Versatile, and Looks, Sounds, and Plays Great
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This was my first Mexican Fender product, and I have been surprised how nice it is. Everything feels solid and looks great. My stock bridge was crappy, though, so I changed it.
Your general opinion of this product.
The one -- and only -- thing that has been a problem with the Jazzmaster is the stock bridge. The strings didn't sit well on it and it just felt kind of cheap. I changed it to a modified Mustang bridge from Warmoth, and it made this one of my go-to guitars.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The sound surprised me. The neck pickup is articulate and full, the bridge humbucker has more drive. I have about 20 guitars and I was trying different ones to find the right sound for a new band. When I brought the Jazzmaster, the band agreed, right from the first song, that this was the right guitar. I often change the pickups on my guitars -- not on this one, though.
How did the stain or paint job look?
It's a good-looking guitar. I have the sunburst. Mine was a B-grade because of a little sloppiness on the headstock finish, but no one but me has ever noticed (and it took me a little while to find the blemish), so I'd expect the full-priced ones to be pretty good.
