They're all the real deal and all original minus the Mastery bridges. The clear coat on the gold has yellowed from UV over time so it looks like Firemist, its lighter in the cavities. The Inca is a very special one and will probably go to the grave with me haha
Cant stand the mastery bridges...think they really spoil these guitars. But hey apart from that they look amazing...I love the Inca Silver especially! I have a 64 shoreline gold jag myself. Are you 100% its shoreline?? Every gold '65 I've even seen is firemist.
You may be right. I'm not 100%, I've had people tell me both. The headstock leads me to believe its Shoreline as well as the tiny bits where there is a chip and the clear coat is missing. If I ever get a 1965 Fender Custom color chart to compare it to, that'll help. Or I suppose I could take off the trem and look at the paint in the cavity

You've achieved the status where nobody on this board would bat an eye if you pronounced it "jag-you-uh."

That collection of custom colors makes me want to pronounce it however YOU would.
He could even get away with "jag-WIRE."
Haha I pronounce it "jag-wharrr" but now I feel like I should fancy it up with the "jag-you-uh" :D

My guide is this: "jag-wharrr" is the American guitar, and "jag-you-arr" or "jag-you-uh" is the car.

Do you know what book that is? I think I should invest in a nice coffee table book of early Fender models

Somewhere between "I'd never spend that much on a guitar" and "thats a deal of a lifetime" ;)




Also, Fender: The Golden Age 1946-1970 is one of the greatest books ever. I highly recommend getting a copy if you don't have one!

Based on the recommendations here, I just ordered the book (used, good condition hard cover). New condition books are priced pretty high now. Looking forward to having a good read! 8)
