I was looking for something similar to „TELECASTER“.

@proteus: I have to thank you Tim! It‘s a fantastic sounding bridge and intonation is superb!

I‘ll swap the pickups for TVjones and sell him the guitar

Not mine, but what a rare find- 1951 Telecaster with B16 and a Bigsby made custom Pickguard.

Late to the party. I love Thinline Teles, but yours takes things to a new level. Congrats.
