This Fender MJ Traditional 60's Jazzmaster is in excellent condition. It has no scratches or abrasions. The film was removed from the pickguard.
This Fender Jazzmaster is part of the Made In Japan Traditional Series. This run of guitars were made available to the US market through a dealer select event in Scottsdale, Arizona in the spring of 2018.
Long running as Fender's sound of the underground, the Jazzmaster is a 25.5" scale offset solidbody electric. This guitar's sound predominantly comes from its pickup design - a true single coil with a wider frequency range, which produce a beefier sound than a traditional single coil.
At the top cutaway of this MIJ Traditional Jazzmaster is the vintage-spec Lead/Rhythm circuit - which consists of a seperate volume and 50K tone stack for the neck pickup enabled via a two-way slider switch. Slider up indicates the rhythm position being active, which will only allow the neck pickup in the circuit - with a darker, muffled tone.
This guitar's previous owner has done this Jazzmaster additional justice by installing a Mastery M1 bridge. The Mastery bridge solves the years-old problem of Jazzmaster saddles falling victim to unnecessary friction and recession while still sounding like a Jazzmaster.
This guitar plays like a dream. Its gloss-back thick C neck shape fills the hand comfortably. Plugged in, this Jazzmaster has classic jangle and twang. The Mastery bridge stablizes intonation even for the heaviest of hands.
The MIJ Traditional Jazzmasters are in limited quantities. Finding one equipped with a Mastery is an even more challenging feat. Here's your chance!
