Description:
A young bull and his father were standing on a hilltop overlooking a pasture of cows. The young bull looked up excitedly at his father and said, "Hey Pop. Why don't we run down the hill and bang one of those cows?" The old bull smiled slightly and replied, "Son, why don't we walk down the hill and bang them all instead?"

That old joke only goes to reflect on the wisdom that comes with age and the knowledge one can gather over a lifetime, so as Lee and I stood in the basement of a certain gentleman's home, overlooking a collection of 9 Jazzmasters, that joke was nowhere in my thoughts. Custom colors, from Fiesta Red to Ice Metallic Blue to Olympic White lay before us and most were in virtually unplayed condition. All were expensive. Of the three sunburst guitars, this one had the most visible playwear, so I imagined that it played and sounded great. If there's no wear on the tires, then the car wasn't driven very much, right? Or so they say...

Lee looked this Jazzmaster over and finally said, "This is a refret, right? If so, it's a good one." The owner of the guitars was a fairly stern sort of fellow and replied, "Yep it is- one of the best you'll ever see. Of course, in these past years, a refretted vintage guitar was only worth being damned to burn in a lake of fire for all eternity and thrown off the highest of cliffs, but this is 2017 and it's not necessarily that way anymore. Lee was speaking with the owner about the refret and the asking price, when the guy, as deadpan as you could get, looked at us both and said, "Son, are you gonna play it or stare at it?" It's been a good while since we were both left without words, but in hindsight, the man had a point. I'd be afraid to breathe on any of those other beauties because they were so clean, but with this Jazzmaster, one could actually take it onstage, plug it into an amp and make some music with it. Ain't that a novel idea? And, here I thought playing a guitar, getting some girls, sitting on the hood of your car drinking a beer and just living out the life of a musician was an art long lost and gone. Well, maybe it ain't after all...

This early '60 Jazzmaster is a vintage gem and one you can enjoy for years and years. Maybe some father could buy it for his son, take his damn iPhone away and show him some chords. Who knows- with some good, hard practice time and a few friends, that boy could walk down the hill instead someday...
