JM Rexter/Dano/Spitfire

Post by HH1978 » Wed Mar 06, 2019 2:20 pm

This is long overdue, as this project has been completed a couple of months ago. I post this to pay tribute to our own Rexter's fantastic work.


Specs :
- Rexter JM ash body, firemist silver metallic
- Danocaster neck (I bought this neck a couple of years ago from a forum member)
- Vintage tailpiece/tremolo
- Staytrem bridge
- 1965 neck pickup
- 1959 bridge pickup
- Traditional JM wiring
- Spitfire aged mint green guard

That’s my ideal maple neck JM right there.

That is all kinds of awesome!

How much did those pickups set you back?

Man, every day I spend on this forum I get closer and closer to splurging for a good maple fretboard jazzmaster.

Uh :w00t:
I'm not that into the relic thing, but this one goes way beyond those considerations - the colors, the subtle alterations to the headstock shape (dang, this is one of the coolest 'almost the original shape...but not quite' pegheads I have ever seen), the blend of old and new...It seems to be oozing mojo out of every crack!

Thanks to you all for the sweet comments.

I don't remember exactly, because I bought those pickups a couple of years ago. I think somewhere around 350€ for the set. The bridge pickup has been rewound by Mojo pickups (UK).

Man, I was so tempted to buy that body from Rexter (or one just like it)...
My new and undisputed absolute favorite colour on offset guitars! Congrats!
