Up for sale, a 2023 Fender Traditional II 60s Jazzmaster in mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the factory 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. This limited edition Fender is a new instrument only intended for sale to a Japanese domestic audience and select international markets, sourced directly from Tokyo.
A reinvention of Fender Japan's Jazzmaster platform, the new Traditional II 60s model features redesigned vintage-style pickups, as well as USA-spec CTS pots, vintage-style hardware and a modern 9 1/2" radius on the rosewood fretboard. The instrument has plenty of sparkle and percussive cut on tap, with a range of powerful and defined tones from the two single coil pickups. And engaging the Rhythm Circuit on the guitar's lower body horn yields warmer, wooly sounds. Lightweight at 7lbs 8oz, the guitar balances well on a strap and has been setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar where we specialize in Fender Offset instruments, featuring the factory 9-42 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation (string gauge and setup can be dialed in to buyer's preference at no charge upon request).
