A new MJTele thread...

My stuff should be nearing completion... Mark and Matt have been great to work with, and they treat you like an old friend.

Great communication!

Pics soon....

Last month I got an MJT Jazzmaster body in Lake Placid Blue. The build has turned out to be one of the nicest guitars I have ever owned. I love it. Still smells like lacquer too!

Care to share your hardware choices? I'm starting to get a little obsessive researching about what to use? I'm pretty set on nickel - I plan to do a slight aging.

Hardware on hand:
Callaham distressed heavy knurled dome top knobs.
AVRI 52 RI bridge and saddles that I reliced
AVRI 52 RI control plate that matches the bridge
Neck plate and screws from a 2006 US Tele

Supplied by MJTele:
Tuners, kluson style
50's string tree
bone nut
string ferrules

I've got most of the slotted head screws and just need to source a few more.

I'll probably get a bakelite pickguard from Callaham, or an AVRI 52 RI one if I canf ind one..

My neck and body have the "closet classic" aging with no chipping, scratches, dings, checking or dirtying. And the vintage gloss finish with only a few spots of wear through the outer finish only. This way it will age in to my use.

I'm thinking about asking Santa for a SD Zephyr bridge pup.

MJT builds make me want to do an MJT build. My specs would be very similar to yours - closet classic. Can't wait to see it!
