More fuel for Jazzmaster desire. I cannot find Norah Jones and her band's live performance of this song on Conan that was done just a day or so earlier....a superior recording to this one....but in both recordings the Jazzmaster in it sings like no guitar I've ever heard.<br /> <br /> Jason Roberts is the guitarist playing this gem of an instrument.

I would recommend a traditional style Jazzmaster with the rocking bridge, JM style tailpiece, the works. So many JMs are that in body shape only these days. Even the Squire Vintage Modified Jazzmaster is a good guitar. ( I have the Jag)<br /> <br /> I have a MIJ '68 reissue JM that is a wonderful guitar.

Smart girl! (;^D)<br /> <br /> I love my Thinskin Jazzmaster - one of the nicest guitars I've ever owned.<br /> <br /> I'll echo Hammond101's recommendation of the traditional style models. The hardtail versions are kinda cool, but don't capture the true sound and feel of a "real" JM.<br /> That "offset trem" design is unique and adds so much to the guitar. And those big single coils deliver tones that nothing else quite matches.<br /> <br /> And it's also true that the Squier's are quite nice, if her budget is limited. The J Mascis model has gotten rave reviews from day one.<br /> <br /> Edit to add pic...

Yea, go with a traditionalish model.<br /> <br /> The Mascis has a TOM bridge but the correct trem system, and frankly, It sounds like a Jazzmaster down to the behind the bridge harp effects. <br /> <br /> Stupid well-done for what it is, if you can stomach the color option (i.e. there is none!).<br /> <br /> Mine is magical.

The Jazzmaster is a very cool guitar I link my review on my 65 Reisue below. As the the others have said try and get the traditional model. <br /> <br /> On the Squire Modified Model I used to have the Jag version and it was very rattly on the bridge and would need a fair bit of work to setup.
