Chinese Jazzmaster copy!

Postby Soiouz » Tue Feb 03, 2009 1:27 pm

It seems that one of the Chinese manufacturers of knock-off Gibson guitars has started making Jazzmaster copies... It doesn't look bad at all, IMO:  :-[

Who's going to be the first to risk and order one?   ;)     ;D

Other than the headstock being far too large, the tremolo being in the wrong place and shaped wrong, the pickups being too small, the tort being an ugly bright red, and a blemished finish?  No, not bad!

I don't know if they're really intending for 100% accuracy or not, but usually these Chinese copies *are* pretty close... closer than this, at least visually.

i think that is what's cool about this model. it has this 60's look with the "awkward" things that set's it aside from a nicely designed fender. i would be way more interested in buying this, in terms of looks, than in buying a jagmaster or other "knock-offs". well, okay, i already have a jazzmaster, maybe that's why..

(i know you were just pointing out that it's not a very precise copy)

I've emailed them to see if they produce lefty's and as I couldn't find any type of price list on the site, have asked this question too. Fingers crossed? I got my CIJ Jaguar from apollon music with no trouble after a first contact with them resulted in a very helpfull and quick response with every answer I could've wished for - available colours/shipping times & costs/ payment methods etc'.

Maybe I'm interpreting your post wrong, but I certainly feel a rudeness that's totally unecessary...  :(

You're entitled to your opinion, and I am too... And I don't like my opinion being ridiculed like that too much.



On the guitar itself, when the usual Jazzmaster-style copies we see look like the ones below, I still think this Chinese one isn't too bad...

I don't want to get involved is any "disagreement" on here, but I for one am glad you posted it. Especially if they do make a lefty and the price is favourable.

I've been looking for a budget Jazzmaster of late, and with problems of price-increases / weak-sterling to buy CIJ or to buy new in the U.K. (rediculous price-hiking for lefty models) the fact that I don't think lefty AVRI's are being made and the unlikelyhood of finding a s/h one on Ebay etc', this could fit the bill perfectly  :)

Relax, man.  Maybe I should have added a 8) or something to my post.  I wasn't ridiculing your opinion, however I am entitled to state my own too.  It is a discussion forum - you want the last word, get a blog  8)

Maybe it's just my New York City bluntness... but no offense was intended.

Bottom line to me is that this guitar is a ripoff, and not a particularly good one.

You probably didn't notice, but I have already admitted  in the post before yours that I did interpret your post the wrong way....


But, yes your bluntness opens the door to misinterpretation, and you did it again in this last post (bold in the quote above...).... I'll just leave it there. Peace.

soiouz--- it was a fine post
i cant wait until chris pee tells us the price-- and some details
leave it to the chinese
they sat back and said hey, fenders prices are going through the roof-- let's make some cheaper ones
i think it looks fine for what it is---- let us know chris
and regarding the disagreement--- come on guys-- we are a cool, small community here, let's keep it cool
we all have different opinions and thoughts on stuff because we are all different, and we all put things in our own way
squash it and move on-- you both always have good friendly posts-------
shit i'm tired long ass day at work
i need more guitar time damn it--------
I'm glad there are a lot of guitar players pursuing technique as diligently as they possibly can, it leaves this whole other area open to people like me.
