2021 Fender Traditional 60s Jazzmaster FSR Walnut Near-Mint w/ Hangtags, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2021 Fender Traditional II 60s Jazzmaster in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag and hangtags. This FSR (Factory Special Run) model features a Walnut gloss finish over an alder body, accented by a deep red tortoise pickguard, clearly evoking Elvis Costello's Jazzmaster. Designed for sale exclusively in the Japanese domestic market and select foreign territories, this discontinued Jazzmaster is uncommon outside its country of origin.

A reinvention of Fender Japan's Jazzmaster platform, the new Traditional 60s model features Fender USA V-Mod black bobbin pickups, as well as USA-made CTS pots, Switchcraft switches, and USA Fender plastic parts. A textbook example of everything we love about the Jazzmaster, the instrument has plenty of twang and sparkle on tap, with a range of powerful and defined tones from the two single coil pickups, and warm, wooly sounds when switched to the Rhythm Circuit on the guitar's lower body horn. Weighing 7lbs 12oz, this guitar benefits from a professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The maple neck has a fuller profile carve than earlier Fender Japan Jazzmasters, with generous shoulder and lightly rolled fretboard edges, offering a chunky C shape at the nut and just a hair more heft in the higher registers, measuring .885" deep at the 1st fret and .930" at the 12th. The rosewood fretboard features a modern 9 1/2" radius and slender fretwire that shows only a hint of wear beneath the plain strings on frets 1-3. The scale length is a full 25 1/2", and the carved bone nut measures 42mm (1.650") in width. The headstock sports a Pre-CBS style "Spaghetti" Jazzmaster logo, with Kluson-style tuning machines which turn smoothly and hold pitch well.

All of the electronics function flawlessly, and the chrome hardware has plenty of shine, including the vibrato, bridge, and spiral saddles. The vibrato unit engages smoothly, working in concert with the vintage-style bridge. Plastics are notably clean, including the parchment pickup covers and knobs and deep red glossy tortoise pickguard. The gloss Walnut finish exhibits just a scant few tiny dings on the back along the lower bout, and the gloss finish on the neck profile is flawless.

The original Fender-branded gigbag is included, along with the Japanese hangtags.
