Hi there!

Post by EtiquetteMona » Wed Jul 15, 2020 10:56 am

Thanks for adding me. I live in Sweden where offsets are few and far between.
But here’s a nice one, a ’64 Jazzmaster.
Sad news - it belongs to a buddy of mine.
Good news - I can play it whenever I want :)

Hello!!
Awesomw guitar; although I'm not sure what's happened to the bridge? Looks like a meccano mod, possibly.

Yup, a previous owner fixated the bridge this way to prevent buzzing and for tuning stability.
Strangely enough (?) the trem works great and the strings stays in tune.
I can’t understand what took me so long, to discover the virtues
of the offset - the jazzmaster in particular.
It’s like another dimension compared to strats and teles!
But of course everyone here knows that... ;D
