New Jazzmaster

I have been really wanting to get a JM for some time now and I finally found a good one for a killer price.

Whats wrong with this picture?

Re: New Jazzmaster

Yup.

I got a pair of Curtis Novak "Jazzmaster PAF style humbuckers", and they kick ass.

Highlights:
  • No noise
  • Thicker tone, somewhere between a Tele and Les Paul.
  • Retained the JM vibe
  • Clean, they really sparkle
  • They overdrive nicely

This guitar is a blast. I keep waiting for the honeymoon phase to wane, but every time I pick it up I am seriously stoked.

The JM is a great complement to my Les Paul.

Re: New Jazzmaster

Do I also see a Mastery bridge in there?

I'm wanting a Jazzmaster again after I foolishly got rid of my MIJ one last year. Might try and get one of the new Squier J Mascis models. One of those and some Novak pickups (Was thinking some regular JM ones or Wide-range 'buckers) would still cost less than a Classic Player JM.

Yes, there is a Mastery bridge there. It's a solid bridge. I don't have any buzzing issues, or strings popping out of the saddles. However just for kicks, I am considering a mustang bridge. The Mastery doesn't have the same "floating" movement as the the stock fender bridges, and this translates to popping noises, much like you hear at the nut while tuning, when I use the tremolo.

Edit: Re Novak Pick Ups, mine are killer. I would purchase others from Curtis.

Yes, MXR Phase 90. I really like that peddle. It's a staple along with Fuzz and Delay.

I recall experimenting with its position when I first got that pedal, and if my memory serves correct, I placed it ahead of my fuzz and overdrive pedals because I preferred the way the phase 90 sounded when combined with Fuzz or OD when itís placed ahead. When I use a what, I put it ahead of the P90. I have head folks say that they periodically rearrange their pedal arrangements simply to get different sounds.

I am currently experimenting with treble bleed circuits in the Jazzmaster. I picked up a few 100K and 130K resistor and a few 0.001 mf and .0022 mf capacitors and I am experimenting with different combinations both in series and parallel. Itís wild how much impact different circuits have on the tone and volume controls. Point being, experiment.
