I agree I would change the pickguard though. Maybe Black anodized

Yes, it's lovely.

Now, call your parents and tell them to ask for a refund for any school fees they paid. Would of? Would of?

It's "would have" and the contraction is "would've".

Normally I let that sort of thing go, because teaching basic infant-level english to internet users is a task that is beyond anyone's capabilities. I'll even ignore people inserting apostropes into plurals, usually. But "would of"? That's just unforgivable.

Reminds me of another Jazzmaster I once saw...

If you're ever in Chicago (or if you live there) you have to go down to the Lakeview Lounge.  There's a house band that's been playing there for an eternity and the guitar player has a very similar early sixties JM that's been "bedazzled."

The bar is crazy...the stage is behind it, sunken into the wall.  The band kicks ass.  The bass player is a spitting image of David Crosby and they get drunker and drunker as the evening wears on...about 3 am they do a cover of Jimi Hendrix's Purple Haze and drunkenly shout "excuse me while I kiss my ass."

It sounds strange to type it, but I think it's one of the best local things to do in the windy city.

But, no one said would of I only said would and no one else said would at all

Chicage is an incredible city, full of Jazzmasters and Jaguars!

That's where I saw My Bloody Valentine live in '91...at the Vic.

Ah, the memories... ::)

Sorry, though...I'm getting off topic.  I would definitely change the pickguard, too...black annodized would be cool...maybe simple green guard with tons of stickers on it would be better, though!

Damn... that's just... harsh:(

You might reserve such indignation for graver offenses than this.

Maybe you forgot the  ;) ?

I dig the white guard on there!  I'm not a fan of black guards on JMs.  Not natural!

As for the grammar thing, at least it wasn't one of the capital offenses like apostrophe abuse (use 'em for posessives or contractions, not plurals!) or the "anti-Shakespeare Syndrome" where the writer/speaker deletes "to be" from a phrase to completely bastardize it ("This needs fixed" or "This needs done"-WTF?!!).   :D

I think I know a thing or two about nature, just look at my name.
How can you not like Thurston Moore's Lake Placid Blue with black pickguard?
