We present an original 1962 pre-CBS Fender Jazzmaster in its original and super rare; see thru Blond finish with its original hang tags !
This pre-CBS Fender Jazzmaster is all original and it even comes complete with its original bridge cover, tremolo arm, and strap. Furthermore you get the original instruction manual and its original SUPER RARE matching number hang tag.
Cosmetically, this guitar shows few “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 ash and an assortment of small nicks and scratches to the back of the guitar.
The thin neck profile and headstock face is clean as it can be. This is an exceptional example of a pre-CBS Jazzmaster!
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.
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.
This guitar is so amazing and a super rare piece of history as well as a top collector piece and notch player!
Pickups and electronics/wiring are untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes with its original hardshell case.
