  • Is this really a Jazzmaster?





    or is it just another dual humbucker maple cap Les Paul descendent?

    Well, I'm assuming it's bolt-neck and 25.5" scale so I wouldn't call it an LP Descendent. I'm going to go with it's a guitar.

      What does Fender call it? If it calls it a Jazzmaster, that's what it is.
      No sig.

        Do you think it's a Jazzmaster?



        Does it feel like a Jazzmaster?



        Do you want it to be a Jazzmaster?

          No.



          Fender could buy a herd of Holsteins, and call each one a "Jazzmaster," and sell each bovine animal as such.



          Wouldn't make them guitars.



          Vis-a-vis Jazzmasters, that thing in the OP is a cow of a different color.



          Just sayin.

            Here's a line I found funny from the Select Thinline Telecaster page:

                  Eh, I am ok with HH and even flames, I guess, but I think the Jazzmaster should at least have one of its defining features - like the rhythm circuit, vibrato, or pickguard shape. Then again, I'm not Fender.

                    According to Fender: yes, it is.



                    According to me: no, it isn't.

                      Guitars = Chick Magnet
                      Guitar Hero = Guy Magnet
                      You do the math.

                        When I first saw these, I wondered if they would sell well at all. I wouldn't have high hopes. I'm betting that those that want one should just wait a year or so for the inevitable blowout sale.

                          I wouldn't call it a Jazzmaster, but I'd be tempted to get one for the neck. Ditch the rest and make a cool partscaster. I love the look of that style of Fender necks. After playing one of the MIM Cabronitas and being floored and disgusted at the same time, I've been really considering a parts build.



                          Edit:



                          I figure this would be in the Blacktop or Pawn Shop series. F that buy for the neck bit. Yikes.
