Here is mine. Ordered and arrived in 2008. Masterbuilt by Dennis Galuszka. It has been played, modded, dinged, and chipped. My main requests were: 1)the 'green' Sherwood green and not the more 'faded' version. 2)Blocks and binding on a flamed maple neck. 3)Vintage radius/62 shapes.

I have other guitars that I really love, but this is the one I'd grab in all those imagined scenarios. Before it arrived I was already mainly playing Jaguars. This guitar has become the alpha and omega. It took more than a year for me to fully realize just how perfect it was for me. It makes me hypothesize that the people that didn't 'get along' with their custom-ordered Fenders were too impatient, or they didn't know what they wanted.

Nothing significant. :blush: Different pickguard (a Danocaster pickguard for a project he had that went another direction), and a Staytrem collet thingy.

...and they both sound immense through this:

Not to derail. It's simply amazing how good Jazzmasters sound through this amp.

I wish either:

A. Fender would start selling those bridges.
B. Our friends in the East would start knocking them off.

You and me, both. I would love to put that bridge on other JMs! Solid as a rock and sounds great.

The daphne blue one with the maple neck and gold guard is incredible. I wish I had known these existed before I bought a daphne blue 60th anniversary JM. Love the color of course, but as someone who tends not to go for either gold guards or maple necks it's pretty amazing how they both look on this particular model together. Always wanted to try one of the RSD bridges too. How is the neck on this thing - finish, profile, etc?

Thanks. I too, love the look of the gold guard, but in the winter when I played it I was irritated by how cold it was against my hand and just the general feel of metal against my hand, so I changed it out to a mint guard, which you can kind of see in the background with Dr. Z Jetta. I guess the old axiom is true -- you can't have your cake and eat it, too.

I like the profile on the daphne blue better than the shell pink, but only by a little. I have a '62 AVRI in black, and I used to have the AV '65 in white. It is most similar to the '65 profile. I am not too fussed about neck profile, other than most SGs drive me crazy with the pencil thin necks. I had a LP Special that had an absolute baseball bat of a neck and I loved it. The finish on the neck is a very light lacquer. Not sticky in the slightest.

I feel fortunate to have both of these guitars. I used to have quite a few more guitars, but I only ever played the Jazzmasters. Over a long, laborious period of time I sold everything I didn't play and first purchased the shell pink JM -- ordered to my specs, actually. Then, as I sold more guitars I was eventually able to purchase the daphne blue one. I also have the aforementioned '62 AVRI and a mystic seafoam American Pro, but these two get most of the play. I also have a '62 Tele Custom (black, double-bound) and a Vintera strat, but I haven't seen them in over a year. I think they're hiding in their cases.
