Can we talk again about late 70s jazzmasters?

Discussion of vintage Jazzmasters, Jaguars, Bass VIs, Electric XIIs and any other offset-waist instruments.

While I've never even seen one in the flesh, as a teenager I saw photos of a 70's JM with a maple fretboard and black blocks and binding. I've been obsessed ever since.

I think mine's a '78, though possibly a late '77. The usual sunburst on an ash body, black guard, black strat knobs, beefy B&B neck, big headstock w/ serial number under the logo. By far the heaviest Jazzmaster I've owned, but surprisingly lively pickups. Pickguard has shrunk to the point where it's difficult to get back on after being removed. Excellent condition for a guitar in its 40s.
