Well, that's basically perfect.
Put a Mastery bridge in there, and you'll be really happy with that guitar. I'm not sure what kind of pickups those come with (the V-Mod, which I don't think sound like a "true" JM, or the pure vintages), but I'd take that one for sure. Mine looks identical, minus the block inlays. I've been really happy with the guitar. Something about a good JM that no other guitar can replicate.
I *think* these are nitro as well? Not sure about the bridge upgrade merely because I dont use the trem and I desperately need to sell off equipment .
Also not sure what the neck profile is on these either.
I know that Fender did a run of MIM nitro JMs, I just don't know if that guitar is one in the same. You'll want to upgrade the bridge at some point, even to a Mustang bridge. Even normal strumming can pop the strings out of place.
The neck profile is probably their deep C shape. I like a fairly chunky neck, so that shape works well for me.
Yeah there were 3 ltd eds and this is the classic one. Deep C would be awesome as I enjoy big necks on F type guitars now .
Those mastery bridges arent cheap *sigh*
No they are not unfortunately. What I'd do is grab a Mustang bridge as a hold over. That should be more than good enough. Mine has a tune-o-matic bridge on it, which works. Eventually I'll replace it with a Mastery.
Here's mine with Alu neck (Alef). The JM shape is great for counterbalancing the neck's weight. Also looks great.
Did that one up awhile back because I loved the shape, super comfortable. Even though it's got tele pickups, they’re hot as fuck and it's in drop C, with compensated saddles. Been thinking about doing another one...
This thread is gonna cost me money. I can see it now.
"So Sweetheart... regarding that pain from your wisdom teeth... How crippling did you say that is?"
I dunno... seems like a long shot.
So the guy with the ltd ed classic player raised his price - to $100 less than new.
I countered, so either he agrees or I buy that american pro after all.
Had a Vintage Modified but man did that leave a sour taste in my mouth. Abhorrent bridge, bad sounding pickups, thing couldn't handle detuning a single string for like 5 minutes and retuning it without throwing everything else out of what
Been looking into some nicer ones though, cause damn if it wasn't a joy to play
Word on the street is the classic players are pretty good for a reasonable budget. Discontonued though so you will have to look around.
To this day, the Classic Player's strat was one of the best Strats I played.
I was offered a very clean black JM, but passed as the am pro is a good deal and ot black. Black JM's with tort guards is one of the few black guitars I can stand.
Black JMs are cool in general. They aren't as common as the brighter-finished ones.
Yeah, but I need something bright in the arsenal. It's been a minute.
I have a black strat and I dont need another black guitar, ever . Grey or white .
Ok, settled on the american pro.
Now we wait.
I want a telemaster (jazzcaster?) or just a vintage modified HH jag with the hums took out and 2 singles put in
or that Fernandes that’s like a TEJ but a jag
