Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 2023 Fender Traditional II 60s Jazzmaster in near-mint condition and in perfect working order, upgraded with a pair of boutique Lollar pickups. An FSR (Factory Special Run) example with a Sonic Blue gloss finish and matching peghead, this iteration of the Traditional II 60s Jazzmaster platform was made for a single dealer in Japan in extremely small quantities. Other features pertinent to this particular variant on the Traditional platform include an alder body, medium jumbo fretwire, a bound rosewood fretboard with vintage spec 7 1/4" radius, and a Mustang-style bridge with barrel saddles. The current Traditional series Fender Japan models are designed exclusively for the domestic Japanese market, rarely seen outside their country of origin.

A reinvention of Fender Japan's Jazzmaster platform, the new Traditional II 60s model features USA-spec CTS pots, Switchcraft switches, and USA Fender plastic parts. A textbook example of everything we love about the Jazzmaster, the upgraded pair of Lollar pickups are faithful to vintage spec with alnico magnets, black fiber bobbins and push-back cloth-covered leads. The bridge pickup has plenty of sparkle and glassy sheen, while the neck pickup is bold and woody. Thicker, darker sounds are on tap via the Rhythm Circuit on the guitar's lower body horn. Weighing 7lbs 5oz, the guitar balances well on a strap, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action and accurate intonation.
