    Default When you buy a Jazzmaster, what other bits d'you get?

    I bought a Japanese one off the wall at the local guitar emporium. It's a Crafted in Japan, made in the last 2 years. But it's hung there so long the sales guys have lost it's associated bits. Besides the trem arm, what else should i be getting? Manual, bag, strap, tools, stickers, swing-tags, cloth, banners, bunting, free-drink-sachet, etc etc? I'm not talking about the thrown in freebies, i'm asking about the "included with guitar" stuff. I'm a geek that way, and i want my swingtags n tools, n manual. It helps proove (in 40 years) that i bought it new, direct from Japan!

    Hope someone who has recently got one can shed some light...
    thanks

    the new FJs that I bought...and they were rare...came with.....the cheapest gig bag you can imagine, the hang tags, the trem arm, an allen key or two and the warranty. Thats it. But...none were Jazzmasters.

    well, i eventually got it from someone who knows for sure!

    Very helpful folks at Ishibashi Japan! These guys really deserve praise...

    here's what they e-mailed me within the hour (and it was after-hours in japan)

    ".....from Ishibashi WEB SHOP.

    From the serial number you gave me, I can tell the guitar is from their
    2003-2005 production. The guitar should have originally come with the
    following items.

    -Original black soft case
    -Tremolo Arm Bar
    -Wrench for the saddles
    -Manual in Japanese
    -Warranty card for domestic use only
    -Tag
    -Guitar cable

    If you have a question, please feel free to contact me.
    Thank you very much."


    Nice hey. Shop there, i would...if the postal service here didn't steal everything that entered the country...

    I think you should get a nice chocolate muffin and a free massage.

    Welcome to the Forum, More-Gear!

    I'm glad it worked out for you. I've heard that they are reputable dealers.

    But I also agree with Dr. Jake, a chocolate muffin and a massage would be a nice touch to seal the deal. 8)

    Stay tuned,
    Stan

    you`re more likely to get a massage when getting a hair cut. Guitar stores will massage your wallet.....till it`s nice and thin.

    sure thing, a muffin and massage is always in high demand. Thing is... the guys from Ishibashi were simply providing info... I bought the guitar from a official fender joint here in town. But they were so, err, slack about finding the bits n bobs. I had to find out what those items were, and then demand them. Eventually i was given a vibrato bar (long, with no thread?)

    yay!

    I'll pass on the massage. When I visited AC I went to the Victorville Mall and got an Asian massage. A real cute little gal enticed me with a freebie and I went ahead and paid for the full deal. Somehow after I removed my glasses and put my head in the donut they played the ol' switcheroo game and turns out some guy was working me over. Only I didn't notice until he climbed on my back and I felt something funny on my butt cheeks. When I turned and looked Charlie starts pile driving his elbow into my shoulders. "Deep massage make for good sir" says the VC. WRONG! It hurt like hell. He must have thought I killed his dad in the war or something and came over here to give something back. I'll have to ask Lance if he knows what I'm talking about someday.

    Thanks for the advice, McG! I wouldn't wanna get caught in one of those switcheroos.
