Yup, after lusting for a Jazzmaster for so many years, I finally bought one during vacation in California. I have to say, it's everything I had hoped for and there's even a little weirdness here and there that's kinda cute, but doesn't really translate through the amp. ¨

Oh happy day!

Any pics?

Iversen, it's about time. We were going to call you to find out what your problem is :0)

Nothing sounds like a Jazzmaster. They're quite versatile.

Mexican made Road Worn Jazzmaster.

I tried a a few of this years anniversary models and a few Classic Players. I ended up getting a used sunburst Road Worn. They come with the American Vintage ´65 pups that the higher end US made Jazzmasters also have. The previous owner had installed a Staytrem bridge, a funkier red shell pickguard (he included three others) and an american Fender tremolo system with the lock button.

It's light, stringed with 11 gauge and a not too low action, plays great and looks pretty damn good too.

And finally, the guys over at the Offset forum don't seem to use the rhythm circuit all that much. I love it and use it for - wait for it - jazz tones…

Congrats! I've got a 60s lacquer that's basically the same chunk of wood and I just put a StayTrem bridge and collet/arm on it. It's a great combo.

I love all Fenders, but Jazzmasters are the sound I heard in my head (probably all those Ventures records as a kid).

After 30+ years, the title of this thread applies to me as well. I went to the 2018 Winter NAMM Show and lusted over the various incarnations of 60th Anniversary Jazzmaster.

Fast forward to late March, and I found one of the 60th Anniversary '58 Jazzmasters in stock. It's the one with the two tone burst body, gold pickguard and Tele knobs. Boom! Traded a 2015 Les Paul in on it.

What a totally different experience than the typical Strats and Teles. In a weird way, it's different in a manner similar to how a Firebird is such a different beast than a Les Paul or 335.

My only really question moving forward is if I should continue with the typical wound 9's or 10's that I put on all my guitars, or if I should go totally retro with flat wounds. What is the general consensus for the Jag and Jazzmaster experts here?

I use Halfrounds(round inside ground flat on the outside on my JS it's OK for a trade off between smooth clean jazz tones and twanging rocking country. You can cover both pretty close.

Daphne Blue 60th anniversary Jazzmaster. Does anyone know if a USA Jazzmaster Bridge reissue with the button lock will bolt in with no modifications.

trackerdan, I think the USA bridge with the lock will bolt into any JM, domestic or imported, without any mods. The bridge is usually the issue because of varying thimble sizes.
