That LPB :? :-*
And the BMM VI is, like I said in your other thread, the most beautiful VI I have ever seen!

The BMM Bass VI & the Gold Jazzmaster are stunning.

Damn..the BMM VI wins every time and looks even better in this pic. Are you going to thin the herd any? Where is the Fiesta VI now?

I’m planning on keeping most of these - I really, really want to add a sherwood green and inca silver JM or Bass VI so maybe something will go but it would be a tough choice...

The BMM is ridiculous - it’s really unbelievable - I love it, of course.

The 1958 gold JM looks like a beater in pics but in person it’s probably the coolest guitar I’ve ever seen - it’s a really special one, too.

I regret selling the Fiesta and I think it’s actually owned by Joe B right now - would potentially try and get that one back as well if I can sell a kidney ;)

...inca silver JM...
I think it was Danocaster who posted one of these on Facebook a while back. It had a mint guard & was typically aged to perfection. Probably not a real vintage Jazzmaster but stunning nonetheless.
