This is a new style Offset Body system. Sure, we've stayed pretty true to the original 1962 Specs, but we've routed these to accept ANY pickup configuration. We know most modern players have no use for finicky tone wheels and the other antique stuff, so we've cut these to accept a toggle or 5 way switch, Volume, Tone and output jack. We even have a perfectly matched series of pickguards for you to completely customize your build with very little work. We've cut this body to accept Stratocaster style tremolos. What a great system! Strat Neck, Strat Trem on a big powerful offset boddy! Our matching pickguards are cut to EXACTLY fit these bodies and exactly fit ANY of our strat style trems- even the big block Steel and Brass units.These are cut from nice dry figured Swamp Ash, and we pay extra for the very best, driest, hardest varities. An excellent and toneful body is what you have here. The beautiful finish is hand rubbed catalyzed urethane, custom matched to the correct vintage Ditzler colors.While you CAN use this with standard Jazzmaster parts, you will find our matching pickguards and parts are a PERFECT fit, and highly recommended.We think this body compares VERY favorably to bodies sold in the $200-$400 range.
