Future parts Jazzmaster

Post by Zombie13 » Thu Mar 23, 2017 5:12 pm

Hey all, longtime fan of Jazzmasters here, recently, been debating about getting another guitar and I'm on the fence between a Flying V or a Jazzmaster, so I used the Dressing Room (and photoshop) to mock up a potential future parts project.

I don't use neck pickups and since I'm also doing vocals when I play live, I don't have time or a need to mess with tone knobs or switches.

Finding a big headstock maple neck with no inlays will be a struggle though.

Want to stay with stock parts as much as possible, but will be adding in a roller saddle bridge, string trees and maybe a roller nut.

We'll see how this goes.

I love the simple styling of the guitar. But i won't go without the dot inlays... your bandmates will eventually hate you :)

Not everyone uses the fret markers to keep track of where they are playing. The majority of classical guitars, for example, have none at all, and I go up and down the neck of my classical just as much or more than I do on an electric.

I like it!

Sucks for them, I like certain inlays, but prefer no inlays.

Looks good - if you are keen to keep it as simple as possible do you even need the trem?

There is someone you can go to to get a neck custom made, it's at Ali Express https://www.aliexpress.com/store/2291013" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Just drop a message stating what you want and they'll do it for you.

You could replace black dots with maple. BGP might do a neck without dots.

I really understand what you want!
I've built myself a phantomish guitar with nearly the same specs and even without Potis.
Works great and sounds as it should without any extras and that was how i wanted it!

Do it!!!

I agree. The ascetics give it the normal Jazzmaster look, but it might look cool with a hard tail or even with string through holes and a TOM bridge.
