We present an all original 1961 Fender Jazzmaster in its original 3-Tone Sunburst finish.
This pre-CBS Fender Jazzmaster is in excellent condition and even comes complete with its original bridge cover and tremolo arm. Cosmetically, this guitar shows little “play-wear” on the back of the neck and few nicks and dings on the front and sides. The neck profile and headstock face are as clean as can be. Some of the decal is missing witch is quite common. Otherwise, this is an exceptional example of a pre-CBS Jazzmaster.
The original Black pickups are very balanced and strong and sounds incredibly good. The original frets have still plenty of life left. The guitar is powerful, resonant and extremely versatile, this is everything you’d expect from a guitar produced in Fender’s golden age period. Beautiful dark rosewood slab board with clay dots. Acoustically, the guitar has a very authoritative sound that translates well through the two original Black Bobbin Pickups. 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.
Pickups and electronics/wiring are 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.
