1 tommy59 1 year ago About a year ago, I acquired an oddball Jazzmaster. Most features say J Mascis signature (pickups, neck profile, his autograph on the back of the headstock). But I thought the Mascis model was a Squier, cream finish, gold anodized pickguard. This one is pink, including the face of the headstock, with a tortoiseshell pickguard. Oddest of all, there is a Fender logo, also on the face of the headstock. The rear of the headstock says "Designed and Backed by Fender", and the neck plate says "Squier by Fender". All of which is neither here nor there, since it plays and sounds great. I'm really enjoying it. But the bridge experience is not all one might hope for. When played unplugged, I can hear that there is very little sustain. And the strings jump out of the allthread threads way too easily. I'm hoping y'all have some suggestions for a more satisfying alternative. Thanks in advance for sharing the benefit of your experience.
