I got mine in the beginning of June and I'm still amazed by this guitar. The funny this is that for years I had my eye on a LP Classic, but by the time I have the money they have these instead, which are head and shoulders above any Classic i'd played i recent years. Here are some new shots i took with the pickguard off and with the new knobs and TRC

Thanks Ben. Yeah it's Honeyburst. The pickup covers are RS Guitar Works raw nickel covers. Still the 57' Classics though.:thumb:

I got a JB in my 72 deluxe and it cranks - must sound nice on the trad. Does the jazz have a PAFy sound?
Thats a good way to describe the sound. The Jazz really compliments the JB, particularly when I roll the tone back a little on the JB.
