I wish I'd started younger. I was 13 and playing Beatles tunes. I don't regret that but jazz and classical demand an earlier start. Imo anyway.
I was 30 when I got a clue and made a lot of progress but still...
Well, I'm comparing memories almost 40 yrs old so cut me some slack :D
But I respect your opinion. Now I just hope to find these at my GC someday. They have a J Mascis model but I can't say how that compares either.;)
My whole experience with Jazzmasters is from borrowing one from a friend of mine back in the early 80s. His dads so it was probably a 60s.
Ten yrs before I had a reverse Firebird with soapbars and I thought the Jazzmaster sounded similar. I know it kicked the crap outta my amp at the time.
Looking at YouTube for some comparisons but couldn't find one that nailed it down on both.
Anyone here play either or both? I'm more interested in sound than neck, finish, weight etc.
Squier CVs are usually a good deal but if the P-90s blow then I'd like to know.
Saw John and the crew this past Wednesday. I'd been hoping for a chance to see his 4th Dimension assemble but didn't think it would happen since he hasn't toured in the States for a long time (that I know of).
This is the band that really clicked for me. I haven't heard such a cohesive assemble...
Not sure what you're referring to but the pic is unclear. The cluster on the upper bout is fuzzy but the original had a series of slider switches.
Had a friend that owned an early model (pre 65) that looked similar except for the HBs. His had P90s
Congrats on the 2008. Great price. I have a 2010 I bought new and have left it stock. I love everything about it.
After playing both a newer Am St with Fat 50s and the Pro I have to say they're both fine guitars but the difference between the two is minimal imo.
Both sets of pups sound more...
First is the worst. Soon you'll be able to stop flogging yourself for the odd dubbed note or botched vocal. All in a nights work. Suck it up and move on.
Good luck with your band. There's nothing more fun. (veteran of 50+ years)
I didn't find a lot outstanding differences between my 2010 Am St and the Professionals I demoed. Sounds more vintage but....
I have played a Special and I own an Am Spec Tele and the pups are huge sounding. More like HBs in some ways. But fit and finish are great on both Strats. Different...
