Dunno what is under the hood, but maybe a replacement guard?

Haha, toggle tried to get out of the way of Rob's arm's strumming and died before making it off the edge of the pickguard.



Fender Pure amberswitchtipz Vintage® witch hats ($35 a pair, yo) being the same color as the covers are a nice touch.

That is an odd position for the toggle switch. I'd like to see the routing under there, might be hope for it without much work.

Someone posted a shot of one of these without the guard (at least I think it was one of these) over on and they are routed differently to vintage style Jazzmasters and so moving the switch down to where they usually are would take a fair amount of work.

Easily solved by using a 3 way slider switch instead of a toggle. Recess it with some fender pickup mount tubing and voila it's out of your way.

Do what Les Paul players do and just don't hit the switch...

Or don't buy that ugly ass hacked jazzmaster when you could probably find a nice classic one for less.

Does anyone else hate these as much as me? And that fucking bigsby too? They look like shit, same with the jaguar. Why fix what isn't broken? I shouldn't be this offended by a stupid guitar lol
For real though every year fender's shit gets worse and worse, I feel like they're trying to make shit that sits in music shops forever. Over these stupid tweaks on classic designs.

I think Bigsbys look amazing but are functionally way worse than jazzy trems

The B3 on my Silvertone is comparable to the trem on the Jazzy I had for 10 years; they just really need properly lubrication (both nut and the mechanism itself).

I think the tension bar on B5s however (like the one this new Baby Jazzy So Prettye has) is what messes with the tuning, as it adds another point of potential failure or inaccuracy.

Ohhhh, you mean the whammy bar; i thought we we're talking about the string tension bar thang. Bigsby actual call them 'handles', weirdly.

I do a bit of MBV-style strummy-bendy on a new Doog song and don't really have any problems with that notch on the B3, but I do have dem large hands
