Jacobson brothers movie

SIBLING RIVALRY is the name of the new Jacobson brothers movie. It’s a dark comedy set in rural Victoria .We have just finished shooting in the most incredible location .

At this stage we are keeping details secret but it wont be long (Aug 2018) until it bursts out of the screen in all its weird glory. Lots of experimentation has gone into the score including using my friend JO JO RAINWATER on vocals

for a feature track . Jo is a local legend now in Daylesford with a deep voice that touches the difficult to reach places of the heart , He introduced me to a home made native American bow string instrument . It’s a perfect fit for this movie . Stay tuned my friends, this film will be huge.

SUPER jazzmaster

I love my Jazzmaster so much that i made another one with some juicy improvements .

I bought the body and neck online , sealed and painted them in Daphne blue ( old fender colour ) nitro paint.

The bridge and tremelo are from MASTERY who make the most beautifully crafted hardware.

There is ZERO play in the tremelo which makes it feel so tactile and reliable .

The pickups are from Curtiss Novak wired by Rothstein. It features a back pickup with 4 independent windings.

4 switches engage each winding , it can sound like a twangy Telly one minute and a honky Les Paul the next.

My old red Jazzmaster ( 62 ) still is lovely and despite it looking a bit left-out is  a better guitar —– only just .
