Fender '59 Jazzmaster Thinskin Reissue
Last one I’ll post. . . One of two Troy Post built guitars I have . . . both homages to the Doug Irwin “Wolf” that Garcia used. Black walnut/poplar “hippie sandwich” body, same pickups that Jerry used, brass nut.
Never saw one. Gorgeous!
Yes, I fell so hard for it I ordered another, same “sandwich,” but neck through and set up with Black Diamond Jazz strings (heavy!) and high action and three different hum buckers that have a jazzy sound (L’il '59. '59 and Air Norton). I love the sound it gets.
Very nice but check this one out!
Was given to a friend by Jeff Beck, he played it on tour between 2008-2012
Cool. I’m not a bit Jeff Beck fan but that’s cool.
I can’t belive he just gave it to him it is priceless !
that’s the guitar he used when he played with the Rolling Stones on the 2010 tour.
Got tuh have a B3 in the mix.
I have people in my life that say the B3 reminds them of roller rink music. I always say, if I’m playing Jimmy Smith or Jack McDuff (born in one of the cities I attended college: Champaign, IL), what rink? I want to go! I can still roller skate!
There are so many sound selections. And it depends on how one plays it. I never hear “roller rink” when I listen to who you mentioned or Joey Defrancesco or Dr Lonnie Smith or…
This was my first electric ‘shit’ guitar; a Teiso ‘Top Twenty’ from Woolworths. In fact it was anything but shit, since I bought it from an enthusiast who had extensively reworked the neck and it had the best action of any guitar I have ever played, bar none. I used it happily for nearly 20 years until it was stolen in the mid-80’s. The tremolo arm is missing from the picture.
Talk about a “pos” guitar. This was made approx the same year as my Strat, 1961. It’s hilarious, “masonite” body with cheesy vinyl wrapped edges. The bridge is a piece of wood the a metal rod hammered into it. It rests on screws that were bored thru the bridge and the bridge is free to move (and scratch) along the top plate. It has two brads nailed into the top at the point where intonation was supposed to be “correct”. The pickup is truly just a coil/magnet pair stuck into two lipstick tubes that were purchased from a defunct cosmetics mfr.
It plays surprisingly well, sounds horrible but makes a great instrument for a blues tune or two.
I bought it around 1968 for $27. and three bottles of Schlitz.
