WTF fuck this it looks stupid has a TOM and i'm pretty sure will eliminate you being able to use the buzzstop, which i'm positive will work better in increasing sustain and angle of break.

the ONLY improvement i can see is

an improved neck pocket with increased back-angle


an thats nothing shimming a neck couldn't already do

The Olympic White HH doesnt look to bad. The only thing that looks dumb is the placement of the bridge plate.

i have honestly had no problems with my 66 jazzmaster, with a mustang bridge.... none i don't want sustain with my jazzmaster. that's not the sound i am going for, if i did i would have gotten a guitar with better sustain.

but i understand the appeal, i just think it should be like $200 cheaper

Sustain isn't my issue. It's that I can attack my fucking telecaster. I mean assault it with a pick. Ain't no strings jumping ship on my telecaster. When rmy particularly violent brand of ock intensity approaches 8 or 9, the strings go bye bye on my JM.

But, hey, I loved the sound for everything up to that point, and I am all about jazzmasters and jags, the just dont fit into my MO right now.

I think it's good. It's another option,a nd there is already the CIJ line and MIA for people who want trad stuff. I am not the biggest Fender fan, but I do have to say that Fender can't win with some people no matter what they do.

These are so different in what i think is a cool way. They updated them to be more rocking. I wonder if the changes will work.



I would totally hit this, if it played well.

wait, i guess the tremolo is closer to the bridge to improve string break angle. good? possibly.

i wanna play one to see how awesome.
