Ooh-err, never heard of that! I probably won't say it again in that case. Cheers for picking me up on it.

This is how I meant it (not sure how clear this is but it's a link). Kind of a mock-archaic, sarcastic, semi-affectionate way of calling someone a wind-up merchant.


I'd never heard it used that way before. That's a nice, sort of charming expression, I like it.

The way that I'd heard it used might well be a Derry specific thing, where everyone is on the dole, has a bad back and drives a DLA car.

Yeah, that's sort of what I've always thought it meant. Or, as Chambers would have it,

Quote:
card1 noun 1 a kind of thick, stiff paper or thin cardboard. 2 (also playing card) a rectangular piece of card bearing a design, usually one of a set, used eg for playing games, fortune-telling, etc. 3 a small rectangular piece of card or plastic, showing eg one's identity, job, membership of an organization, etc. 4 a small rectangular piece of stiff plastic issued by a bank, etc to a customer, used eg instead of cash or a cheque when making payments, as a guarantee for a cheque, for operating a cash machine, etc. See also credit card, debit card. 5 computing a piece of card on which information is stored in the form of punched holes or magnetic codes. 6 a piece of card, usually folded double and bearing a design and message, sent to someone on a special occasion • Christmas card. 7 a postcard. 8 old use, colloq an amusing person.


Looks like it's only Bacchus who uses it to oppress disabled people.

I know this is shortscale and all but...
I could really go for a Squier Jazzmaster with single coil pickups, a trem, and a non-string throwing bridge that is not the Jay Mascis. They seems to be all about the Jaguar instead.

*edit*
YIKES
Ok I just checked and I guess Squier does make that McDonald's themed jazzmaster. Sorry too ugly.

Player Jazzmasters:



Also available in buttercream, polar white and sage green metallic. Can't seem to get the photos for the other colours to work though.

Fender blurb wrote:
With a fat, thick sound all its own and sleek, elegant style, the Player Jazzmaster stands out under the spotlight. It’s an inspiring instrument with a flexible, authentic Fender tone—a voice that works with any kind of music. The Jazzmaster keeps turning up in the hands of musical visionaries and rebels; it’s the ideal foundation for your sound. Rugged, raw and powerful, this guitar is ready to throw down.

FEATURES
Alder body with gloss finish
Two Player Series humbucking pickups
Push/pull pot to coil-split humbucking bridge pickup
“Modern C"-shaped neck profile
9.5"-radius fingerboard

Likely a 4 or 5-way. Neck, neck+bucker, bucker, split 1, split+neck?

I think that's just a standard 3-way. The coil split switch is on the upper horn.

Fender website specs wrote:
Switching

3-Position Blade: Position 1. Bridge Pickup, Position 2. Bridge and Neck Pickups, Position 3. Neck Pickup

........

Slide switch to coil-split humbucking bridge pickup

The Mushy Peas green is quite cool.

Prefer the active models though, it's new territory for Squier and Fender, as far as I can remember.
We don't like new though, do we? Where's the fookin single coils and traditional decal? Why is the wood white as fuck? Laughing
