What should have been the NGD of a lifetime *Silverburst B&B content*

Post by algeriet » Mon Jun 29, 2020 5:25 am

One of a kind "Azzmaster" built by Deep Seat Guitars commissioned by yours truly that has unfortunately gone missing at the hands of Scandinavian postal services PostNord sometime around March earlier this year on its maiden voyage across Karlstad, Sweden to Berlin, Germany (apparently sending something with tracking don't mean much these days).

This is a truly unique Jazzmaster with specifications exactly according to my preferences and nothing obtainable on any production model out there on the market today. I've patiently waited for this guitar since I ordered it back in the summer of 2018, and although I have been reimbursed for it, to have it lost like this is naturally a huge bummer. I mean I was 25 years old at the time lol. I don't want no money, I want the darn guitar! 😡😇

Posting this here in case anyone ever sees it; HIT 👏 ME 👏 UP 👏

Specs as below:

Neck
* 25.5” scale length
* 7.25"-9.5” compound fretboard radius
* Flamed maple neck
* Ebony fretboard
* 21 frets - 6105 size
* White parchment binding
* Pearloid block inlays
* Heel adjust truss rod access
* DSG logo and "Azzmaster" along with "Original Electronic Body Music" decals on headstock
* 1.650 (42mm) nut width
* Black Dyna-Guide string tree
* TUSQ coloured bone nut
* Gotoh Kluson style tuners
* 1” thickness á la ’52 Telecaster reissue
* Nitro finish
* Matching Silverburst headstock

Body
* Fender American Professional Silverburst routed for traditional JM wiring
* Black/White/Black pickguard
* Seymour Duncan Antiquity I pickups
* Mastery M1 bridge
* Fender American Professional vibrato
* DSG neck plate
* Strangle switch in one of the knobs, push/pull
* Fender Witch hat knobs

Shipped in an original black Fender American Vintage case with orange interior. Cardboard shipping box read Gibson.

Supposedly PostNord went looking in Copenhagen after the German address only to realize that there are no Straße (German for street) in Copenhagen and returned it to the sender in Sweden, and it got lost on its way. Dunno how PostNord confused DEUTSCHLAND with DENMARK but stranger things have happened!

Oh man. What a beautiful guitar, and a complete bummer that it vanished. I can only imagine your disappointment.

I remember seeing this on Deep Seat / Jazzzprod's site when it was being built and I loved it. Jazzprod has refinished my fretless bass in Firemist Silver and also built me a Bass VI that surely must have been one of his final instruments assembled right before his shop caught on fire. The Bass VI is one of my most prized possessions. He does incredible work.

I really regret not grabbing one of his Marauder 2 builds when they were cheap.

I hope you get your guitar, sorry that happened to you.

That sucks! I had a similar thing happen (not lost but destroyed by a painter) and I got no money back. That was also started in 2018. It’s being made again by a real luthier and it will end up costing more than a CS, but not as much as Masterbuilt. It *should* have cost around $1800...

That’s a drag, hopefully it shows up sometime.

That's such a drag. Hope it turns up somehow.

It's a beautiful build.

Oh that's terrible! How did the painter destroy it? What kind of guitar was it? So sorry to hear, buddy. At least I'm getting almost all of my money back.

Post that Bass VI!!! Haha, yes I remember when he unloaded like three of his guitars for silly money, I wasn't in a position to spend money at the time so I had to bail. Was hoping I'd get to finally experience his work quality this time, but life had a different plan for me and this guitar, haha!

Man, if only you were J Mascis then losing this guitar only to have J comment on my post would make this whole two year wait-for-nothing worth it in the end, lol.

Seen this thing on FB a day or so ago, it's an absolute stunner!

I'd love to get the exact same thing but not sure my wallet could take it, I'm guessing it was a bit more pricey than one of the new 60s originals?
