I couldn't rest this one as i had my eye on a pair of them that had been in my local music superstore (don't get me started on the demise of the small independents). I always thought £899 was a little steep for a MIM and the rest of my guitars are US or JP, so I had a bit of a thing against MX Fenders. I only went in to look at the new Squire Cabronita Thinline but noticed the price had been dropped to clear at £650. Great guitar, neck slightly more of a handful than I would normally go for but really comfortable, SOLD! So.. a couple of questions to the Great Tele Hive Brain... The woods are one of the things that sold it to me, the neck has a nice shimmer on the front and back with some light figuring. The body is ash, get it while you can, and unusually (I think) for a MIM, a two piece (result!). It has some strange but lovely figuring when you tilt it into the light, like a kind of snake skin diamond thing going on, I have tried to capture it in the photos but when it really shows up the reflections take over in the camera. Any thoughts on these, they are really nice but not seen them before. The other is about the dual volume controls, is it normal for a '72 for both pups to turn to zero when one volume only is turned to zero? May be the correct wiring for the period does the same, though this isn't a vintage re-issue, it has a lot of the correct appointments so maybe this is the case?? Lastly, is there any point in looking into getting the jazzmaster bridge adjustable 'as a whole' rather than the height one each saddle? I haven't had the strings off yet but it looks like the bridge posts have the threads in them for the adjustment screws, just the bridge is flat to the plate at the moment.
