^It looks like someone covered it in glue, put on a blindfold and then stuck a handful of random parts onto it. At least it stands out though, which is a fucking incredible accomplishment for a Jazzmaster in 2019.

I'm not sure if it counts cause they're Squiers (let alone vintage), but this guy seems to have a hobby of chopping up Squier JMs and selling them.

You'll notice he uses the actual same bodies for 2-3 "guitars" at a time so I guess he just has all these parts lying around and will whip it up for you on demand. It's basically a custom guitar :w00t: .

My personal fave:

Ehh.

There’s another guy who does something similar and I have no idea how he sells a damn thing because they look awful, he doesn’t disclose what the bodies or necks actually are that he uses, but like they’ll straight up have a Fender decal on the headstock and the listing will say “CUSTOM FENDER JAZZMASTER” or whatever even though it’ll obviously not be even a Fender neck, and then also these wack flame burst variations and stuff, all with electronics on par with the VM line and maybe, like sometimes, he’ll put wide range reissues in one, but not often.

But reverb refused to let me sell that Rhoney Starcaster neck I had because it had a Fender decal on it even though I was absolutely clear about who made it.

Whole app/scene of guitar trading or whatever really fucking sucks right now.

Sometimes, rarely, a Jaguar neck was labelled and used as a Musicmaster neck.

Sometimes, some doofus thinks they need a locking nut on a Musicmaster.

Somebody else already bought it - hopefully they are the crafty sort.

The post-war American dream was to have a cool guitar, a cool car, and a house with a swimming pool.
Here's 2 out of 3:

For sale. (had a Valentine's discount to 2600 so probably room for an offer).
I've said before, I really quite like this one! Someone's changed its pickups since its last appearance on this thread, though. It looked better before with the full on EMG style humbucker.

No collet, weird routing off the jack plate that’s covered with plastic, extra knob coming out of the guard, extra holes in the jack plate Jesus Christ people we’re trying to have a society here

I kinda like that 70's van / Corvus Mustang. I think I'd let it keep on flying it's freak flag.

I almost bought this one as a restoration project, but that neck pocket gap is just nasty. Too many red flags.
