Quality 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. General 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. Tone 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. Finish 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.
DENTED AND SCRATCHED WINNER

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? THIS IS A SCRATCHED AND DENTED PIECE.THE FLAW I FOUND WAS WITH THE UNDER LYING BLACK GLOSS FINISH .I HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE ON MANY GUITARS ( MOSTLY BLACK)THAT STILL SOLD FOR TOP DOLLARS.NO BIG DEAL. General Your general opinion of this product. ANOTHER EXCELLENT MEXICAN MADE FENDER GUITAR. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? ALREADY MENTIONED . Finish How did the stain or paint job look? LIKE I MENTIONED EARLIER A DEFECT IN FINNISH.OTHER THEN THAT IT LOOKS GREAT.
