It's been a while since I've been on this site, and I was just cruising around it and figured I'll show off this Fender Jazzmaster that I built for those that care. By built, I mean assembled out of parts. I started with a body and neck that I found on ebay.

I had to route out the pickup cutouts for humbuckers.

The whole cavity was lined in copper.

Here I am wiring it up. You can see my hand drawn wiring diagram here. The roller pots above the pickups cut out a coil of each one of the pickups so I can go from the full dual coil to full single coil and anywhere inbetween. The two position switch on the top horn switches between the normal tone capacitor and a distortion circuit.

I cut out stock Jazzmaster pickup covers to install the humbuckers. It's got a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and an overwound Gibson PAF for the neck position pickup. This guitar flat out SCREAMS!

Here's the finished product.

That's a Fender Japan anodized gold pickguard and it wasn't cheap either (that's not counting the $40 I spent on a USA spec one trying to get that one to work). It was around $120, but they won't ship to the United States. So, I paid I don't know how much to ship it to a friend in Okinawa. Then I had him ship it to me.
