1 Ric12string 1 week ago With apologies to those of you who may have seen this already on Facebook, I purchased an AV '65 Jaguar last summer, but didn't really use it at all because I had always told myself that, if I ever purchased one of these, the first thing that I would do would be to send it back to Curt Wilson to have the headstock painted to match the body. I just got it back about two weeks ago and I must say that Curt did a tremendous job, which is not really any news to anyone who frequents the GDP. But, I find that I now really, really like the guitar even more than before. Those matching headstocks always got me.But, most importantly, the tone of the guitar is just what I have been looking for. I grew up listening to the surf music in Southern California, and particularly Carl Wilson's Jaguar in the Beach Boys. I had the chance to play the Jaguar through a silverface Deluxe Reverb last week and, to my ears, it captures the sound that I have been looking for. The notes decay quickly, like a good surf guitar should, and the tone is what I hear in my head when I think about my early years listening to the radio.So, along with the Jaguar, I also have an AV '65 Jazzmaster that I acquired from another GDP member and I think that I am in Offset Heaven finally.
