Weren't folks just saying that walnut finishes have passed on? Well, here's a new one!

I say good for Elvis.

He may not have taken the world by storm with licks but he definitely is a talent to be recognized.

I'm unaware of a more prolific writer.

Damn. I don't care about the status of walnut finishes, that looks sweet.

Oh yeah -- I just bought an AVRI 62. Oops. :(

I don't understand why Fender can't have a decent non-AV series Jazzmaster that isn't a signature model. The guitar looks okay, but this is silly marketing, in my opinion.

That looks cool, but I'd prefer the Fiesta red w/ tortoise guard he
used, back when.

I've been Jonesin' for a JM for a while now, and this ain't helping! Looks cool!
Now if they come out with a Nels Cline signature JM I'm gonna' wind 'up having to rob a bank!:worried

Vastly underrated and underappreciated player and writer. I saw him with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra which did a symphony he wrote, and eventually he, Steve Nieve, and a bassist came out and rocked with the orchestra. Pretty cool.

They did, although the color was discontinued in '07. You can still find them -- I had one and foolishly sold it, then, realizing the error if my ways, waited & grabbed one when I could afford it. It was the second I came across in my search, so they are definitely out there.

CIJ Jags & JMs show up on eBay on a regular basis. They're still in production, though not available (directly ;)) in the US. Of course, you're (at the very least) going to need to swap out the pickups for it to actually sound like a JM, so you'll need to count that in, pricewise.

What pickups should be used? I understand Mike Einziger of Incubus puts Duncans in his JM reissues. Are there any other "authentic" pickups?

Thanks for the info! I actually did have a passing thought about trying to build one, too.
