A few old friends....

Post by zhivago » Wed Mar 07, 2007 7:29 am

just found some pics on my hard drive, so I thought I'd share....

first, my 70s Sunburst Mustang:

Image

The Mustang was sold alongside my 80s MIJ White Fender Jaguar (can't find a pic), so I could buy this 1967 (neck stamp 13OCT66B) Candy Apple Red Jazzmaster.....it was a refin, by the way:

Image

Image

Image

Image

thie above guitar was stolen from my flat...it was missing for months...in the meantime, I bought a 1964 Jazzmaster, that I had refinned in Firemist Gold

eventually, the stolen '67 was returned to me...I then sent it in for a Black refin....

Image

Image


they were both really nice guitars...they are both now sold, though :)


feel free to add pics of offsets you have owned in the past....

I like the look of that Mustang, and of course those JM's look incredible.. I'm was so happy for you when you got the '67 back, I remember how crushed you were when it was stolen. It seems it's all worked out for the best.. not only for you now having your dream '61 but Jon gets that beautiful '64 and your singer the '67

Jazzmaster hat trick!  :D  :-*



my first vintage Jazzmaster.. starting with a pic I took a couple weeks after I brought it home from Toronto, the refinishing process a few months later, and the pics I used in it's ebay listing when I had to sell it a year later.

...really - you can post as many pictures as you want of that firemist one - I am in serious love with that one.  Who did you sell it to?

wow, this one looks almost exactly like my black one (refinished CIJ with pre cbs tort guard) :o
the color of the guard is spot on, and the wear on the finish is very similar too.
