Fender Japan Rare 1989 FujiGen Built Jazzmaster '66 RI MIJ J-Serial Three Tone S
For sale we have this beautiful 1989-90 MIJ J-Serial 1966 reissue Three Tone Sunburst Fender Jazzmaster. It’s a Japanese Fender, not Mexican, so you can expect superb build quality coupled with vintage specs. The alder body grain on this one is superb, check out the pics. It’s a real old FujiGen Gakki built Jazzmaster so you know it’s gonna be good. There are very few Fender FujiGen Jazzmasters around from this period. Virtually all you’ll see up for sale will be later early/mid 90’s FujiGens or even more likely CIJ/MIJ Dyna & Tokai built guitars. This old beauty has an alder body in great looking factory three tone sunburst finish with a FujiGen era 3-ply red tort pickguard and the early FujiGen ‘Fender’ stamped neckplate. Nice dark & dense Indian slab 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. Neck is dead straight, truss rod fine, plenty of life left in the frets (pics). Structurally and electrically sound. No breaks, repairs or modifications. All circuits working as they should. Good weight at 3.7kg. Around 35-years old but nice for the era with just the right amount of ageing, it is well along the road to being a real vintage looker! The metal hardware has dulled and greyed over the years (especially the tuners). The finish has a great looking dull shine (see above). All the white plastics have also yellowed rounding off the natural vintage look and feel. There is a paint chip around the bottom strap pin that looks to have been touched in. Some shallow patches of wear on the back of the neck (pics). Complete with tremolo arm & padded gig bag. A beautiful looking & playing vintage spec old FujiGen Fender Jazzmaster. This is how a Jazzmaster should be, why anyone would choose a sterile Mexican guitar over an old FujiGen beauty like this I just don’t get. Don't miss it!
