      I have 2 Godin 5th Ave's one with out the cutaways with a single P90 like pick up and the other is with the cutaway and has 2 P90 like pick ups.

      I have Chromes on both now.

      No bad instruments.

      I think Eastman has some lefties, but Loar doesn't.

      Not quite the same, but nice

      All these arch tops can be a bit temperamental with feedback at higher volumes.

          Peerless might have something: http://www.peerlessguitars.eu/#/elec...549480806..but it won't be $500...

            A bit more money (ok a lot more), but this will be awesome. I have a TN Rose and love the thing.

              thx for the responses..

              the godin kinpin looks nice, bit its not a thinline

              what i like about the century is its simplicitiy, one pick up, thinline not big jazz box like design without any cutaways and the color....

              to hendrix one would be an option, but the controlls are in the way so i also would need to drill two new holes and have then two holes open...
              it would be an option but thew two holes would look silly...

              and i'm just asking, not really that i want to buy (again) a new guitar

                I hear ya.

                The body depth on the Century is about 1-3/4" and the Godin 5th Ave is like 3"
                Gretsch 6120's are 2-1/4" deep, some of the Players editions are 1-3/4 to 2-1/4" and have a center block.
