JAZZMASTER MAKEOVER

A TOTAL OVERHAUL OF A SWEET JAZZMASTER FROM OUR GOOD FRIEND, CAM, OVER @GIBSUNDAY

Here's what Cam @gibsunday had to say about his newly modded Jazzmaster:

"First, the new look of the Jazzmaster is incredible! I knew it would look different, but I didn’t expect it to feel like getting a new guitar. My totally custom pickguard designed and printed for me was beyond what I could’ve hoped for!

Second, the Lambertones are just unreal! I can’t believe how much clarity those humbuckers have! And I HAVE to give praises to the wiring harness from 920D because I know that only made the CREMAs that much better!

Adding the Mastery Vibrato truly pushes it right over the top! The stock Fender vibrato system was mediocre at its peak, but this new trem system from Mastery is unparalleled!

Finding that you sent me a Mother Mary strap chosen to match the guitar was so dope and such a great choice!

Getting my own Gibsunday custom cables truly was the cherry on top. It was like being handed an entirely new rig. New pickups, new harness, new cables... I was given an entirely new set of incredible sounds to explore and this was made entirely possible by 920D Custom! I can’t say thank you enough!!!"

UPGRADED FROM HEADSTOCK TO VIBRATO

We didn't take any shortcuts when upgrading this Jazzmaster. We wanted to build an absolute dream rig.

First, we upgraded to a Mastery bridge and vibrato. Jazzmasters often have great issues retaining their tuning once someone just thinks about touching the wiggle stick. Mastery has completely changed this. Their gear is made in the USA and is made with such precision that it has eliminated this common issue. After putting these through their paces, we cannot recommend them enough.

We also upgraded the vintage tuners to Gotoh Locking Tuners. These are a great upgrade to any guitar that needs to keep that classic vibe. These make restringing your guitar a much quicker process and they retain true tuning better than stock tuning machines. We absolutely love these here in the shop.

Mother Mary Company was kind enough to send us in a strap that matches this Jazzmaster to send back home to Cam. Mother Mary Company makes some truly sweet straps in a ton of designs. Once we put one on a guitar we instantly saw just how awesome they are. 10/10 would recommend.

CUSTOM PICKGUARD DESIGN

We worked with Cam to design the artwork for his pickguard so it matched the exact vive he was after. Once the design was finalized, we built it from the ground up in our shop. We wanted this Jazzmaster to stand out and be a unique guitar that will turn heads. Some may call this a small thing, but no detail is too small when building some's dream guitar.

UNRIVALED TONE

We were given a set of Lambertone Jazzmaster CREMA Pickups for this build courtesy of Kurtis Lambertone. Like their humbucker predecessor, these Jazzmaster CREMA pickups have an absolutly outstanding sound to them. Their pure, sparkling highs balance wonderfully with this rich, warm low end. No floppy mud in the lower range either. Very tight and well rounded.

We installed these pickups with our vintage style Jazzmaster wiring harness. You won't find a better wiring upgrade for your Jazzmaster anywhere. We use components built specifically for our shop with really tight tolerances so that everything effects the tone exactly how it is intended - not too little, not too much. We cut every wire to the exact length needed, we make sure every solder joint is perfect, and we do it all in our shop in Conway, Arkansas.
