Sent by DanielEditor: Daniel, this is an excellent question. We often have trouble cutting bread in even slices too. Although we have to say that a wave-style knife (like this model from Wüsthof) really, really helps. It gives you a lot more control and precision than the long, serrated blades.
You can also order a cutting board with a built-in slicer:

Readers, any DIY kitchen tips or hacks for getting thin, evenly-sliced bread?
