Fender Jazzmaster from 1965, in very good condition.

Here is an great example of one of the first Fender Jazzmasters of the CBS era, with a neck dated from August 1965, just a few months after the company founded by Leo Fender was bought up by the TV conglomerate!

The guitar features a mixture of appointments specific to this transitional period: the Sunburst finish has large areas with lots of gradient between colors, the pickguard is a late example of the use of tortoiseshell-patterned nitrocellulose, generally replaced at this time by ABS ‘guards. The rosewood fingerboard features the pearloid dot-style inlays adopted in early 1965; the neck binding will make its appearance on the model starting in the fall of 1965. The tuners are the venerable Kluson Deluxe, a reference used since the 1950s which would be replaced in 1966 by the “F”-stamped tuners. The neck plate bears one of the very last “L” serial numbers, synonymous to many with the golden age of Fender solid-body electrics. Please note, the headstock logo has been replaced and the neck professionally refinished. Equipped with a Mastery Bridge M1, the original bridge is now stored in the case. Fully set up, appraised and prepared in our workshop, this beautiful Jazzmaster is ready to offer the best of its bright tones, in total comfort – liberal use of spring reverb is strongly recommended!

In its original Fender hardshell case with its vibrato bar, along with miscellaneous case candy.
