    And yet... The flesh is weak.

    This one came with case! There was some discussion on the Vintera thread about MIMs and cases, or lack of them. Well, this one has. Wooden, but a case anyways.

    So it’s a Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster.

    Okay, who’s Troy Van Leeuwen? Quick google. Okay, what a heck is Queens Of A Stone Age? Never heard. Doesn’t matter to me that much.

    Quick run-through:

    Neck is flawless. No fret sprouts as previous MIM did. I really like that 7.25” radius.

    Pickups (PV ’65) and thus the sounds are really good. No need to fiddle with them.

    The trem keeps in tune quite nicely. Finish is great all over.

    So, then I should make up some proper use for this...

    Two MIM brothers side by side:

    Congrats! TVLs are one of the better Jazzmaster models right now. I had an Oxblood one with a nice dark rosewood fretboard. Kinda miss it.

    I bought one as a JM guy, but always liked A Perfect Circle and QOTSA.

    Great looking JM. Cool color. And respect to anyone who recognizes the healing power of Daphne and pearloid Teles too. Happy NGD.

    That Oxblood one with the RW board and block inlays is drop dead gorgeous, and I'm not even a JM fanboy.

    Midnight Wine, Oxblood, Bordeaux, are all some of the best Fender colors ever.

    It’s kind of Beatles related in that there is this picture....

    Ah, but that’s how offsets should be. The real ‘sickening’ thing is that a TVL is a ‘66 RI of sorts (bound & blocked), but it has a completely wrong spaghetti logo. *fp*
