Here is a beautiful old 1966 reissue Three Tone Sunburst Fender Jazzmaster in a rich three tone sunburst finish. It’s a 90’s Japanese Fender, not Mexican, so you can expect superb build quality coupled with vintage specs.  It’s a CIJ P-serial (late 1999-2002) which was just after Fender moved production away from FujiGen gakki. It feels to us like a FujiGen and there was a lot of crossover around this time between old FujiGen stock and newer components. This one may well be a left over FujiGen build, it certainly feels like it to us. It has an alder body in great looking factory Three Tone Sunburst finish with a FujiGen-era 3-ply red tort pickguard. Nice dark & dense rosewood used for the fingerboard (not pau ferro). The fingerboard has a vintage spec 7.25 radius, just as it should be. Very resonant and feels great to play. Great weight at 3.6kg. Neck is dead straight, truss rod fine, plenty of life left in the frets. Structurally and electrically sound. No breaks, repairs or modifications. It’s in nice condition for the age with no big ugly marks. Just few little bumps and scuffs but big or nasty. The white plastics have yellowed too. This is how a Jazzmaster should look and feel; why anyone would choose a sterile Mexican guitar over a superior build quality of an old Japanese beauty like this I just don’t get. Anyway, it’s complete with trem arm & gig bag. A stunning looking & playing vintage spec 1990’s Fender Japan Jazzmaster. All pictures are of actual guitar, we do not use stock photos.
