Thanks, Ralf!

To the identities: LEFT TO RIGHT
- 1998-1999 CIJ in a strange finish. It is like IBM but it appears like ice green metallic or light sage green metallic. Maybe the clear coat has yellowed like crazy...?
- Johnny Marr Jag, all stock up to pickguard and replaced pots. The OEM pots were sorts of on/off switches with a really bad taper.
The pickguard is a dark spitfire that I got locally from a guy who has stopped his Jag projects and sold all parts he had in his drawer.
- OTM thin skin JM. I bought this guitar recently. It is all stock with light gauge strings, 11-48 I suppose, and I'll play it couple of weeks/months before I decide if there is someting to swap or change. I am surprised how much I like the AVRI PUs. But in any case I have some Pickup Wizards, Mojos, and Q-Pickups lying around in case I feel the need to swap the PUs.
- Fiesta red 60s lacquer Jaguar :P

that I got for cheap as a tatty box & multiple B-stock from Anderton's in 2016
...refinished by Rexter. I replaced the wiring with better parts.
- My old trusty Squier J Mascis JM, or the leftovers of it. Basically only body, neck, neck plate, PG and tuners left.
My favourite, the best neck ever for my hands! I ripped out the tom bridge installed traditional bridge posts and replaced everything in the electronics deprtment after the PU switch crapped out in that guitar. It's got a matching headstock and a custom decal from Rothko & Frost
Image
The Pus are early 60's Pickup Wizards.

Hoping to add a XII this year. If anyone is willing to part with one (or parts to build one) ...

Put together this BMM jazzy a few years ago with a loaded 2014 road worn body (2 piece! was sunburst) and a strat neck from '96. Sounds warm and loud and sustains forever. Not plunky like some JM's. Refinished by MJT. Nitro body and neck. Cupcake knobs because they're cute. My bread 'n butter.

Cupcakes are underappreciated, imo. I just put a set of brown ones on my Esquire, plays off the surf green pretty well.

Where do you all find these knobs? Every time I try to find any kind of interesting looking knobs I turn up only strat ones and witch hats and nothing else?

P.S. Why are they called cupcake knobs? Anyone know?

Look into amp and pedal part websites, they usually have a lot of good color options.

Hi everyone, this is my first post but I’ve been a fan of offset guitars since the 90s and have owned too many to mention over the years. These are the three Jazzmasters I’ve currently got with the Ocean turquoise one being the latest I’ve bought - I’ve not had chance to do anything to it yet apart from to drop a Staytrem on it that I had spare. The sunburst one has rewound Japanese pickups in that a good guy in Birmingham did for me - they sound pretty much identical to the AVRI ones. I built the blue one and it has an all American spec. I also have a no -reverse Firebird with p90s but I didn’t know if it was the done thing around here!

Really nice guits there. Are you in the real Birmingham or that pretender city over in the Americas?

As a southerner I'm dying at this. :D

Re: cupcake knobs, is it the little notches on the side that look like how a cupcake wrapper does? That's all I got. Will scope out the pedal sites for knobs! Thanks!

Also I love those guitars Savolover.

The only cupcake knobs I see to buy are tiny things that work for pedals, but on a guitar i want big buttery cupcakes to twist.

I know a guy that booked return flights from Florida to "Birmingham". Thought he'd got a really good deal on some cheap flights. Only when at the airport did he realise he'd arranged to fly not to central England as intended, but to Alabama. He's the type of dopey guy for whom it makes perfect sense that this happened.

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.
