This guitar made it’s way into the store early last year. It is a 1959 Fender Jazzmaster with an anodized gold pickguard. Although 99% original it sported a poor rattle can body refin. My initial thought was, “oh, what a dog”. After a month or so of it being in the store I completely fell in love with it. The tone and playability of this instrument we’re top notch and eventually I couldn’t stand to see it with the poor refin any longer. We sent it off to Joe Riggio of Riggio Custom Guitars here in Washington for a proper refin job. Joe did a great job and shortly after it was completed it sold to a local collector.
Shown is a before and after. We have hundreds and hundreds of guitars make their way in and out of our store each year and this is one I truly miss.
the faces made in death note are my favorite thing
it’s like everyone has really intense diarrhea

Also some randoms:
- Random 1: Suburban Hell.
- Random 2: Train in Vain
- Random 3: I Drink Alone, but double-fisted. PS: double-fisted means having two drinks on the go at the same time…and not the other thing you are thinking. PPS: it’s soda water.
Also, dust is the BANE OF MY EXISTENCE as a guitar photographer.
