    I got in late, but I'll be looking forward to see the continuing progress on this Thinline Tele.

    Cool that you're going with the '69. I once had a Fender Thiniline Tele Deluxe, and after playing a Squier Thinline '69 for a lark in my local store, I realized that it was the sound I wanted. Ultimately, the Gretsch came first.
