This is my current crew.

- 2019 American Original 60’s Jazzmaster Ocean Turquoise with the bridge from an Am Pro Jazzmaster and a Mastery trem

- 2012 MIM Classic Player Jaguar Candy Apple Red

- 2003 or 2004 ? Q series CIJ Jaguar Lake Placid Blue

- 1997 CIJ Jazzmaster Sunburst with Lollar pickups

There’s a VM Jazzmaster Sonic Blue that’s a little project I’m working on but it’s in pieces at the moment. Gonna repaint it with a matching headstock and put new pickups in it at some point.
That's the sexiest bedroom photo I've seen in a while. ;)

And here is the direct comparison to a OTM thin skin JM. The OTM on the thin skin looks flat and boring compared to Rexter's refin.

That’s a refin 60s Lacquer JM? That and the jag both look really, really good.

No, that JM is a CIJ with original greenish IBM
finish.
The Jag is a 60s Lacquer that‘s been refinished
by Rexter.

Yeah either way they’re awesome but that JM being Japanese is awesome because obviously there can’t be a bunch of them out there. Really into them both

Here’s my small family. It consists of a highly modified Silvertone, a homemade B-Bender, and a 69 Thinline RI with a Burns pickup in the neck. I’m still looking to get three matching knobs for the Silvertone :fp:

I was JUST thinking about a Burns pickup in the neck position in a Tele. Is it awesome?

Great family.

Thanks! The burns pickup is awesome. It’s a fairly balanced sound with a slight dip in the mids. It’s loud compared to the neck pickup in the Bender. The bridge pickup is from a 62 AVRI Custom Telecaster. The middle position is so nice!!

Lovely Morsite. How do you get one with the tiny neck. Some days I really like mine, other days it’s just too small.

Thanks. I'm okay with the neck. It's a circa 2005 Fillmore Japan. I have a circa 1969 Firstman Avenger Mosrite. I think the Fillmore is more of a faithful reproduction than the Firstman is. The Firstman's neck is wider and thicker. I have no trouble whatsoever changing chords easily on that or even playing single notes. The Fillmore neck is not as friendly but I am not sure how close or different to original vintage Mosrites they are because I have only tried two vintage Mark 1 models before. Once 20 years ago and once 1 year ago. Even though 20 years is a long time, when I tried a vintage Mark 1 last year it reminded me immediately of the one I tried 20 years ago. I am not sure though if the Fillmore neck is exactly like the vintage models I tried or not as I didn't have this then to A/B them. It definitely is narrow though and thin but not sure if it's exactly like the vintage Mark 1s I tried. I also have a 1966 Mark V in red, and that one is truly hard to play, so compared to that one, this Fillmore is easy. I think it's just a matter of getting used to the Fillmore. All the getting used to with the Mark V isn't helping much, just a little bit.

Here is my Mosrite Avenger by Firstman. It's from about 1969. Not as accurate as my Fillmore Mosrite but it's a good one too.

The neck is so much easier to run around with my fingers though but I love both guitars.
