    How does the output of the thinline with 2 humbuckers compare to the ouput of a standard tele with single coils ?

    Thanks, Francis.

    My original '72 Tele has a higher output than my CS Tele, and is very similar to the output of my '75 Les Paul Deluxe with mini-humbuckers.

    Do you have a jap thinline or a mexican made ? I heard the japanese model has much hotter pickups.

    I just don't want to have a huge volume boost when going to my future thinline from my tele, I don't mind having a bit more gain tho', just the overall volume issue... is there a solution for that ?

    I actually have a real Thinline made in 1972. Actually it is a 72 body with a 74 telecaster neck.

    I haven't tried either the Japanese or Mexican re-issues, so I can't comment on them.

    I've never had any major problem switching back an forth between the Thinline and a Tele..

    I had a Mexican one that had a really burnin neck pickup, i sold it to a friend who lives by this guitar, he has become frustrated with that fact that his strat doesn't have as much balls as this guitar.

    I have never heard any Japanese ones with Humbuckers, but I certainly love the quality of the guitars.

    I heard the mexican have more authentic pickups and that the japanese is better crafeted overall.
