I have been reading about the Squier VM Jazzmasters over on the Surf Guitar forum. This is giving me major GAS. I have been GAS free since I got my Agile AL (LP copy) last spring. As I have mentioned in the past, I bought a new SB Fender Jazzmaster right after HS graduation in 1965. Great guitar! However, sold it in the early 70's. Needed cash raising four young sons alone. Have regretted that ever since. Squier has come out with a couple similar models in the past, but either the color was wrong, or they didn't have the trem, etc. I want sunburst and the trem. I know they don't have the mute and the trem lock. I can live without that. Never used them on the Fender. These new Jazzmasters are as close as I can get without buying the $800 Fender one. Just playing at home or with friends doesn't justify that price. But, $300? That is do-able. They get good reviews over on the Surf Guitar forum, just looking for opinions from you guys here, the real Squier guys, that have one or have tried one. This is really bad gas!
