hardtail bridge
5 way switch
2 Seymour duncan potentiometers

The neck is ready and the body has blue stain applied that has been sanded back to reveil the grain and then a few layers of danish oil applied.

I have also made pickup covers from the spalted maple as well as the knobs.

I would love critique or any comentary.

Oh Shoot! I’m already planning the next one. I’m thinking of a completley new design, two humbucker semi hollowbody with wool woven sides with a trick up my sleeve.

Love your thinline build, especially the f-hole design. Welcome to tdpri, I think you will like it here. My next thinline will have at least one humbucker, maybe two.
Thx, I hope this will be the start of a nice hobby. Looking forward to seeing other builds.
