Kind of funky, cool looking but don't like the fretboard radius with the large headstock.

looks interesting

There's a similar Jazzmaster Thinline from Fender Japan, as well. No F-hole on the Jazzmaster but the double binding is there. I like the Natural Jazzmaster with the black guard.

I'm disappointed with the radius. These days it's 7-1/4" for me exclusively.

MIJ, Got one a couple of years ago

Nice fit and finish
but the bridge rattled like freight train.

Like any new guitar it needed a set up and a good going over.
Cool guitar though, love playing it.

It was a "limited edition" at the time (limited to the number they could sell was the general opinion)

Just recently the GAS genie put the thought in my head that having a matching black hollow body Jazzmaster would be cool. :)

Fretboard radius on that is just mystifying.

Large headstock is a Jaguar thing, they were the first to have them if I recall. Not having one would be a very, very odd feature.

1 inch = 25.4mm

Scale - 324mm = 12.75" I'm guessing they list it from nut to 12th instead of nut to bridge - 12.75 x 2 = 25.5, which is a standard scale length for us.

Radius - 184mm = 7.25"

Right?

Yes, fendrguitrplayr, you are correct. I was misinformed about the radius and am glad you pointed that out. It is, indeed, 7.25 inches, and so specified in the fender.com product specifications.

Great! Now I have to resist that Natural Jazzmaster even more...

I'm trying to resist it myself.

Resistance is futile. Mine arrived today. Intonation was spot on. Just had to tweak the saddles a little bit to tighten and limit the rattle. Also had to clean and oil the fretboard. Awesome guitar. Mine is the black # 126 of 150. Hope to re-string by the weekend and play for worship on Sunday.

Looking forward to hear your thoughts on it.

How do you know it is number 126 ?

It's a very tweak-able guitar that I can dial in a dark thick sound or very surf-y and bright or many other colors in-between. I believe it to be the number because the label on the end of the box said # 126 of 150. Many compliments on sound and looks today at church.

Love Jags & JMs, so got one of these too (#60 of 150 in sunburst)....maybe overpriced at $900, but fit/finish was excellent and it is very cool & different. Like all new guitars, it needs adjustments...pups were way too low, but wouldn't adjust...had to remove pickguard, but easy to fix once I saw what was going on. A pleasant surprise was that the trem arm stays in place when snapped in and doesn't flop down against the cord, although I did have to bend it to make it usable. I'll probably put in a Mastery bridge to really make this guitar right. My question is...is there an inexpensive case which fits?...the body is bigger and a std. Jag/JM case is too small...lower bout dimension needs to be at least 14" and maybe a little bit more...does anyone have a recommendation?
