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

This rare pre-CBS Fender Jazzmaster even comes complete with its original bridge cover, tremolo arm and strap. However it also include matching number hang tag and the rare instruction manuel.

Cosmetically, this guitar shows  “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 clean as can be.
This is an exceptional example of a pre-CBS Jazzmaster. The original Black Pickup’s is very balanced and strong and sounds incredibly good.

The guitar is powerful, resonant and extremely versatile, this is everything you’d expect from a guitar produced in the Fender’s golden age periode. 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 voicing’s 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.

Comes complete with its original Fender brown hardshell case w/orange interior. Latches and handle in perfect working order.

Pickups and the Electronics/wiring are untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.

Pots date: 19th & 21th week of 1961
Neck pickup: 10.50 kOhm
Bridge pickup: 8.01 kOhm
Weight: 3.58 kilograms
