Anyone here play Jazzmasters? I just got my newest Chapin on Saturday, a JBird (basically a one-off), Bill's take on a Jazzmaster. I'd never played a Jazzmaster before, but hey, it was dark, he was so big, I had no choice but to buy it! Played it out the first night I had it, and OH MY!!! What a cool damn guitar! Doesn't really sound like anything else, very present sounding, clear, but not piano-like because the pickups really drive the amp hard. Don't quite know what to make of it, but I really liked it with the blues band and the Dr. Z 6545 and the Mudhoney! Bill described Jazzmasters as "tweaky" - lots of TLC needed to keep them in tune, playing right, there are weird mechanisms in the bridge to drive you nuts, but even so, the sound was just incredible! I'm a big fan - just wondering if anyone else has been bitten by the bug too?
