I wonder if this means that anodized guards will be available through Fender now.

Uhm..it looks very very nice..but, at a first sight the neck radius looks flatter than standard JM or I'm the only one who see that?
Fender usually did that radius change when the stock guitar has a TOM..but I didn't agree with this :(

I don't know if it's really possible to tell from a picture, but it does kind of look flat.  I would assume that it's probably a 12" radius to match the TOM.  I just wish there were a few options color-wise.  Unfortunately, I'm not too fond of purple sparkle.

I'm kind of disappointed that the first signature JM is oging to have a break-o-matic on it...

Why can't people set up their guitars properly instead of puttin TOMs on?

wowza!

kinda reminds me of the slacktone dudes custom shop jag...

one question... why a j mascis sig model and not a thurston? or a lee? surely they are surely a lot more famous and influential and,
well, have simply made more good music with their jazzmasters ...

hopefully that model will get some proper aged covers and knobs too, looks horrible with the bright white ones.
apocalypse is happenning.

That would be perfect, especially the winter hat.

+1 on that.

Then I'd have to get matching Z. Vex pedals, too.

No no no, it should be a Ranaldo Jazzblaster, a Moore Duo-sonic and an O'Rourke Jazzmaster with maple neck. Just look at the pwetty pictures:
