Fantastic guitar!

Great buying experience! CME does a tremendous job checking the guitar over and making sure it’s totally right. This Fender short run exclusive was exactly what I was looking for! It does what a Jazzmaster is supposed to do … once you take the time to dial in your setup! The setup is a bit tricky for sure because everything has to be balanced and intonated just so to prevent the strings from buzzing on the adjustment screws OR on the bridge itself. It also helps to have the absolute tiniest amount of relief possible in the neck and to raise the bridge and angle it to the sweet spot for ideal string vibration and a high enough break angle to anchor the strings within the slots. Once you do these things and set the pickup height, the guitar truly sings, rocks, plays great, and stays completely in tune, even with serious tremolo arm use! My pickups are set to spec: 3.5 mm on the bass side and 3.2 mm on the treble side. If you aren’t comfortable doing a detailed setup, be prepared to locate a professional. I have set up MANY Fenders so I was able to do it myself in a couple hours of tinkering. The 65 pickups sound amazing! Cleans are shimmery and huge. Dirty sounds are fat and ringing. Perfect for indie and shoegaze styles. You can also roll off the tone for a darker, blues or jazz lead tone and, unlike the original jazzmaster bridge, the strings will stay PUT and allow you to pick hard and bend as much as you like even with 9 gauge. No need for a rhythm circuit in my opinion. This wiring setup keeps it simple, lowers the cost, and still gives you the full Jazzmaster experience. Buy one before they are gone! Love it!

Best Fender I've Played Under $1k

Wanted a JM for lugging around, but didn't like the strat-style on the Am Performer. I finally caught a glimpse of this one and thought it would be great. It does play well out of the box, but you should also be aware of the common issues with vintage-style JM bridges before you buy one - especially if you plan to use the tremolo. Once set-up, I was shocked at how well this thing just feels in my hands. The satin neck is a must for me, and the Pau Ferro isn't bad (though I do prefer Rosewood). I'm writing this after about a year and a half of owning, and the paint is holding up great for an MIM. Was hesitant on the blue with mint green pickguard, but it really gives off this kind of grey hue inside the Ice Blue as well.
