The sherwood green are definitely attractive, never saw one in person myself.

My favorites are the Lake Placid Blue (which is why I snagged one!), the Olympic White, and the Black on Black.

Johnny seems to favor one that has a white or silver sparkle finish in the videos I've seen. Will be interesting to see what he's playing on tour this summer with The Killers
I picked up a 2nd Marr Jag in LPB as well. The color is fantastic. Pictures rarely look as amazing as it does in real life.

Does anyone know when they changed the JM Jag bridges to the correct radius?

I don't know when the change happened, but I think you mean string spacing?

It happened when the LPB models first came out, but I think all the available models got the change at the same time.

I think it's both as they correlate to each other. Afaik the Mustang bridge they used before was made for 9.5" radius making the string spacings wider? I mean as long as it's fixed now, I'm keen to get mine!

I finally ordered a Spitfire tort guard for my KO Marr, and just received an email saying it was shipping. Here’s a few pics. I’m stoked to get it.

Nice! Looks more like flames than tort!

Thx! I waffled back and forth between buying a stock Fender tort guard, Fender mint guard, and the Spitfire. I’m glad I decided to spend a bit more and go the Spitfire route.

Looks great! I've toyed with the idea of getting another Spitfire guard for my LPB Marr, but the LPB w/stock mint guard is a pretty good combo.

Thanks! I am lusting over an LPB JM Jag, and I'd keep the original guarg, but put a big NASA meatball sticker in the middle of it. :ph34r:
