Sooo, I spotted a mint Fender American Original 60 Jazzmaster in beautiful Ocean Turquoise for about $1250 (without case). It's mounted with 12s which felt kinda stiff when I played it at the music shop the other day. It's a gorgeous guitar and very well built but the JM design feels a bit bulky (I'm 5.6 ft tall). The lower frets are farther than on most guitars (a bit like an SG in that regard). It sounds really good, I even like the rhythm circuit, but there is actually only one hum cancelling position, which is necessary in my studio because of huge sound interference from train cables outside the building. Nice smooth tremolo action, not sure how it would handle lighter gauge strings (how low can one go with JMs btw?). That's it, I just wanted to share and see if you guys have experimented with Jazzmasters and can offer advice. Have a jazzy day masters of the Gretsch interweb!
