Daphne Blue Jazzmaster

Post: # 1418305Post singlepup »

I haven't owned a Jazzmaster for a few years, but I recently borrowed a couple of Squiers from a friend. It quickly became apparent that I needed a Jazzy of my own.

Enter the Squier Classic Vibe in Daphne Blue. I guess it's a 2020 FSR? No rhythm circuit, 500k pots, Emerson PIO cap, pearl pickguard, and replacement knobs.

One of the best looking guitars I've owned! Not sure I love the 500k pots, even though I usually like a darker tone. We'll see if I stick with the existing electronics...

Very nice. Though I’d swap the Pearl for a mint guard.

I’d cover it in pearl like an Italian guitar.

Very nice! I can't help but think it'd look much snazzier in a cream/mint guard- so the pickups and controls aren't at odds with the context- but if you like it as it is, that's all that matters!

Thanks guys! I'm kind of liking it as-is. The pearl guard with cream pup covers reminds me of my old Jag-Stang, so it's got teh nostalgia angle.

However, I might change my mind over time. My CV Strat has a mint guard, and it looks ace. I also remember how good Mike's surf green VM Jag looked with a mint guard.

I'm just thrilled with the color. I've developed a bad habit of selling gear that I'm even slightly dissatisfied with, so my intention is to hang onto this guitar for years to come. Obviously I can change the guard or the wiring anytime; much easier than doing a refin!

Looks the business, couldn't do without the rhythm circuit though - mine pretty much lives on that.

You guys act as if I'm not already looking for more Jazzmasters :lol:

Gold on daphne blue is an interesting idea tho. There's a gold & surf green Squier for sale on Reverb:

Yeah I actually like the gold with the green. Much more than I like gold with purple sparkle or vintage white.

I must admit Doog's gold on burst JM was pretty nice too...

Thanks homie. Is it the same color scheme as your Jag-Stang? I've been admiring your guitar collection as you continue work on your studio/basement.

i think this thread is developing an urge for me to replace the dotsmaster guard (currently mint) with aged pearl and the pickup covers (currently polar white) with aged covers.
