    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!
