Does that Mustang bridge make any difference? My Mexico JM tail piece is the same, no lock. Do they make a drop in tail piece with the lock?
That’s the bridge that came on it. I haven’t had any problems with strings popping out.

Okay, this is absolutely the color JM I want! I’d have to go Fender Mod shop to get one in lefty. I’m throwing serious hints at my wife for my 50th bday next year.

I probably posted this before when I was drunk. Bit drunk again now tbh. Whatevs. It's still a classic. I dusted it off the other day. When I first played it I had the fire at the fingertips effect, but when I played it recently I realised the action needed to come down a good few MMs.

Here's my mate Rob who finally got his hands on one after I had been building it up for so long -



Here's our other mate Lord Fuzzman who wanted to get in on the action too -



It's not your typical Jazzmaster, granted. But seeing as how Rob has made a whole career out of buying these very guitars (I believe it's is fave guitar of all time), I think he gave it a fairly favourable review.

That purple and tortoiseshell really shouldn't work, but they do. Those pups sound great. It's a looker. Love the scalloped headstock. Revelation make a wonderful guitar at not too expensive a price. My other prized one from them is a black 335 that they had to change the shape of later, as it sort of became a kind of 'lawsuit' guitar, I imagine. Don't quote me on that.

My next guitar, and my very next guitar from Revelation is a Telecaster, would you believe?

I won't give links or post pictures of it - it's not too hard to find if you know where to look and I don't want you buggers buying it before me.

I tend to stare at them more than play them these days, so I want something that looks good!

cheers.

Squier Paranormal Offset Tele, the shape qualifies to me!

The Affinity is a lot of guitar for $280. All of the 2021 Affinity refreshes are considerably better than the last versions. Also, the JM doesn't even say Affinity on it anywhere

I'm working on it. Just received the custom pickguard. Dry fitting and next step is drilling the bridge holes. Waiting for my drill press to arrive, so I can do it right. Then, paint...

Purists... cover your eyes. 🙃🙂🙃 Behold... the TVL Jazzblaster. Soon to be featuring two tone and two volume knobs. Cunife WRHB hide a lot of tones without individual controls to unlock them (I cite that '78 Deluxe on the right as my source.) 😁

After 4 years on the payroll it’s Modification Season for my AO ‘60s Jazzmaster.
Starting off easy - I’ve replaced the stock bridge with a 9.5” radius Mustang bridge from Hosco.

I haven’t had a significant problem with the strings jumping threads on the old threaded barrels, but I got fed up with tweaking the heights back up as the saddles creep downwards: then I looked at my SE245 with its solid one-piece tailpiece and thought why can I adjust this thing in so many different directions? Let’s remove one of the variables… and since Hosco make a 9.5” radius Mustang bridge that’s what I did.
So far - works well, plays nice, doesn’t seem to lose any zing: so the original bridge is sitting in the case and I have one less thing to worry about.

More mods are coming… will post in a while as the JM moves on to the next phase of its existence…
