Last update: All remaining Fritters claimed. In the end mbp gave out about 150+ so I expect to see lots of Hotcake builds, haha. A great success. We'll do another giveaway probably in July but I don't know yet what it will be.

I will have more info very soon on the remaining projects to be released (HB1.5, ManOWar and Polytrog). Lastly, all the boards currently out of stock have been re-ordered and should be here in about 10 days.

Fritters should be here Monday so I expect outstanding orders will start shipping same day (they are already bagged and waiting). Also, it looks like I got 60 more rather than 40 so that's nice.

This kinda feels like most parts orders I do, too. I always forget something and quite often the thing that started it all. But, I sure as hell seem to order a lot of stuff that never gets used. The problem with browsing Mouser is I always find something where I think "oh yeah, I'll figure out a way to use that in something". Yeah...not so much.

Okay, yeah I went too far. But, the 5mm one on the left actually feels pretty good.

Yeah I'm going to return it. I think what I will do is hold off a while longer for more funds then get a Mexican Classic Player. I really liked the one I played in Sam Ash a lot. It's almost twice the price, though, haha.

If you don't mind the safari hunt of CL or FB Marketplace (I actually enjoy it more than buying new), you can find a good deal on a variety of JMs.  I did a quick CL search and found some good stuff across the country, including some J Mascis models for $325 and $375.  If you have the ability to try out the specific guitar you're buying instead of ordering it online for an offset, do it.  You can find the ones with the good nuts.  If you end up getting a Classic Player, you'll find too that there are some that are really light (like in the 7-7.5 lbs range), which you may or may not prefer.

I could make a new nut for the one I got but I just don't want to bother, honestly, since I have several other guitar projects needing to get done. But yeah - I think looking locally might be the thing to do. The one at Sam Ash was pretty nice and most of their guitar are set up terribly and feel even worse, haha.

Do you think the Fritter stocks will hold until the Man O' War DX gets released? I was gonna wait until it comes out to place my order but if they're going that fast I might just order a couple boards now just to ensure I get my hands on one and then order the Man O' War whenever it comes out.

I wish I could give you a definite answer but I can't. I think realistically the MOW, Polytrog and HB 1.5 will come out at the same time as the new restocks. So, there may be Fritters left by that point or not. I think there are probably 25 or so remaining considering what I have coming vs. outstanding orders as of tonight.

Do keep in mid that the Fritter will be made available at OSH Park in a couple of weeks, as well. It's a small board and will be quite cheap to get from OSH if you don't succeed in the giveaway.

On the bright side - this situation is not going to happen again. Like I said before I am going to change up the way things are released so this piecemeal crap won't be an issue in the future. Plus, I have at least 4-5 more giveaways ready - enough to last into 2020. I actually really enjoy doing the giveaway boards. It's an inexpensive way to drum up orders plus give something back to all you guys at the same time. Win/Win.

I know the saddle width is supposed to be a little smaller on JMs and Jags than the rest of the Fender lineup (see the Staytrem page at http://staytrem.com/jag-jazz-bridge1), and would assume the nut width is as well.  My guess is that they're cutting standard Tele/Strat nut slots and it's a bad deal.

The pic on the Fender website shows a correctly spaced nut so I think this is a manufacturer issue, not design. Although it does look a little off on the E to E at the highest frets. I dunno.

If I order something now, will you hold onto it until you get the Fritters restocked?  While I would like one, I won't pass up getting a Rustbucket as that's been at the top of my MB build wish list, so I'm fine ordering now and saying Fuck the Fritter (gordo you started something here).

That said, if I do end up with a Fritter, I'll probably somehow use that phase in the etched artwork...

Yes. I will hold all orders that don't have Fritters until I get the re-stock (I think the new batch is shipping tomorrow). Currently there are less than 10 orders in that queue. I think I got 40 more boards but that's going to be it for this giveaway so it is first come first serve.
