1960 Fender Jazzmaster


In stock

Two Tone Sunburst, VG+ We got this from the family of the original owner. It was a Three Tone Sunburst but like many of the ’59-’60 guitars the red was made of an Aniline dye that faded in the sunlight. We are told from the owner it has ’59 pots but no neck date, typical of 1960 guitars. However, these large pickguards shrink and are best left alone.

A photo is worth a thousand words. But, you can see the natural wear of sixty years and a thousand gigs. Has satin neck lacquer, buckle and edge wear and some red dust on the headstock from the case. Has it’s original Kluson tuners and a bigger ’59 neck .795” at the first fret and .985” at the 12th. It just came out of our shop with a fresh refret (you’re welcome). The original pickups sound great. The roller switches feel firm (shrinking pickguard), but work. It has the original bridge and trem arm. So you have an early example slab Brazilian Rosewood fretboard, fresh frets so it plays like butter and great sounding pickups. It weighs just under 8 pounds so it is quite light for a Jazzmaster. Even the strap buttons are original. Comes with the original brown hard shell case.
