I've recently discovered that I like Jazzmasters - my Squier Vintage Modified has shown me that an offset with the proper Fender scale length suits me quite well, even though I could find little to like about the Jaguar I used to own. Short-scale Fenders just don't work for me. So far I'm loving the bridge pickup sound from the JM. Sort of halfway between a Strat & a P90 LP, if that makes any sense? So please tell me which Jazzmaster you have & what you think of it. I've learned a few facts on here in the past, such as (much to my surprise) the pickups in the MIJ/CIJ JMs are actually just Strat pickups in a bigger casing. That was disappointing. And I never liked the fat & very glossy necks on the Fender Japan vintage style Strats & Teles, so I guess I'm not going to be looking at Fender Japans for any future JM. Does anyone have an AVRI JM? What do you think of it? Are they broadly comparable to an AVRI Strat? And how does the older AVRI62 JM compare to the current AVRI65 JM? If they are anything like the Strats, I imagine the neck on the 65 will be fatter than the 62? http://intl.fender.com/en-GB/guitar...nd-lam-rosewood-fingerboard-3-color-sunburst/ And has anyone tried one of the '60s Jazzmaster Lacquers? They look interesting. Only available in one colour, but it's quite a nice colour. http://intl.fender.com/en-GB/guitar...ster-lacquer-rosewood-fingerboard-surf-green/ I'm not interested in anything with a short scale, humbuckers, huge frets or a big fat neck. Apart from that, please tell me what you know or what you think.
