FENDER JAZZMASTER, 1962
excellent condition and 100% original. Neck date 1962 (curved
board), pots date 1961, serial number 97xxx. Spaghetti logo, brazilian
rosewood board with clay-dots. Figured maple neck and headstock. Very
beautiful guitar in great shape: some belt-buckle wear, a little
playing wear here and there, back of neck shows a little more wear but
overall condition is really excellent. Every detail is original, from
Strat-style knobs to Kluson Deluxe single-line tuners, from tortoise
pickguard to 3-tone sunburst finish. No paint-stick mark on the
neck-pocket yet, unlike the slightly later '63 you see in our
Great sound, nice playability, frets are a little worn but still ok.
Lots of fretboard wear (see pics), but it doesn't affect playability
in any way. When we purchased this guitar, the connection between the neck pickup
and the upper-body's controls for 'rhythm' preset sound was
interrupted, but it has been correctly re-connected at our shop, using
correct wire and tape.
Mary's signature on the shielding under the pickguard. One of
the earliest post-slab Jazzmasters, gorgeous and great-sounding, a 1st
choice for both the player and the collector.
