I have an American Pro Jazzmaster. The V-Mod pickups do NOT sound like Jazzmaster pickups to my ears. I will be changing them. Aside from that, the guitar has everything I'm ever going to want in a Jazzmaster.
This is a stock photo, but I recently traded into a shell pink limited with an all rosewood deep C neck. The neck is fantastic. The V-Mod pickups, however, are not. They don't sound like Jazzmaster pickups to me so I plan to replace them.
There are many budget Jazzmasters out there, but few of them really sound like a Jazzmaster.
I recently traded into an American Professional 1 Jazzmaster and I'm going to have to swap the pickups as the V-Mod that came stock just don't cut it.
I recently received an Am. Pro Jazzmaster 1 LE in shell pink with an all rosewood neck. Just wanted to warn anyone that these V-Mod pickups do NOT sound like a Jazzmaster!
I've tried 10 gauge Earnie Ball rounds and today I put on a set of 10 gauge TI flats. Still no go. I'm going to work on...
