Not mine, but I saw this on Reverb today and thought of this thread. Seems like the fanciest Jazzblaster ever.

Also interesting that a Ron Thorn offset build doesn't have the new bridge he designed.

Is that a maple body?
It's korina. And apparently it sold (in under 24-hours).

CN702066, Fender Custom Shop January 15, 1998, COA signed by John Page.

Fiesta Red nitrocellulose (no poly undercoat), gold hardware. Birdseye maple neck, 30 degrees pickguard bevel. Prototype pickups. This guitar was ordered by Dave's Guitar Shop March 25 1997, two years before the first official JM reissue, 1962 AVRI.

This has become the guitar of my life. Still close to mint condition. I use it on stage, though carefully so.

That's a gorgeous guitar and really cool that it's from the era when there were no production JMs.

Thanks! Indeed a great guitar. According to the guy I bought it from, this particular guitar served as a prototype for the AVRI model, but I haven't been able to find conclusive proof of that. But it is very likely that this guitar (and a possible sibling I heard of from another forum member just the other day) is the first vintage spec Jazzmaster built after the discontinuation in 1980.

Agreed. Real piece of history. The gold hardware really pops too.

Saw this cool little Mustang-esque offset on the Fender Custom Shop Instagram today!

Never seen one of these custom vibrato units before, looks like a perfect match to the RSD bridge? 🧐

(Sorry I don’t have a photobucket or anything, if anyone wants to throw the images up. 😋)

Pretty sure that’s a Ron Thorn designed trem unit. He uses them on his california special guitars

Yeah, it's a cool one -- pretty much a Strat trem under the hood, but with the extra string length and different pivot that's more akin to a low-profile Mustang.

Some new pictures of my Fender Custom Shop Jazzmaster 59 (Namm 2017) in desert sand finish.
I have added Halon vibrato which is a great improvement over the original one (it was really the only weak point of this guitar).
This guitar is the lightest JM I have ever played (around 7lbs). A pleasure !

This is just :w00t: ! Absolutely striking - I don’t know how you’d play anything else if you had that. :-*
