I sold off a lot of guitars over the past few months. Four were divested this past week alone. All in order to make room for a guitar that I've been lusting for for quite some time. Probably since 1981, when I first picked up Elvis Costello's album Trust out of a sale bin in a record store in Wiesbaden, Germany, back in the day. I admired his quirky song-craft and eccentric guitar playing. I was an avid fan for many albums and many years, from Almost Blue to beyond Spike to Mighty Like The Rose. I listened to When I Was Cruel just the other day. And I always fancied owning a Fender Jazzmaster some day. One like his, or a close facsimile. And so that day came today. The 2021 Fender Player Jazzmaster black-faced CME Limited Edition. I love it. I need to bring the pickups up just a few miles closer to the strings, but congrats to the Chicago Musical Exchange for an otherwise nicely set-up guitar.
