Overview by GAK

The Fender Jazzmaster has seen a huge resurgence in recent years due to its endearing offset look and distinctive tone. Crafted by the artisan luthiers at the Fender Custom Shop, this particular JM is a prime example of this iconic guitar. If you’re looking to buy a world-class Jazzmaster, this one is hard to beat!

Classic Feel & Sound

Based on a sought-after 1962 model, this Fender Custom Shop Jazzmaster is undeniably vintage at its core. The smooth and effortless playability is catered for by the Maple neck, which boasts a comfortable '62 Jazzmaster profile. The neck is topped with a premium AAA Dark Rosewood fingerboard, which was specially selected for its darker colour, and Narrow Tall 6105 frets, which make expressive bending & vibrato a breeze. Whether you’re playing intricate surf rock or aggressive shoegaze, this JM can excel at any classic or contemporary style you throw at it. The neck’s bookmatched headstock enhances the old-school aesthetic.

The 2-piece Alder body is the tonal foundation of this 1962 Jazzmaster, giving it the well-rounded, full-bodied sound with pristine note clarity that you’d expect from such a high-quality tonewood. The body has been coated in an era-correct nitrocellulose finish, which promotes sustain & resonance whilst developing a unique visual character as time goes on.

Gorgeous Worn-In Look

This Custom Shop Jazzmaster has undergone the Heavy Relic treatment, the most intense of ageing process available. The result is a guitar that has the rustic & soulful character of a well-played companion that’s survived decades of intense gigging. From the meticulously aged hardware to the exposed wood, every part of this guitar has a story behind it. This process doesn’t just affect the look of this guitar, it affects the way it plays too. The back of the neck has the satin-smooth feel of a worn-in neck that’s had its lacquer gradually removed after years of playing.

Vintage Jazzmaster Tone

Amplifying this Jazz master’s resonant natural voice is a pair of Custom Shop '62 JM single-coils, which feature flat magnets. These pickups are precise recreations of vintage Fender pickups and feature a warm, crisp tone that can pull off those iconic Jazzmaster sounds with ease. Used in tandem with the JM’s versatile controls, a huge variety of cracking tones are at your fingertips.

Modern Reliability

With this Custom Shop '62 Jazzmaster, you have the best of both worlds - the pure tonal quality and timeless feel of a vintage Fender with the rock-solid reliability of a modern one. Made with top-notch components and the Custom Shop’s cutting edge construction methods, you can count on this JM to withstand the rigours of regular performance and recording.

Sporting a sleek Charcoal Frost Metallic finish and a characterful Heavy Relic aesthetic, this 1962 Jazzmaster has a fantastic look to match its striking sound. Once you’ve played this Custom Shop JM, you’ll find it hard to put it down!
