i have a classic player Sunburst Jazzmaster and i'm embarrassed to play it live because it's such a fucking meme guitar now.

i really do like how it feels and how it sounds though. i used it for recording.

Can I post my Jap Deluxe Strat?

What do you guys think of it?

PurpleCharger

@Nude_Bikergirl
Not as good as a MIM with new parts senpai :^)

memes aside, must be good but looks like any other typical Strat, if that's good it depends on the player, I don't mind to be honest.

I want an Elite Strat, the compound neck is a beauty.

Same I haven't touched my offset guitars in years. The only reason I won't sell them is because they're useful when I want a surf/western kind of sound

Why? I'm actually kind of interested to buying the guitar in OP's pic.

I'm just not sure if I would get used to thick strings, and I wonder how they would feel like to bend it on a jazzmaster.

Fender MIJ Telecaster 62' Reissue

@CouchChiller
@likme
don't be such cucks, stop letting the stupid shit we say on here influence you
offset guitars tend to be played by twinks but that doesn't mean you have to be one too or be scared of playing one because you might get associated with one.

still, I like it.

60 reissue

How's the neck? I played the TL71 before, and the neck seems pretty thick, but I didn't notice the difference in fret size even though I play jumbo frets. Also I'm surprised that the 21 fret is easy to reach.

The glossy finish makes it less smooth than satin, but isn't sticky at all.

literally every fucking dude in my city plays a cp jazzmaster and i'm sick of them so i'm not going to contribute.

@Spamalot
very thick, but suits the 7.25" radius
frets are pretty small, and it has pretty good reach

Glossy finish looks nicer imo, not nearly as fast as satin though. I don't play fast though so it's a fair trade-off for me.

@RavySnake
fair enough

just know that, as much as they get made fun of, and although they are far from perfect, they aren't actually "meme" guitars and have seen significant usage by great players from all kinds of genres
but yeah, I know what you mean
they attract all the biggest shitters and faggots like this guy @Harmless_Venom
nowadays

you know you can worry about looks while having guitars that still function to your needs, right?

guitars are pretty much fashion accessories anyways, if you have the ability to fuss over it then why not

I have my intonation set to be as accurate as possible on the 12th fret, I read that that's how you do it. But when I play chords all the way up at the 24th fret I can hear beating and it's all messed up. It's on a very cheap guitar, is the fretwork just inaccurate or did I screw up intonation somehow?

It's not just on here, Sheeky Forums was actually late to the trend. Around here they peaked with hipsters around 2011, right now every single mainstream indie poser plays one. They're pretty much an indicator if a band will be total shit.

It..it doesn't? You mean I can't lock it and change tuning to my will?

CouchChiller
CouchChiller

@Fried_Sushi
You can change tuning without locking it. The Tremlock just keeps you from being able to bend upwards, you can still use the trem downwards, its only an advantage when you break a string because the rest of the strings won't go out of tune.
