NGD: Fender Inoran Jazzmaster

Post by mattymatt » Fri Jun 11, 2021 3:37 am

Hi,

A very exciting day for me and I must say, a very important milestone in my life. I got my first ever Jazzmaster! I have wanted one since the early 00's when my friend and I were completely obsessed with My Bloody Valentine all things Shoegaze. I only ever go to play Jazzmasters when hanging out with him and I guess I haven't played one in over a decade. I've probably been lurking on this forum since around then too, but have never owned anything to warrant a post.

Behold... my (new to me) Fender MIM Inoran 20th anniversary Jazzmaster in Lake Placid Blue:

Don't pay the nosey feline any mind

I managed to get it from Japan to the UK, for a little less than what I have seen other Inoran models go for recently. I have to say I'm happy as can be. The two essentials on my Jazzmaster list have always been 1) metallic colour and 2) matching headstock. It's drop-dead gorgeous and lighter than a lot of my other guitars (all Fender, except for one very un-gibsony Gibson and a Gretsch). It's as perfect a Jazzmaster I'm probably ever going to get, not sure I'm ever going to own anything MIA. Now I only need a build myself Sherwood Green Electric XII to complete my dream guitar rack.

I will probably post a few questions over the coming weeks about set-up and accessories etc. as I settle into Jazzmaster life

Edit - I might post some better photos later. Also, after only a few hours with this, my stratocaster might have to find a new home

Sayonara!

That’s really nice looking. The shades of the pickup covers and pickguard work really well together and with the blue.

Apparently, they should be Fender "American Vintage '65 single coil". I had a look underneath and they are grey fibreboard flatwork. Not plugged it in yet, waiting to finish work. Time is going very very slowly
