    NGD: Capsule Custom (JM)

    It took 8 days to travel 2 hours, but it's here! Capsule Custom "Bender" JM, 2020 build.





















    Specs:
    Aged olympic white (MJT)

    Alder Body

    Maple Neck with Rosewood fretboard

    width at the nut is 1 5/8" , radius is 9.5, thickness at the 1st fret is .86" and at the 12th is .96", standard C neck profile with vintage tall frets.

    Pickup Wizard Jazzmaster pickups

    Relic'd hardware

    Impressions - damn! This thing is beefy! Turns out it has 11-52's compared to the 10-46 on the Fender . The standard C description is definitely a bit chunkier than your average standard C, and I'm good with that. Fender style guitars with beefy necks are my new jam, as it turns out. I'm guessing a bit of it has to do with the downbar, but the pickup wizard option in here sound nice and very full. I reduced a little bit of bass and added a little treble in my JM preset after tracking. Mark at Capsule was great to deal with, very quick to answer all of my questions.

    A clean a/b:

    Nice! Though the colors on the Fender one are more my style. When did you start liking JMs?
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    I tried a G&L Doheny on my last tour with Sparrows and I dug it. When we got the fender deal, the only reason I didn't go JM was the worry that I'd be popping half the strings out of their saddles all the time.

    My end goal with a JM is shell pink, bound board, wraptail bridge. Fano FM6's get close with the TOM bridge. Though there seems to be a stopbar bridge mod where a plate replaces the trem.

    I really like the mysic seafoam of the Fender - I'd miss it a lot if I didn't have the seafoam strat. Fender style guitars and pastel colours just go well together . Both would stay but I'm in "I want a goddamn house" mode so my friend picks up his new JM tomorrow.

    I know they're expensive, and a bit TGP flavour of the month. But I found the Mastery trem and bridge is awesome.

    Really nice guitar by the way!
