$1,299.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2022 Fender Junior Collection Jazzmaster in near-mint condition and in perfect working order, sporting a satin Daphne Blue finish. A new Fender Japan exclusive model, the Junior Collection Jazzmaster features a shorter 24" scale length, fractionally scaled-down body, and streamlined control array in-line with the American Professional models.

Featherweight at 6lbs 2oz with a basswood body, maple neck and thick slab rosewood fretboard, this Jazzmaster has a clear, smooth natural acoustic tone translated faithfully via the newly-designed "Junior Collection Modified" single coil pickups. The bridge pickup offers a clear sparkle and bite, while the neck pickup has more inherent warmth and bell-like top end. This Jazzmaster has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action and accurate intonation.

The maple neck has a slender C-shaped profile carve with a smooth satin finish on the profile, featuring full shoulders and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .815" deep at the 1st fret and .925" at the 12th. The slab rosewood fretboard has a modern 9 1/2" radius with flawless slender fretwire, playing effortlessly up the straight neck and truncated 24" scale length. The nut measures 1.650" (42mm) in width, carved from bone for optimal note clarity and sustain. The headstock features a Pre-CBS-style "spaghetti" Jazzmaster logo and Kluson-style tuning machines.

The electronics function flawlessly, and controls include a three-way pickup selector switch and Master Volume and Tone knobs. Hardware comprises the Mustang-style bridge with barrel saddles and vibrato unit with screw-in arm. The vibrato actuates easily for quick shimmies and deeper dives with ease, and the chrome plating on the hardware shines like new save for light wear on the forward edge of the barrel saddles and on the vibrato arm collet. Plastics include a mint green pickguard and ivory knobs and pickup covers. There's barely a scratch on the satin Daphne Blue body finish, and the satin finish on the neck profile is equally pristine.

The original Fender-branded gigbag is included.
