    Got a response from someone that just received theirs. The nut itself measured at 41.6mm. The neck has a 12" radius.

    That looks great as is. I'd leave the original guard.

    It could use a Bigsby for a real Gretschy vibe, maybe with a Chet kinda arm.

    I'm wanting one of these, pretty much any color...If body and necks are decent, upgrade other stuff...

    I must admit, this creamsicle orange is starting to grow on me. But not enough to order one...yet.
    Heres another pic stolen off the FB group, in bright light.

    So having had this for a few more days now, I don't really feel the need to replace any components. Tuners are fine and I have gotten used to the pickups and they're not bad at all.

    That'd look killer with a rosewood board.

    How often do they restock? I like the black one which is out of stock right now.

    Restock on the 335 copys is about 5-6 weeks. This was the first go around with the thinlines so hopefully the same timeline or better.

    My blue one showed up Monday evening. Here it is next to the blueburst Firefly 338 for a color comparison. 977f0960ec842d13a25a547493811ac8.jpg

    Having played a TON of thinlines and owned a ton more I really would suggest you look for a Jay Turser Cruzer or the Agile equivilant.

    I pprefered the neck on the cruiser but the Agile was SO stinkinig close when it came to sound and build quality it was really well done
