Your thoughts don't make it reality...just your opinion.
In that particular iteration, yes.
All super expensive Masterbuilts.
They called it "The Watt"! Nels bought his Jazzmaster from Mike Watt. Obviously it's a copy of his guitar.
A Fender Jazzmaster, issued by Fender, is indeed a well known guitar.
I should have said good relicing.
Right back at you.
We're talking about one particular guitar here. I thought that was pretty clear.
IMO, the only good relicing comes from actual time and usage. Nels' Jazzmaster looks the way it does because he plays guitar like a rabid monkey on crack and has for years. He beats that thing to ****. That being said, I'm not a fan of Nels in the least and really don't think FMI thought they could move more units by copying his guitar. Again, just my opinion. Who knows for sure.
So if it was a customer order... should Fender not make it because there's one that's kinda like it, even though that's what the customer wanted?
This guy Nels isn't the victim he's portraying himself to be. He's not a signed artist, and he doesn't have a signature model that represents what he's bitching about. And based on his attitude, he probably won't get one.
He made what his own...the Fender Jazzmaster, issued by Fender?
The "Fender copied someone else by issuing their own guitar" argument isn't holding up.
Yes, the Fender Jazzmaster, issued by...wait for it...
What strikes me is just how little eight large truly gets you with a shop like FCS. Looks like we could have tried just a wee bit harder here.
Again, even if it’s inspired by, do they need to get srv family permission before sticking a black guard on a strat too?
Meh. Much ado about nothing imo.
That particular guitar. We're talking about one particular guitar. Cline reliced through years of playing.
That’s likely retail. And it IS a master built
is anyone paying more for it because it looks like his? or are they just buying a relic'd jazzmaster in the most common color combo that fender ever did for jazzmasters?
A black guard on a Strat? No, but if they reliced it to look like #1 it might get some attention. I agree about much ado over nothing. Cline had good reason for his post. Not sure about anyone else.
For real? They called it The Watt? That's just blatant. And here's a better shot.

For a place primarily dedicated to guitars and music, I am shocked by how disparaging some of the posters are. Since joining Wilco, they’ve only sold over a million albums, had 4 albums chart in the top 15, and maintained a highly regarded jazz solo career.
I guess the difference between some of us, is that when we learn of a new-to-us musician, we don’t immediately sh1t on them, instead we listen to their work and learn. IMO, that’s the easiest way to be less ignorant.
