Fender Jazzmaster and Elvis Costello

Fender recently added another artist guitar to their never ending list.It is Elvis Costello and the Jazzmaster guitar,it's the one with the 2 big pick ups!A bit of an ugly guitar to me,the big pick ups,the large bridge plate,and....major tuning problems come along with this guitar because of the bridge design(lock that bridge down!)!I guess it's deserving for an Elvis Costello/Fender,he is popular and actually traded a new Tele for his first/used Jazzmaster(video below).But hey...Elvis,try not to team up with Burt Bacharach anymore,stick to what you do...r&r/reggae/?...sorta!!!In all honesty though he seems a rather nice and sincere guy.

Fender announces a new Elvis Costello Signature Jazzmaster guitar, honoring one of the most recognized Jazzmaster players in music history. The iconic electric guitar, produced in Fender's manufacturing headquarter in Corona, Calif. is a detailed replica of Costello's original instrument...
