About This Listing

I personally hand-built this Jazzmaster as a bit of an experiment, "How great would a Jazzmaster be if I hand-picked and assembled everything with the best of the best". I built this during the Pandemic in March through May of 2020. 

The list of parts is a dream build: 
-Warmoth swamp ash body in sonic blue
-Warmoth African Ebony neck, solid, with block markers. This neck is not even available from Warmoth in this wood any more, I am told. This was the first part I sourced and I built the guitar around it. 
-Tuners are locking Schallers, though let me confirm that. 
-Bridge is Mastery M1
-Vibrato is Mastery
-The entire body cavity is completely caged in copper shielding.
-Mini-pots are Alpha, Main pots are CTS, with 500k in tone position
-Treble bleed from Rothstein
-Wiring is all cloth-covered pull-back
-The pickups are Curtis Novak JM Gold Foil humbuckers, but they are single-coil tapped, about which please read on. 
-The rhythm circuit is unique: the rhythm circuit in the up position engages the two mini-pots that dial *between* double-coil humbucker and single-coil. This is commonly termed "dial-a-tap" or "spin-a-split". 
Guitar is being plek-ed right now here in Austin and getting a new bone nut installed. Pic of the Plekening added today. 

The guitar weighs 8.6 pounds, the neck is very dense. Tone is spectacular.
