I'm pretty sure that was put there to fix the fretless buzz on the fingerboard there.

I would really love to see a picture of that bass in use, on stage.

I'd actually really want a Jazzmaster with this mod. It's a bit too expensive, and it doesn't seem to be all that well done but yes, I'd rock this.

Basically it becomes two thirds of a 12-string, doubling the DGBe-strings. An early guitar rock group called the Tielman Brothers did this to their Jazzmasters and because of them it's pretty common to find on (mostly) European vintage pieces.

Honestly I think it's really cool. Strings in courses sound excellent. If I got a vintage JM which that had been done to I'd probably leave it alone. Also- like 'a fender mandolin grafted onto the bass side of a '52 Tele and the whole thing getting covered in rhinestones, it's a cool window into a particular time and scene (though...not in this case as someone has done it to a more recent JM but whatever :D )

So, abandoned house, leaky roof, vintage guitars...

The fret markers from the D'Angelico are poorly put into the 1959 Jazzmaster (which is mostly "fretless").

Sad, so sad.

Still, pretty good finds!
