We present an all original 1961 Fender Jazzmaster in its original Blond finish. Made in Fullerton, California.
The guitar is powerful, resonant and extremely versatile, this is everything you’d expect from a guitar produced in Fender’s golden age period. Able to deliver everything from sparkle and twang in the bridge position to wooly and complex tones at the neck, this Jazzmaster boasts a distinct and usable tone in every position. Flip a switch to the oft disregarded (and infinitely cool) Rhythm Circuit and you have a whole new palette of dark voicings meant to appeal to the “Jazz” player that never really got on with this instrument, but a tonal range that really loves a heavily overdriven tube amp.
Cosmetically, this guitar shows little “buckle rash” on the back and nicks and dings on the front and sides, with a few spots of notable wear down to the bare wood and an assortment of small nicks and scratches to the back of the guitar. The original Blond finish has turned yellowish over time. The neck profile and headstock face are as clean as can be. It features beautiful dark rosewood slab board with clay dots. The original Black Pickups are very balanced and strong and sounds incredibly good. New foam is added under the pickups so it’s possible to adjust the height. The original frets have still plenty of life left. The tremolo arm is an original periode correct from the start 60’s but it’s not born with the guitar.
Pickups and electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes complete with its original Fender brown hardshell case w/yellow interior. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
