1962 Fender Jazzmaster, serial: 79547. Sunburst finish in good condition. It has a beautiful tortoiseshell pickguard and a slab rosewood fingerboard with clay dots. It's an amazing guitar to play and it sounds fantastic. The bridge cover is missing but otherwise all original and complete including the brown tolex case. It comes with 3-months warranty and a 14-day returns policy.

There is light lacquer checking throughout the finish and numerous patches of wear, mainly around the edges of the body, some of which have been touched-up. The main areas of the body front and back have smaller nicks and dings but are overall in good shape. The back of the neck has some play-wear through the finish. The edges of the headstock have some bumps and bruises. Everything remains structurally sound with no breaks or repairs. The pickguard is in great condition with only minimal shrinkage and no warping. The original frets are in good condition with plenty of life left in them and have been cleaned and dressed in our workshop. All hardware and electronics are in good working order including the truss rod which works correctly.

This guitar has been set up in our workshop with a fresh set of Ernie Ball regular Slinky strings and a medium-low action. A couple of wires had come loose on the pickups so we re-flowed the solder. The neck is date stamped Apr '62. The body date is 6/62. The tone pot dates to the 8th week of 62, the volume pot, 19th week of 61. Both pickups are original with black bobbins and original windings. Weight 8lbs 1oz / 3.66 kg. Nut width: 41.8 mm. Depth at 1st fret: 20 mm.

The Jazzmaster was Launched in mid 1958 as the top of the range Fender guitar, and featured Fender’s first neck with a rosewood fretboard. It's an incredible Rock’n’Roll and Surf guitar and was a firm favourite of 90s bands like Nirvana, Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine.
