Description

Our goal with our Custom Shop Jazzmasters was to make the absolute best sounding and playing JMs out there. Seems pretty simple right? Combining a mix of vintage specs, and modern mods we think you’ll agree that me hit the mark. Our 1970 “CME Spec” Jazzmaster has a 7.25” radius, and a rift sawn maple neck. The magic really happens under the guard with the combination of a 250k volume pot and our Chicago Specials. Based on a set of 1961 Jazzmaster pickups, George Blanda helped us craft our set to have higher output in the neck position than the bridge. The bridge pickup is slightly overwound giving it a smooth and round presence, while the neck pickup is moderately overwound giving it a huge bottom end with with round highs. Both Alnico 5 pickups are potted in shellac to give them a wide and open dynamic range, and wound with 42 gauge enamel wire. When you put everything together, you get the most balanced Jazzmaster on the market! “Chicago Special” Jazzmaster pickups Custom set modeled after CME’s favorite 1961 Jazzmater AlNiCo 5 magnets 42 gauge enamel wire for round highs Potted in shellac for open wide range frequency response BRIDGE: Slightly overwound for high end punch but still still smooth and round NECK: Moderately overwound for huge bottom end but with clear, round highs Truss Rod: 17.563 x .875 Neck Head Thickness: 0.590″ Neck Scoop: 60 Fingerboard Inlays: Black Blocks Side Dot: Micarta White 3/32″ Fret Wire: Jescar FW50085 Number of Frets: 21 Fingerboard Radius: 7.25″ Neck Back Shape: 1.969 “U” Neck Plate: R Serial Vintage Relic Back Plate & Trem Cover: None Tuner Keys: Schaller F Key Relic Pickguard: Jazzmaster 3-Ply Black Nitro Relic Pickup Neck: “Chicago Special” Jazzmaster Neck Pickup Bridge: “Chicago Special” Jazzmaster Bridge Pickup Covers: Black Control Knobs: 65 Jazzmaster Black Witch Hat w/Black Letters Volume Pot: 250k Tone Pot: 1meg
