    No, I like it so much stock, I’m going to leave it as is.

    I recently assembled a Jazzcaster. It has a Dimarzio Area T neck pickup(fantastic sounding!) and a Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge(sounds like garbage!).

    OMG. Is that a dark grey body with a Spitfire pick guard? One of the nicest JMs I’ve ever seen. Thanks for posting these pictures.

    Here’s my 2018 Classic Player Jazzmaster with the darkest Pau Ferro fretboard I could find. It weighs 8.0 lbs. and plays and sounds great. I’m happy to find this club on TDPRI.

    Is that the J Mascis JM? I can’t decide between that one for $450, a TVL for $1395, or no new one for my next guitar.

    I love my CPJM but it would be fun to have a great inexpensive guitar and also a vintage spec JM except for the rhythm circuit toggle switch.

    Probably I just get both the JMJM and TVL eventually.

    Hi, yes it is the J Mascis. I have also 2 copies of the new classic vibe version. I bought the sonic blue and right out of the box it played great. I also bought one of the new black FSR CV Jazzies, which has a lovely thick anodized plate. I've never played the TVL, but they are so beautiful. If it were me,I would go TVL, but it would be based purely on my funds at the the time, i.e having the readies to buy.

    Above: Not my Jazzy, but I have the same.

    Bought a new one shortly after high school graduation in the spring of 1965 (just before the new 1965 models were released). My only electric until I sold it due to raising four young sons alone and needed the money in the mid 1970's. Loved that guitar. It was also my first new guitar.
    Here is a pic of me playing it in college in 1965.

    In 2012 I bought a Squier VM Jazzmaster also in sunburst and feel I have lost nothing in comparison to the old one. (except for the new one being in far better shape than the old one would have been by now). Only mod I have done to it is to replace the stock pickups with Fender Vintage '62 Jazzmaster pickups, just as what my old one would have had (Fender changed the pickups slightly with the 1965 models and my old one was still a 1964 model as the 1965 ones weren't released until a couple months after I had bought mine. That I was glad of as I wanted one that looked like the one The Ventures played without the neck binding. Also when I bought the old one the lead guitar player in my band had a sunburst 1964 Jaguar and we wanted them to match.

    Anyway, here is the new one.

    Here is my baby, got it at a shop in Portland Maine about 20 years ago. After researching and dating the pots, which are 1959 and along with the markings on the neck and body I have come to the conclusion that it was sent back to Fender in mid 1962 for a ‘repair and refinish’. At that time they refinished it in Olympic White and put a new neck on it which is stamped July 1962. It is a great sounding guitar.

    I'm probably 8 pages back talking about my Squier Deluxe. It's nice but the Tune o Matic bridge has taken out two high E strings in short order with some wiggling of the vibrato arm. I guess I could stock up on E strings or try some replacement bridge. I stopped looking at aftermarket bridge upgrade kits as there were several kinds and all a bit confusing. I guess a roller would be indicated and I'd be willing to try it long as it wasn't too expensive. Otherwise this one might get sold even though I do enjoy playing it.

    Maybe a burr or rough spot on the E-string saddle? Or it could be the string catching on the bridge behind the saddle.

    Yes, no need to get rid of a guitar you like before taking it to a pro to have the problem addressed.

    I have the AOM on my Classic Player Jazzmaster and every time I think of changing it I tell myself to “leave it alone!” It works just fine with the vibrato.

    But a roller bridge is an inexpensive drop in replacement and since the Fender American Professional Jazzmasters now have the Mustang bridge, I’m going to find out if I can put one of those on my CPJM.

    See...I can’t leave it alone.
