You are looking at a Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster Electric Guitar 3-Color Sunburst, serial number V1636847. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 3.2 oz.)

Bringing a piece music history into the hands of the players of today, Fender is proud to introduce the American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster. Preserving Fender's legacy and heritage while delving deep into their roots, the American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster was crafted with original tooling and was built in the image of actual 1965 Jazzmaster models that Fender got their hands on. As a result, this '65 Jazzmaster offers all the authentic tone, look and feel of those sought-after mid '60s Jazz models with painstakingly accurate vintage detailing, period-correct design and classic '65 Jazz features.

The American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster brings you back to the  middle of the most electrifying decade in music history. This striking re-production features that classic offset Jazzmaster alder body that comes dressed in your choice of super thin Olympic White or 3-Color Sunburst flash coat lacquer finishes that allow the wood to breathe for a more natural resonance. The maple neck is shaped into a cozy mid '60s "C" profile, and just as the original '65 Jazzmasters, the neck is mated to a bound round-laminted rosewood 'board for classy, elegant looks that are matched by smooth playability and exceptional comfort. Enhancing the old-school feel and looks, the fretboard boasts a traditional 7.25" radius, 21 vintage-style frets, a vintage-style heel adjust truss rod, a bone nut and larger pearloid dot inlays.

Producing that authentic mid '60s Jazzmaster sound, the American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster comes fitted with a pair of specially-voiced American Vintage '65 Single-Coil Jazzmaster pickups that were designed, crafted and wound-to-spec with the originals in mind. Featuring dual-circuit wiring and controls, the electronics come equipped with a Volume and Tone controls for the Rhythm and Lead circuits, a 3-way pickup selector toggle, and a 2-position slide that allows you to switch between the Rhythm and Lead tone circuits. Holding true to the original '65 models, the American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster switched from using Strat-style control knobs to those famed white "witch hat" knobs with a chrome insert.

The American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster comes loaded up with period-correct hardware which includes an American Vintage Floating Tremolo with a Tremolo Lock button, a set of single line "Fender Deluxe" vintage-style tuners, a tortoiseshell pickguard and a 4-bolt vintage-style neck plate with serial number. Aged white plastic parts round out this vintage-inspired package. Comes complete with a hardshell case, a vintage '65 Jazz strap, cable and cloth, a set of flatwound strings,  '60s Jazz Info Kit, a bridge cover, and vintage & modern owner's manuals.
