They look cool, and I like the headstock shape. However, they won't sound like a normal Jazz due to the bridge and pickups being different. Still, they seem like a nice platform for modifying.

yea, I posted about these a few months ago and everyone was like, "these are the same old shitty jazzmaster copies" and I was like, "no they're not, look at them, they're an exact copy of a jagmaster except with p-90s instead of humbies."



I think they're really cool. it's pretty much the only jazzy style copy I've seen to get the shape right.

I like this weird little headstock carve.

The string bar is atrocious.

I've had a few old Japs with string bars, so I don't mind them at all on an odd shape headstock.

String bars scream "Cheaply made". Seems like all the old cheap jap and knock off guitars used them.

I don't mean cheap in price but, cheap as in way high action and feeding back like a motherfucker (not in a good way). I've owned a few that I considered throw away guitars that fetch a few bucks these days.
