...Or is it just the latest baby-talk from the up-and-coming artisanal cork-sniffery set?
They've been a thing from at least the 60's.
I've had a lot of guitars to which Jags & Jazzies have been a very low percentage. I love the offset, but hate hate hate those stupid bridges & vibratos on most if not all the traditional Fender Offsets.
My offset of choice is the Vista Jagmaster with its Strat bridge.
That's how they've been described for decades now......it's not a new term.
I just bought a Fender MIM Duo-Sonic, which is an offset. Should have it Monday. I can’t wait!
I used to have a JAZZMASTER for a few years, another offset, but it seemed like it was huge on me (I’m 5’8”)
They are some of my favorite and least favorite designs. Because they're more adventurously designed, they succeed or fail spectacularly.
I don’t believe that the OP is serious. He can’t be. (Me a few weeks ago.)
I have one too, it's the most comfortable guitar to play!
Yes, offset guitars are a thing, almost always have been. I have a Jazzmaster (designed in 59) and a Firebird (designed in 63). Both offsets. Both magnificent.
There's not too much to complain about with Tele hardware:
Nope, they’re not a thing. They don’t even exist. Just a pigment of your amalgamation.
OP, you do realize that they've been around since the 60's?!
Heck... they got their own forum too...
Or with improved upon features of the top 3 Fender models by the Man himself -
The Fender Jazzmaster that came out in 1958 was the first offset guitar, the Jaguar in 1962 and the Mustang in 1964 and they were marketed as offsets. So it is hardly a new term.
I dig some of them. This one is fun.
I have a Squier Deluxe Jazzmaster and it might be my favorite electric. The trem is very subtle compared to my G&L S-500 Tribute. Gets VERY bright clean sounds and can rock pretty good too. Maybe not good for metal, I wouldn't know. I just put a roller bridge on it to replace the Tune-o-Matic (kept breaking the high E string at the bridge).
I love my offsets.... Now tell me, is a double cutaway a real thing?
heck a strat is an offset
My first thought when I read the thread title.
