1959 FenderJazzmaster – Sunburst

This 1959 Fender Jazzmaster in Sunburst may be new to our shop, but its easy playability and incredible-feeling slab board make it the perfect fit in our ever-growing inventory. This is what we would call a “two-and-a-half-tone” Sunburst finish, as the red dye in these early three-tone sunburst guitars fades very easily with time. It is truly a pleasure to play and in great condition. Besides being stupid clean, it’s also completely original, right down to the frets. They have clearly been played but still have life left in them. This Jazzmaster is paired with a slew of case candy, all tucked neatly into its original Brown Tolex! If you’re into early offsets, how much more iconic can you get than a slab board Jazzmaster with a tortoiseshell guard?!
