No, you are getting it mixed up with 'Great Aussie Cricket'

I don't know about their LPs, but the Jedson Teles and basses I've seen were 60s (probalby Japan) loose copies that used pretty basic components and long before the Japanese really got into making frighteningly good copies. That said, they have a certain charm to them. You can upgrade to your heart's content, though. An original example is unlikely to exceed £100 on the Fleeb.

so go ahead and do it up then?
the pick-up sticks up more than any guitar ive seen, the body seems to be thinner than usual too. could the pick up be replaced easy enough?

Howdy.

Jedson was a superbudget brand from the late sixties and early seventies, competing with the likes of the "Top Twenty" range which were sold by Woolworths at the time. I remember them well, because the band I played in at the time (yes, I am that old...!) had a second guitarist who played one. Right now, these brands are worth next to nothing (certainly sub-£100/130euro) and are likely to stay that way unless somebody famous starts to use one. The stuff that's being churned out of China nowadays is better imo.

The most famous Jedson user was Neil (Nigel Planer) in the final episode of The Young Ones. He is playing a Jedson on the bus just before it goes over the cliff.
