    Always wanted a Jazzmaster and a while back concluded I’d like one of the American Vintage Thin Skin 65’s Wildwood ordered up in ‘17.

    Only a handful of colors and have read they ordered 50 of each.

    Don’t seem to want to budge on new prices and used ones haven’t popped up often and color wise I seemed set on this, Charcoal Frost Metallic.

    Dude up north decided to part with one he describes as mint and was close to what I was willing to give so I low balled a bit on my offer, paying homage to my fathers birth year and he accepted.


    He also states;
    “Only change is that now has a Johnny Marr Jaguar case. Looks so much better than the stock black. All case candy included - As new.“

    Couple shots from the verb of the actual guitar with some pics and verbage from Wildwood.

    Congrats! I have always wanted a Jazzmaster, but never got around to it. The Wildwood guitars are usually high-quality builds. I am very jealous, your new guitar pushes ALL my buttons! Some subtle guitar-porn pics would be much appreciated when you get a chance.

    Yes Sir, me in a nutshell as well and thanks, looking very forward to her. What’re you waiting on, we ain’t gettin any younger! Ha!

    Coming out of the Twin Cities so hopefully weather won’t cause too much delay.

    I’ve got a week off coming up beginning Wednesday and plan on some re arranging and once she arrives and we’ve consummated will take some show off and tell pictures just for you.

    In the mean time here’s a few stock shots of the case which looks real cool to me, and a link to our Colorado Brothers page who ordered these little jewels up with more nice pics.

    Never had a Fender with a rosewood board.

    8E3F9D7F-344B-4870-B1CE-7CFBD7343886.jpeg wow, I like it! I have Thurston moore sig. Jazzmaster. I never liked signature models but this one, the moment i tried it was a keeper. I like simplicity, great pickups and great finish.

    Badazz, and with killer pickups. Used one on the Bay pushin 3K. Even a tighter radius, had her since '11?

    Thanks Panhead, I definately will. I've got a couple G&G's and like them alot.

    Thanks Mark. Believe it or not it was you who really put the Jag/Jazz bug back in my ear several years ago so when you think about just cost me a couple large...:)

    Very cool and good to hear. LA to Croatia. Love to hear the story. Looks like a beautiful country.

    Big thanks Larry!!

    Congrats sir,cool geet that!:cool:

    I too have always wanted a Jazzmaster and recently i've been intrigued by Jags too.
    The only thing that seems to be stopping me is that my playing is so rooted in the blues thing,i know i know,ya can anything on any guitar,but ya know what i mean.:oops:

    Think i'll still get one though ,or maybe 2 if ya include the Jag, further on up the road like!;)
