Bad Jazz
I have a reissue japanese Jazzmaster not sure of the year, but unplugged it sure sounds awfull. I'm not sure if I'm nuts but It sounds like plastic? No kidding. It sounds like I'm strummin strings tied to an ice cream bucket! This thing (like all jazzmasters) has a big plastic pickguard and when I unscrew the pickguard and lift it up, wallah here comes good tones. Whats going on here? Even strats have big plastic pickguards but they sound good,  
Anybody have an opinion here?
