This guitar was purchased new at Sam Ash  in Brooklyn NY and has been part of my family ever since .  It belonged to my uncle  who gigged heavily with it before joining the Army in 1968.  When he returned he sold it to my cousin in 1971, The guitar stayed, in his basement, practically untouched since 1971. Now having just retired and downsizing to a house that does not have a basement he is looking to sell it and asked me to help.

JAZZMASTER HISTORY
Fender announced the Jazzmaster at the 1958 NAMM show as a high-end jazz guitar with an array of innovative features and sleek sports-car inspired curves. Though the model never really caught on with jazz players, it was quickly embraced by surf rock players due to its unique floating tremolo system and mellower sounding pickups. Later, the Jazzmaster would find new life as an iconic instrument for a range of indie rock players.
Years of Production: 1958 - 1980
