I've had this for a couple weeks and I really, really love this guitar. Never played a Jazzmaster before I ordered this one . I had always wanted a shell pink guitar but never bought one, so I was looking on MF. I saw a shell pink Strat but I already have 2 Strats and it seemed like alot of money just to get a pink one. I saw the Paranormal Cyclone but it seemed to have alot in common with a Strat. Then I saw this Jazzmaster and pulled the trigger. Plays fine out of the box. I can't find anything wrong with it and I checked . Been playing alot of Sabbath, Maiden, Priest, and Def Leppard which I know isn't what these are known for but it does it really well especially with distortion on the rhythm circuit. Really kinda nails it. And I get a real kick out of switching between the circuits! What a great idea! I'd read alot of concerns about the bridge but this one works just fine. I'll likely leave it totally stock until something needs to be replaced. Again I love it!
