Hot-rodded Jazzmaster:

Regardless of your feeling on the paint job, that bridge is an interesting design.

They've been using that bridge on 58/59 type Jazzmasters from the Custom Shop. I think somebody on offset requested they sell the bridge separately but it never happened.

I thought I'd seen that before. Still quite intriguing.

Yeah, looks like one of these:



Looks shit and I'd imagine intonation would be a pain in the arse.*

Edit: *aside from this though, it might actually sound/function pretty well. They've been putting it on CS stuff for a year or so now, which I suspect they wouldn't do if it was rubbish.

I'm not a fan of brass as a bridge material. Also yeah, you won't get perfect intonation but if they're angled like that, not too bad.

I generally use a wound G so intonation would be tricky for those style of bridges.

Just a cheap looking Mastery clone.

Not a Jazzmaster fan, but I used to want something like this (the one at the bottom) when I started playing:

Can't remember if the one I saw back then was Kramer or Charvel.
