It is possible that longing for something is better than actually having it. I’ve heard it said that satisfaction is the death of desire.

Théremin : Beethoven Symphonie n°7
A shot of the custom Fender Jazzmaster I made for Skye Skjelset (Walkmen, Fleet Foxes) last year. This guitar boasts a crazy array of pickups, with two Lollar JMs in the usual places, a DeArmond Gold Foil in the middle (loud and incredible!) and a custom Curtis Novak Lipstick behind the bridge. Easily the most versatile guitar I’ve used, the sheer number of tones one can achieve from this one makes for a guitar that always surprises, always delivers.
And that BTB pickup is amazing. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but picking behind the bridge calls out the most penetrating, eery ghost tones ever. With the bridge and BTB on, you get chords and crazy overtones, and with that Gold Foil on your amp and pedals are pushed to the max, resulting in a fuzzed-out fever dream of chaos. LOVE THIS
Grace turns 20 today!
And what do I want people to get from the music? Whatever they want. Whatever you like. Somebody asked me what I wanted to do. I just said I wanted to…just to give back to it what it’s given me. And to meet all the other people that are doing it…just to be in the world, really.

Happy 20th birthday to the greatest album to ever Grace the world! We love you, Jeff!
What a gorgeous example of Lake Placid Blue! Not as saturated or dark as some others, this Fender Thin Skin Jazzmaster has the hallmarks of a lightly faded vintage finish, giving this guitar the appearance of years beyond its age. Lollar pickups and a Mastery Bridge allow this guitar to straddle vintage and modern eras with ease, and take a look at that flame! Holy crap! It’s not often you’ll see a newer Fender with such a highly figured neck!
that neck is the stuff of dreams
