This is the natural out-growth of the SRF Series. Different enough to earn itself a separate and New Model name: The JZM is everything you would expect from it’s exceptional beginnings… A Poplar Body with a Stylized Swooped “F” Hole to help with weight and a finely Crafted CNC Body with a more extreme arched top and a unique Central Raised Platform.. It also sports a SUPERB Musikraft Birds-Eye Maple, Medium C Profile with Dark Rosewood Fingerboard and synthetic Bone Nut.
Everything about these Guitars is built for Tone and Sustain!!!
The Hardware and Electronics only push the Guitar further with an All-Brass Mighty Mite Stratocaster Synchronized Tremolo Bridge as well as Extra-Grip Tall Brass Knobs (Split-Coil Push-Pull function on the tone control) and a 5 Position Rotary Switch for tone control. Modern, Gold String-Locking Machine Heads. The Pickups are the Fantastic Seymour Duncan P-Rail Humbucker/Single Coil Pickup in the bridge position and a Lindy Fralin Steel Pole Strat Pickup in the middle position and finally a Wonderful Lindy Fralin Blues Special in the neck position.
WOW! What a Tour de Force!!! All of this adds up to an extremely Versatile instrument!!!
The Finish is a Custom Classic TONE Guitars, Antiqued, Green Satin Burst that is really like no other that I have seen before. I designed the finish a Year before the guitar was built (see image of original Mock-up in the Construction Photos link below) then I set out to convince Scotty Huffman from The Guitar Tone Shop That he was the one guy uniquely qualified to take this series on. Needless to say, he hit it out of the Park.
You know when you play an electric guitar unplugged and it just sounds fantastic … right from the first note!… well this is exactly that!!! And the Electronics and Hardware bolster this inherent Tone and allow it to be audible to everyone! This is a Custom Designed Instrument with tons of features and Tons of Tone. The JZM is the latest the the line of custom electric Guitars from Classic TONE Guitars.
C-ya next time, Joe
