Here are most of my Jazzmasters currently. I have some others I love too, but only so many can fit on the wall.....

I think we need an updated family portrait for 2021, did you ever manage to get that room cleared you were talking about last year?

It is pretty clear. A video would be easier for the room instead of one picture though.

Wow, I could live in that room. Do you find that you tend to play more of your homebrew builds or the unmodified factory guitars?

I used to really dislike the guitars that I made. I couldn't (and still cannot) get them to look as perfect as a factory guitar. I do it all by hand and with rattle cans in my garage so perfection isn't really something I can get. I have grown to prefer my own builds though. When I get a new guitar lately that is factory (whether I change the pickups or guard or something) they just feel like an ordinary guitar. Nothing really interesting. My guitars I have put the time into painting and or shielding and wiring feel more special to me than they did. I really prefer the necks I have finished myself. I think only two OSG people have guitars that I finished the neck myself and they both told me they really liked them. One even swapped out a factory neck for mine. A lot of the factory necks have a Trump orange look to them or are white and untinted. I They feel like they have a super thick coating and are sticky. I probably only put like 5-10 wiped on layers of finish on the necks I do so they are smooth and protected from moisture, but still feel like wood. My bodies are like that too. Since I don't lay a ton of finish on the body, they still feel like they are made of wood to the touch. I think that is something I really enjoy about the guitars I have made. Also I do a way neater job with my shielding paint and my wiring work is really good. I use Tusq nuts so my builds rarely ever have any nut sticking or pinging issues that sometimes the cheaper factory nuts do.

There is something special about choosing all the parts that are going on a guitar. I know ever detail I put into a guitar and I pick them for a reason. For that, I like mine better. That is why even my $2000 plus guitars are upstairs in cases or on the wall while my partscasters I made are down with me at my desk to grab easier. Same with my basses by the way. My expensive bass is upstairs while my parts casters are down with me at my desk. I found the things I love most and put them all together with my builds making guitars I can't get otherwise without taking a ton of stuff off and drilling more holes and still having a body that feels like plastic and a neck that feels dipped in plastic.

Hope that makes sense. Nothing against the high end guitars. They sound nice, but they don't feel like my stuff to me and the feeling matters to me more than it used to.

My main guitar is a partsmaster so I completely understand that feeling, my backup isn't a partsmaster but it is a custom order one-off so it also feels like mine.

I don't get the fetishisation that guitar manufacturers seem to have for gloopy plasticky feeling lacquer on guitar bodies and necks, I get that it's cheaper and more streamlined from a production point of view but they just feel awful in your hands. I've never bought a guitar that didn't have a satin neck.
