Introduced in 1959 and intended as an upgraded replacement for the Stratocaster, the Fender Jazzmaster never really found favour with players at the time, but has become somewhat of a cult icon in the last 30 years, forming the sound of alternative music throughout the 80's, 90's and 00's. As vintage prices steadily rise, Japanese made Fender instruments have provided a more affordable option for many players looking for vintage spec instruments. This 1994 - 1995 Fender Japan JM66 Jazzmaster in Olympic White pairs Japanese playability with authentically vintage Fender looks.
This MIJ Fender Jazzmaster features a cool Olympic White custom colour gloss finish, in good condition and offering a sleek look to the instrument. The Maple neck sports a comfortable 60's style 'C' shape profile with vintage style 7.25" radius while the Rosewood fingerboard is in good condition, with plenty of life left in the frets. The neck features the iconic block inlay and bound looks, one of the most recognisable features of vintage Jazzmasters. The pickups have all the clarity and warmth of their 60's counterparts, offering unparalleled tonal versatility with the unique dual rhythm and lead circuitry. The traditional Jazzmaster vibrato unit combines with an upgraded Mustang style bridge for greater string stability. This Jazzmaster is finished off with Japanese made Kluson style tuners and a vibrant 60's style tortoiseshell guard.
