2003 Fender Jazzmaster '62 Vintage Reissue Offset Guitar JM66-80 Sunburst w/ Hangtag, Japan CIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2003 Fender Jazzmaster ‘62 vintage reissue model JM66-80 in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with hangtag. This "Crafted in Japan" Jazzmaster is a discontinued model, designed for sale within Japan and uncommon outside its country of origin.

Tonewoods include an alder body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, and the guitar offers a broad range of vintage-flavored tonalities. At 8lbs 1oz, the instrument has an authoritative, clear sound when strummed acoustically, qualities that are translated faithfully through the original alnico magnet single coil pair. These pickups offer plenty of definition and sparkling cut, with warmer, wooly sounds via the Rhythm Circuit on the guitar's lower body horn. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, where we specialize in Fender Offset instruments, this Jazzmaster features fresh 11-49 strings, low action and accurate intonation.

Wear is otherwise limited to a few small marks and light finish scratches in the clear coat. The smooth gloss finish on the neck profile is nigh flawless.
