1961 Fender jazzmaster – Sunburst
We present an all original 1961 Fender Jazzmaster in Sunburst finish. Made in Fullerton, california.
This pre-CBS Fender Jazzmaster even comes complete with its original bridge cover and tremolo arm. 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 neck profile and headstock face are as clean as can be. Beautiful dark rosewood slab board with clay dots.
Chasing improved intonation, although the stock bridge position intonate perfectly. Otherwise, this is an exceptional example of a pre-CBS Jazzmaster. 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 been dressed and there is still plenty of life left.
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 in perfect working order.
