Fender Jazz-A-Caster, MIJ signature model of Will Ray of the Hellacasters
This 1998 Japanese-made Will Ray (of the Hellacasters) signature model Fender Jazz-A-Caster is one of those weird Fender hybrids that takes one of their models and mixes it up with elements from another model. It's a bit like the Pawn Shop series but on a grander Custom Shop scale. This so-called Jazz-a-caster obviously has a lot of Telecaster in its DNA but also has a little Jazzmaster thrown into the mix. This particular model is signed by Will Ray and is numbered #242 out of 300 examples made.

Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of US $1,390. It's kind of ironic that he has this expensive signature model made by Fender when he writes Bottom Feeder, a regular column for Premier Guitar where he celebrates all his latest cheap and cheerful guitar acquisitions (and which I utterly applaud).

  1. It's growing on me! That distressed gold finish is very attractive..
    I'm not convinced a couple of oversized pickups (and the generic headstock) is enough to warrant the 'Jazz' tag, but as they are custom Seymour Duncans, I am sure they will sound very good
