2010 Thinline Cherry Burst

This is one of several telecaster style thinline project and is my own guitar.

All finishing was done with water based products, including the burst.

Tonally, this guitar has a very rich tone in the bridge and neck position pickups. There is a lot of detail and clarity, enough high end without becoming piercing or fatiguing and sweet mid range honk. I attribute the quality of the sound to the chambered Honduran Mahogany body with the maple top but also, the Van Zandt pickups. This is a winning combination.

The specs are as follows:

  •     Single 12” wide Honduran Mahogany Back (chamoiré grain pattern) with a small piece added to the side to complete the body width.
  •     Canadian Hard Maple top with flame pattern.
  •     Flame Maple Maple Neck with tilt back headstock.
  •     Padauk Fretboard.
  •     Stainless Steel Jescar fretwire.
  •     Pearl dot markers.
  •     Tusq nut.
  •     Allied Lutherie double action truss rod.
  •     Grover tuners
  •     Fender USA bridge
  •     Van Zandt Pure Vintage pickups
  •     Alpha 500k dual volume controls
  •     Alpha 500k / 0.022uf Tone Control
  •     Waterbased Lacquer finish
  •     Tung Oiled neck.
