I'll be the owner of one of these shortly. I've read a lot of criticism online about these, mainly to do with the fact there are humbuckers in a Jazzmaster.
I had a Blacktop Jaguar which is a great workhorse. I just found the shorter scale a bit odd to deal with, and noticeable around the 7th fret in particular. Anyways, this Jazzmaster should satisfy my humbucking needs.
Well that'll suit me fine. I have a standard CIJ Jazzmaster, and love the feel of it, so something with a similar feel, but with humbuckers will give me my humbucking kick.
I can't afford a Lee Ranaldo sig! Based on my own one, it looks like I'll have to change the bridge on the HH one. I put a tuneomatic into my CIJ one, and it seems to have done the trick. So that will be one thing I'll look at.
The coil splitting option in the HH model isn't something I'll use a whole lot, so might replace the pickups eventually. Maybe a tip to wide range humbuckers, ala Ranaldo's Jazzblaster.
I've seen Creamerys recommended.
Any other Jazzmaster HH players here?
