About time for some more detail I think. But first, a picture...
Full spec is:
-Thinline swamp ash body, double-bound
-Nice big maple USACG neck with rosewood fretboard. Radius is 12" and scale length is a PRS-like 25"
-TV Jones Classic+ & Classic with BKP-spec CTS pots
-Callaham hardtail bridge
-Schaller locking M6 with pearl buttons
The finish is a lightly-reliced oil, and the neck feels AMAZING. And most importantly, it sounds phenomenal. I've never had a Gretsch or any other Filtertron-equipped guitar, but to me it sounds just as you'd hope. Not quite as brash as the solid body, maple-board Cabronitas from Fender, but a bit richer along with that slight mellowing. I properly love it. First gig on Saturday
The only hiccup is a bit of neck dive because the body is so light, so the Souldier strap I had in mind is too slippy for it. But it's a really nice position to be in where that's the only problem!
Neck is nice and chunky:
