We present an all original 1965 Fender Jazzmaster in its original Firemist Gold finish. This piece is so amazing and a rare piece of history as well as a top collector piece and a top notch player! This is one of the most rare Custom Colors you can come across and was introduced officially as custom color in 1965.
This Jazzmaster is all original and comes complete with its original-periode correct bridge cover and periode original tremolo arm.
Cosmetically, the guitar shows only few nicks and dings on the front and sides, with a few spot 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. The grey Bobbins pickups are very strong and very balanced.
The guitar is powerful, resonant and extremely versatile, this is everything you’d like and it has a great, strong, and big C-shape neck profile with dots and bindings.
Acoustically, the guitar is able to deliver everything from sparkle and twang in the bridge position to woody and complex tones at the neck. This jazzmaster boasts a distinct and usable tone in every position. Flip a switch (tip replaced to a periode correct) to the often 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.
Pickups and the 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.
