So this has arrived and I am a fan of Thinlines, one day a '72 reissue will be mine, oh yes. But this looks cool, although it needs a maple board in my opinion, and a Lake Placid Blue colour scheme.

The big question, hot or not?

Should Fender leave Gretsch to Gretsch, cue outraged posting ala PRS Silver Sky...or it is a welcome addition to the Cabronita line, ready for a chunky caliper?

That, of course, significantly improves anything.

But I fear Fender are doing a Gibson trick here, with all these odd, thrown-together models.
