A proper Jazzmaster at a killer price

Mine arrived looking beautiful but had a lot of hum/noise and I figured it had something to do with the pickups or 1 meg pots. I opened it up to shield it and the bridge ground wire was never soldered to the ground wire on the pot. After soldering it I plugged it back in and it was silent. I went from thinking it was ok to being my favorite guitar at the moment. This guitar looks, sounds and plays great and its priced very low too. It nails that classic Jazzmaster tone and does what a Jazzmaster should do. Before you jump into the Jazzmaster pool understand that these guitars require tinkering with. Saddle rattle can be fixed by adjusting the screws on the saddles. They tend to loosen and tighten when changing strings and if they're even slightly uneven they will rattle. Another way to fix this is to shim the neck so there's a slight backbow to it like a Les Paul. This will increase the break angle and put more pressure on the bridge preventing rattle. Using 11's or 12's helps too but the nut on these ones is perfect for 10-46. The 4th position is actually very usable and I find myself using this position more than I thought I would. This is a great guitar at a great price and CME is the gold standard in online purchases. Besides the ground wire mine came set up perfectly and almost in tune. The ground wire was never even tinned so I know it was never attached but again, it took me 5 minutes and 0 dollars to fix. I'm sure had I complained they would have fixed it for me. I bought the Silver Blue Metallic. The Shell Pink was definitely my favorite color but I wasn't secure enough to buy a pink guitar.

Excellent Jazzmaster

Really happy with this Jazzmaster. I'd say 4.5/5, factoring in some bonus points for the color scheme and tone/pickups. Met or exceeded my various expectations relating to finish, feel, and tone. Beautiful guitar. Pao Ferro looks great in its pastel streaks, like a light rosewood with the tight grain of ebony. The pickups sound fantastic. Fat, bright, raw, versatile. Unique. Great with fuzz even. No need to swap them for something better. Two great combo settings (series/parallel). Not tons of sustain, but different saddles or bridges can dramatically increase sustain if that's what you're after. Saddles work fine, though they buzz of course, but there are many upgrade options for JM saddles and bridges. Would've preferred rolled fretboard edges, but it plays well. The "modern C" neck seems to have a slight v to it, at least compared to the modern C on the Vintera or Noventa...not sure why, but it feels fine. Kudos to CME and Fender.
