    Hei everyone!

    Looks like a good week. First the lap steel and now i found a Squier Vista series Jagmaster for about 250$ - a really great price. It looks like the seller doesn’t know what he have. I meet the guy next week for pick it up and of course i will show some detailed pictures!

    Cheers!

    I hope it didn’t cease ;)
    Actually, there is a musicmaster bass in black i spotted in germany for a good price, about 185$ - sadly the seller don’t want to send it to Switzerland (CITES would be no problem shipping from Germany to Switzerland). Maybe you know someone from germany who can grab that one and send it to you?

    I'm a simple man. I see sunburst and tortoise and I press like.

    Gratz!

    Here she is.

    All original, mint condition and the frets are looking like untouched. The built quality is amazing.
    Serial number A006705 and neck date April '97.
    Polished the frets, oiled the fretboard and adjusted the riders. Neck was perfectly straight.
    The neck feels amazing, very close if not exactly like my '98 CIJ Jaguar, love it.
    The pickups sounding great in all positions, very clean and the right amount of punch, niiice. The guitar is fitted with cheap cute pots, but as long i like the sound i see no problems there.

    Below some pictures.

    Cheers and have a nice time!

    A friend of mine has one of these. Were they all Vista series? Or just some, maybe a later offering that was similarly styled?

    So shiny! I love the grain on the fretboard. Body is really nice too.

    What a score!

    Ok.. just so I know what to ask my friend. He is just a casual player and not into such details. I did see a fuzzy facebook pic of his and the tuners do not seem to be split-shaft Kluson style.. so there's that! He has said it's a great guitar though (which we all know).

    Thanks!

    Exactly, later ones had the bullet adjustment. Wondering why they changed. Like it better without the bullet.
