I agree with Malcolm on this one. Unless it’s really cheap and you’re going to use it as a "thrasher" I wouldn’t bother. I love the look of the Jazzmaster, Jaguar, Musicmaster etc., as I feel most people who are into J and Sonic Youth are the same way. BUT, their playability is shite until you really learn how to play thsoe guitars. I know Thurston mods all his bridges as soon as he finds ones he likes. Just my .02 worth. You’d probably be better off with a US Strat, especially sound wise.
