What Does Josh Think?

I’m really digging this Curtis Novak pickup set. JM-V neck, Jag-V middle and JM-FAT bridge. The JM pickups have that true Jazzmaster “clack” with generous output, punchy bottom and pristine top end. They’ll push a tube amp more than your average single-coils, giving the perception they are a touch compressed with some extra thump.

Rolling the tone knob back can drop you into surprisingly creamy territory. Don’t be afraid to get aggressive with it. You can go almost all the way to zero without losing definition on either neck or bridge. In fact, rolling completely back with both of the JM pickups engaged gets you a warm, muffled honk while STILL maintaining intelligibility on top. By contrast, this pickup combo with the tone all the way up is wonderfully clucky and crisp.

I personally like having the “rhythm circuit” queued up with the bass roller pot backed off a touch, and the treble rolled off a touch more. This dials in the character of a low-output Strat pickup, namely a big and round midrange sandwiched between smooth-yet-expressive highs and lows. Unlike a traditional JM rhythm circuit, all pickups are accessible and the tone is unaffected until rolling back the wheels.

Pairing the Jag pickup in the middle with either of the JM’s has a nice bit of Strat-like quack. Want even more? Go all three pickups at once. Seriously, you might forget you’re holding a JM-shaped guitar and think you’re on an “in between” position with your Strat for a moment.

This Sonic Blue finish isn’t just any Sonic Blue. The Pearl may be hard to catch in photos but in person, it has a subtle-but-lovely metallic sparkle. The finish also has wonderful aging. The neck is master grade flame maple, roasted and adorned by a beautiful cut of rosewood, binding and block inlays. The whole guitar weighs in just a touch under 8lb, resonant and easy on the shoulder!

 

How Does It Play?

This beauty sets up a hair over 4/64” on the low E string at the 12th fret and right at 4/64” on the high E. Not a hint of fretbuzz. The neck profile is reminiscent of a ’66 Strat Oval C, not too thin and yet with enough removed from the back to keep it from ever feeling bulky. The magic is in the shoulders. The satin finish is especially smooth and, by nature, resistant to oil and sweat buildup when things really get cooking.
