    are you going to add contours to that body, or leave it as is? I've been trying to get someone to make me a "flat", double-bound jazzmaster body for the past three years...

    My Danocaster Jazzmaster .... Jazzocaster :huh ...whatever...

    It is a wonderful recreation of a vintage Jazzmaster :banana

    FWIW - I also own a Fano JM6 ..a great and unique instrument, but other than the body-style it is really not similar to the classic Jazzmaster at all.

    Klira made some cool jazzmasterish guitars (Klira Kentucky) in the early 70's. They can be had for a song on german ebay and are pretty good guitars once you replace the frets which were made out of some really soft alloy.
