    Is that an older discontinued model, cause I can't find it on Ebay, or Squier's website, or anywhere else. s-l1600.jpg The only one I found that was close was a CAR one on Ebay in Japan, for $600.

    DO IT, DO IT, DO IT!

    I always found Jazzmasters ugly and gimmicky things. Too much like Jaguars, too. I had a '64 or '65 Jag that was just traumatizinlgy bad.

    Then I overheard someone in the 'hood playing a knee-bucklingly great-sounding guitar. It was the J Mascis Squier Jazzmaster. He let me try it out. Oh, Lawdy! Got one as fast as I could, and it (shhhhhh) just may be the one guitar that can out-do a Tele for eloquent variety. Great neck, too. Thicker than the spindly "Modern" Fender C-shape. Even the muffly "rhythm" circuit is very useful through a bright amp.

    And when you're playing one, you don't have to be seeing how ugly it still is.

    Real affordable, too. (Not affiliated w/ seller.)

    Lucas McCain was “forced” to kill in every episode, while his son watched from a safe distance.

    I'm about to make a couple of Tele style guitars in carbon fibre, one 6 stringer and the other a 12 string.
