I'm Kris. Been playing guitar (terribly) since I was 13. Owned a bunch of different stuff throughout the years but as styles and priorities changed so did my gear. The only thing I hung on to very long was a mid 80's CIJ jazzmaster that I thought was perfect. Wound up selling it about 7 years ago to help fund a motorcycle. I never really got over that guitar (my first and only offset).
Long story short... I've been getting back into playing over last 6 months on an old Mexican strat my wife had and after years of regretting selling my old jazzmaster I decided to pull the trigger on a new one.
It definitely wasn't the most responsible purchase after blowing money over the holidays but I have been lusting after a burgundy mist thin skin jazzmaster since they came out. When I saw one available on eBay a couple of days ago I had to pull the trigger.
I won't have it for a while but now that I am officially the owner of an offset again I figured I'd stop anonymously lurking and join the forum.
