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

Unique to this Year: Changes brought about with CBS purchase of Fender start to creep in by end of 1964 including change to plastic pickguard, switch from clay to pearloid inlays, and change in headstock decal. These factors indicate when in 1964 guitar was produced, with earlier examples demanding more than later produced guitars.
