1960 FenderJazzmaster – Sunburst

We’ll always love a worn-in pre-CBS Fender, and this 1960 Fender Jazzmaster in its original Sunburst has some miles on it! With a beautifully played-in neck profile and edgewear throughout the body, forearm, and buckle rash, this guitar brings a vibe. The dark rosewood slab fretboard contrasts beautifully with these aged clay dots, with the original frets having much life left in them. Thanks to two punchy pickups and the Jazzmaster’s clever wiring layout, you can emulate various tones, from surf to rock or even jazz! This example had the serial number stamped on the bottom edge of the neck plate and sports all original components, except for one replaced potentiometer (later 70s) in the Rhythm section.
