1 Surfysonic 1 month ago So...got this in a trade for my Fender AV '52 Roasted Ash Tele. Not missing it as I have 4 other Teles (it's a sickness, I know). Anyhoo, the trade was totally worth it! I can't stop playing this beauty. Funny enough, I've had 2 Fender AV '65 Jazzmasters and I always felt the pickups were a bit too mid-rangey/harsh. The Pure Vintage '65 JM pickups on the Jazz Strat sound outstanding. It's different, it's cool looking, it's sure to annoy purists - what's not to like?!? ...here with Mom & Dad ...and with drunk Uncle Jag... Oh, in case anyone asks - yup, I got the spiffy surf green hardshell Fender case that comes with it.
