Hi All. Sorry I hardly ever 'speak' on here- but get me on guitars & well......LOL. Nice to see some of the more 'aquired taste' Fenders on here :-).I LOVE Jag's- probably because I have small hands (?). Here's my '63. It's all original, except for an old body overspray & the felt on the mute. I'm not a 'guitar snob' btw- it's a working instrument- not an ornament. I also have a black US '62 reissue Jag on reserve, which sounds just as good, but the neck is NOTHING LIKE the old one. I have nothing against the Japanese reissues- I've owned several & they were always beautifully built. Don't know what they're like now, but the pickups used to be really microphonic.

I have a variety of basses from many manufacturers, but I've always preferred Fenders. They just naturally have the sound I'm looking for. Here are a few of the Fenders I try to keep from simply being wall art in my rec room. They all see regular live action.


Fender Precision American Deluxe


Fender 5 string Jazz Bass American Deluxe in Blue Burst


Fender Jazz American '75 Reissue in Natural Ash (currently my #1 ax)


Fender CIJ '51 Precision Reissue


Fender '69 Telecaster Bass (not original paint or bridge)

MrsHop => BEAUTIFUL!
jazzbass => Lot's of beauties!

I've got a 5-string Jazz Deluxe (vintage blonde?), a Fat Tele Deluxe and a US-1 Strat all of which I really enjoy. Oh yeah, there's a Squire Tele that lives next to the bed - others all live in the studio. Although the Jazz does make it to many gigs, I feel somewhat sad to admit that a Washburn 6-string is actually my primary gig bass for a number of various reasons.

Happy playing!

Peace,
Mr DJA

Fender has a bunch of "new" Telecasters also.

[www.fender.com]

I'd like to testdrive the 50's Hot Rod with a Wide Range neck Humbucker. maybe it is nice.

The new FWRH is actually a standard PAF type humbucker with a wider casing.

I know. that's why I said I'd like to testdrive it - maybe it sounds as good as this Mexico Deluxe.

what i don't get is why Fender doesn't push & re-issue their own designed CuNiFe WRH. they'd have lots of takers I suppose.



The CuNiFe material is expensive (it needs extra heat treatments) and difficult to mill and process, so the pickup will be too expensive to be a run of the mill pickup.

I actually want a Jazzmaster but as I'm lefthanded my only option is getting a Fender Japan one.

How is the quality of those Japanese issues these days ?

Cheers,
Jimmy

The quality of my CIJ Mustang is pretty solid.
