The slide switches aren’t hooked up. According to the description.
Someone believes it's the steel in the bridge that gives the Tele the magic ... I've found it's actually the position and clearance behind the plate that causes many players to pick over top of the bridge pickup (and get twang).
I have had the same conundrum of liking both a Tele and P90 bridge pickup in the bridge position. Still debating how to do that build. Maybe a version of the Robbie Robertson Strat (with the middle pickup pushed back against the bridge pickup).
A face only a mother could love...
I like the wavy thing and mint green pickguard wings with the t-shell thing. The bridge plate not so much.
From the bottom of the parts bin.
Kind of like British Leyland car production a few decades back.
Really creative and the craftsmanship looks top notch. I'd like to know what electronics he (she?) used. Super job, good to see every day parts used in a new way. And the price is great!
A confusing guitar! But I would love to play it and hear what it sounds like!
It could be actually kind of amazing starting with a blank JM pickguard and routing appropriately for the pickups (ditching the tele bridge plate of course) and then integrating the tele control plate. Add some fun phase/bleed/cutoff circuitry for the JM switches too.
I have a cunning plan...
For years, I heard that the Tele bridge plate had an influence on the sound of a Tele bridge pickup. I bought into this reasoning and when I used a Tele bridge pickup in the middle of a Strat, I mounted a Tele bridge plate on the underside of the pickguard. I ended up taking it off a few months later in an effort to weigh-relieve a horribly heavy body. My assessment - The bridge plate thing is nonsense and makes no difference in sound. But, I'll bet that's what the builder of this Jazzmaster was trying to accomplish.
That poor little Jazzmaster.
This is what I thought. Why do that to a JM?! Who knows though. Probably be seeing CS models in a couple years.
If that flipped tele bridge plate was Callaham, I'd be all over it.
