Any truth to the rumors of new custom color Jazzmasters to replace the colors that have been discontinued?I read a post on the Offset Forum about the possible release of a 1959 JM RI:
"I'll know more when I actually get the prototypes, which should be any time now... or so I was told by my inside. From what I am told there will be the expected WBL and Sunburst 59s.
As far as colors, I have heard some very cloudy rumors. Nothing more than speculation. One being LPB... this rumor seemed to have a little more weight behind it. The other VERY cloudy rumor is that the Shell Pink idea was floated around. If that happened I would flip. In a good way. I wouldn't get too excited yet regarding pink. I was just asked "what about a shell pink Jazzmaster?". Take a guess at what my response was.
I would bet almost 100% those colors were mentioned as a couple of new 62 color options.
All I know for certain (well, 99.9%... anything can happen) is that the 59s are happening, prototypes are coming to me (here real quick I'm told) and that when that happens I am going to devote a couple of days to playing them, disassembling them, photographing every square inch, measuring the pickups, and making a full spec and tone report exclusively on this forum (and our website, of course). Any other for sure info I have will mos def be shared"
Aye, for the love of Pete. On behalf of the unspoken cringers, I implore ss.org participants to not make regular usage of that image when implying robust penile engorgement largely due to guitar-based stimuli.
