We present an all original 1961 Fender Jazzmaster in its original 3-Tone Sunburst finish.

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. Chasing improved intonation, although the stock bridge position intonates 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.

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 in perfect working order.
