    Finally! I think it will remain thus for the forseeable future.

    It's what my tele wasn't which is a compromise I can live with.

    cheers, Mark.

    Hey, love the decal I am going for mine to be named the ~CaseyKat~

    Trying to sort the scale length out.
    Mine seems to be a coupla mm out on the neck and a considerable amount from 12th to saddle. I am not sure if its simply because the saddle cavity has so much movement in it?
    Cool progress.

    Just take the measurement from the inside of the nut to the saddle- you want 648mm - I usually just make sure that the high E sits comfortable at that and all the other strings have adjustment back from that point for intonation. You'll have a two post bridge, take the centre screws out of the receivers and wrap masking tape around them till they fit snugly in the post holes, then you can dummy fit the neck and bridge to check it more accurately. The JM kits are pretty much fine for scale length and the post holes a pre drilled anyway. It's only on kits like the TL where you have to drill the bridge holes, or the set neck kits where the neck needs to be accurately located for glueing that your really need to be super careful about scale length. Certainly worth checking, but I'm sure its fine.

    Thanks Sonic ...for the comment, and timely advice for Casey.
    I was about to start posting my answer but you beat me to it.
    Yes, I think the JM-1's have been in production for yonks so it's odd that scale length would be an issue.


    Casey (hey great name) I've altered the headstock logo slightly since that shot.
    Now that this guitar has evolved through several iterations, I feel 'jazzmaster' no longer fits the description.

    cheers, Mark.

    P.S. I was working on a demo for this guitar until I realised I have already done one

    That looks awesome, reminds me of my old Fender 70's P Bass in the colour, nice choice.
    The pick guard looks awesome. and I love the pickup arrangement.
    Most of all, I love the carpet, it looks like you staged it

    So was the decal a transfer with a clear background that you cleared over? was it that simple?

  8. #148
    Hi Casey. It's clear laser decal. I printed the black outline in reverse. Painted the silver and then applied on the headstock.
    I then clear coated a few times over it and then sanded it flat.
    BTW I finally got round to a video demo.



    cheers, Mark.

    Nice one. I do enjoy a good pit bull sound demo.

    Thanks DarkMark.
    I'm certainly looking forwards to an excellent 'Annylation' demo.
    I'm sure it will be an inspiring spectacular.

    cheers, Mark.
