The Fender Jazzmaster is one of the most popular lines in the Fender offset collection, a real player's favourite; it has been a staple in the roster for over 50 years. The Fender Custom Shop '62 Jazzmaster is the absolute pinnacle of Fender offset design.
This guitar has some serious mojo! With a 2-piece Alder body, finished in a sweet Ocean Turquoise, this Custom Shop Jazzmaster boasts an NOS finish. Period correct, this finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. It also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively compared with other finishes. The NOS finish gives the appearance of a New Old Stock guitar, one that has been perfectly preserved since 1960 and doesn't feature any kind of ageing or relic work.
Classic Jazzmaster tones come from the superb '62 handwound Jazzmaster pickups with flat magnets. Jazzmaster have seen a resurgence of late and this particular model is bound to attract some serious interest. The tinted plain grain Maple neck features a cracking AAA grade Rosewood fingerboard, 21 medium jumbo frets, a 9.5" radius and a 62 Jazzmaster profile. It's smooth, and comfortable.
With an RSD J-bridge and vintage style tuning heads you get great stability and intonation, this is a real players guitar.
With a real vintage vibe, this is a real cool cat!
