he coulda said that about any of the guitars. I have no idea how many
Jazzmasters he has, I know that on one of his tours all of Tom's equipment
was stolen which I believe never turned up either. I can't imagine that he'd
sell a Jazzmaster that he really likes. There's gotta be a reason for this
going besides money. He is playing a little so he's got some money coming
in. I can't
figure this one out, but if I had the money I still wouldn't buy it because
of the doubtfulness of it's being the MM guitar. M T C
