Waggler's photos: Tele Thinline build with Barden bridge


Stainless steel frets, Kinman pickups. Staggered Schaller locking tuners - They really don't require a string tree, at least in this configuration, so there is effortless string bending behind the nut. However, these tuners are heavy and there is a little neck dive with the semi-hollow body. Nothing drastic, though. If there was a lighter staggered set I knew of at the time I would have used them. 4 way switching including series. Sounds and plays great. The medium-thick neck with a 12" radius is perfect for me - I have never played a neck which felt better.
